Minimalist A-Frame Cabin Is A Temple To Serenity And Relaxation

The whole point of a cabin in the woods is to get away from it all. And somehow the architect behind the Allandale House, William O'Brien Jr., has managed to design a structure that looks less complicated than even a tent.

The cabin's exaggerated A-frame design might result in ridiculously high ceilings and what looks to the untrained eye like a general waste of space. But who cares when it also affords those stunning floor-to-ceiling windows with their unobstructed view of the surrounding poplar trees? Let's hope the owners are open to the idea of a timeshare.

    Nice looking, at least on the inside.
    I remember when A frames were all the rage... unbearably hot inside generally though. Maybe they work better in a cold environment?

      From what I understand, A Frame houses originated in Holland, for the specific purpose of shedding snow from the roof without too much effort involved. So yeah, I think your hypothesis is pretty spot on! :)
