Thanks to their unique design, A-frames have an undeniable charm that reminds many of us of our favorite vacation homes. However, this style of house is actually perfectly suited to year-round living as well.
A-frames typically come with lofts that make them excellent family homes, but the sloping roofs also mean that there is plenty of leftover space that's ideal for using as storage. The following floor plans demonstrate this perfectly!
