A Frame House Plans
A-frame homes have been cast in the role of a "getaway" place for a number of good reasons. First, the steep pitch or triangular shape of the a-frame's roof is undaunted by the weight of heavy snowfall. Second, the upper floor plan can be used either as a sleeping loft or for storage space. And finally, exterior maintenance of an A-frame style home is generally limited to its front and rear, since the roof extends nearly to the ground on both sides.
