Mario’s 10 x 10 Weekend A-Frame with Terrace


Mario is one of our Tiny House Talk readers and submitted this fantastic guest house/weekend cottage that’s an A-frame with a terrace (porch) and absolutely stunning views.

He was inspired by Derek Diedricksen’s $1,200 transforming a-frame cabin (check it out here江苏快3,中国江苏快3,江苏快三,中国江苏快三) and spent Saturday and Sundays building the a-frame with his brother over the span of about 5 months. While the home doesn’t have water and/or electricity right now, Mario plans to add in a kitchen and some solar panels in the future. There is an out-house near the cabin, and a second-story loft that sleeps about one person.

With the porch included, the A-frame is about 5 x 4 meters ( approx. 16×13 feet), and the inside of the a-frame is 3 x 3 meters (around 10×10 feet). He spent $4,500 on the build and it’s quite fantastic!

    Reminds me of the A-frame tent I built for Medieval Recreation. Same size, but designed so you can lift one wall, kinda like his porch, for more room.

    It’s hardly bigger than a tent, so not practical for real living. But it sure it attractive on the outside!

      What’s practical depends on how you live and what you’re used to… Something to realize is there are parts of the world where this would be considered suitable for an entire family to live but those places people also generally don’t spend over 90% of their entire lives indoors like in countries where larger homes are the norm, among other differences…

      Besides, tents can be any size from just enough room for one person to well over 10,000 Sq Ft and house an army… and there are many different types of tents, like Yurts, for example… So you’d have to be a lot more specific for size comparing to have any real meaning…

        江苏快3,中国江苏快3,江苏快三,中国江苏快三True. I was thinking of a 10’x10′ tent we had which was really nice for camping, but we still cooked and ate outside, and used the campgrounds’ bathrooms. (We only camped in nice weather.)

    江苏快3,中国江苏快3,江苏快三,中国江苏快三Not bad on outside. No way could I live in something that small. I do love tiny homes. This one is way to tiny. Is built cool though.

      They’re probably his kids and he doesn’t want their faces online.

    The cabin is great for a off grid or weekend house and it’s very cute!
    I think it is great that ordinary citizens can put up their own weekend retreat, but most of the time there is a building code or CC&R restrictions.
