A Tiny Yellow A-frame Cabin/Cottage in Maine

     As I've mentioned a few times before, I'm a sucker for A-frames, in fact, very soon, I have an A-frame cabin plan set I'll be releasing- one that transforms, and can be built, for around $1200 or so. It'd work great as a getaway vacation cabin, a mini studio, or a backyard retreat.

As for this A-frame tiny house here, this is one I spotted earlier this year on a drive into Acadia National Park in Maine- right near Bar Harbor. This is the office for a cabin rental compound- little cottages you can stay in. I was in a hurry, and never got to see the inside, but the exterior is fun and inspirational enough- at least I feel so. Here's a shot of the sign as well, so if you're ever in that neighborhood, you'd be able to find the place, and take a peek inside.

As for our April 2014 Hands-On Tiny House-Building workshop, we'll have some more details soon, and it looks like we MIGHT tackle constructing two little cabins again, start to finish- one a ground-bound mini cabin in the woods, and the other, a tree house..... still some planning to do, but that's the aim. Two projects ARE better than one, as we then get to divide the group up nicely, and more people get even MORE hands-on experience.
