Friday Cabins #16: America's Best A-Frames
Back to our bread and butter, for your future's benefit
We made it folks, another week in the books and another Friday Cabins round-up for your viewing pleasure, brought to you once again and as always by Cabins Etc. Each week we deliver to you dreamy cabins from the pages of Field Mag, the online publication where the great outdoors and good design meet. And yes, we are aware of how virtually impossible it is to buy or build in *THIS* economy, but daydreaming isn’t a crime, right? After all, it is one of the pillars of ✨manifestation✨.
Today, it isn’t freezing in New York and it feels like a gift while we come to the end of what’s felt like a longgg month (anyone else?). With major holidays Easter and 4/20-and major anti-holiday Tax Day-behind us, there’s not much else to look forward to in April other than it being over. C’mon May flowers.
In this afternoon’s newsletter, we revisit our old friend, the A-Frame. Experience this triangle-shaped home for yourself by renting an expertly curated A-Frame vacation house. Or, if you somehow actually can, buy your own A-Frame kit. Below we break down the best options for both.

Live out your A-Frame fantasy and impress your friends for a couple of days (or more) in these A-Frame rentals spread out across the contiguous United States. From Washington to New York, the States are home to many impressive A-Frame listings, but here the best of the best have been gathered for your enjoyment.
Just like the vacationers of the 50s, 60s, and 70s, buyers today are turning to the convenience, affordability, and DIY essence of prefab A-Frame kits or home plans. Although the demand hasn't reached the zenith it did in years past, when companies from SEARS to aluminum and plywood manufacturers were selling A-Frame kits straight the from pages of a catalog, it's easier than ever to get your hands on your very own, thanks to the internet.
Think of prefab kits as buying and assembling an IKEA dresser-almost everything you need to build the piece is included in a handy kit, but instead of putting together some seating, at the end of it all, you'll have an entire house. Buying home plans is like buying the instructions only-while it is a significantly cheaper option, you'll need to gather materials and tools completely on your own.
Here, some of the best A-Frame kits and plans offered around the world are rounded up for your browsing pleasure.
Live long. Prosper. Enjoy your weekend.
