This weekend I’ll be making the trip north to visit family in Pennsylvania. Whenever I think family holidays, friend gatherings or vacations, I start day dreaming about the magical spaces where they take place. When I was younger, I’d picture enormous mansions and vacation rental homes, but as I’ve grown up, my daydreams have wandered into the woods and specifically under the amazing roofs of a-frames.
I love all the windows in this one.
This tiny a-frame is so quaint! Somehow there’s room for a wood stove.
The Allandale house is so much more than a simple a-frame. I suggest you scroll through the album and fall in love like I did.
Instead of renting, you could always build one yourself.
When I’m finished with my residency, I’ll just drive a few hours across Oregon and move into this modern a-frame. I imagine the conversation will go something like this, *knock knock* “Oh, hi Jonya, Brandon and Julian! Your new housemate is here. Don’t mind me, I’ll cook and clean, you guys just do your thing…”
As much as I love homes meant for large families and entertaining, I love simple, tiny a-frames. I imagine a blissful little summer of solitude or a cozy winter where I spend my time reading books and sipping tea.
Lastly, this blue guy. Sadly, I couldn’t locate a source no matter how hard I tried.
Here are more a-frames and some simple space inspiration if you need something to draw from for your daydreams.
Have you ever stayed in an a-frame? Was it yours or a friend’s? Did you rent it? I must know every detail. Happy daydreaming!
