Beautiful Tiny A-Frame Cabin in the Forest!

A-frame cabin is a very simple and efficient way of building a house. It is an architectural style that uses triangular frames that are connected at the corners. This style is perfect for people who want to build a house that is easy to maintain. This off-grid cabin was self-built by a family in Ontario, Canada to be a cozy fairy tale getaway in the woods. This cabin/tiny House was finished in 2021 and it cost approx. CAD 20k to build. A bit more than half of that was the cost of the materials. The family built most of it themselves which helped reduce the cost but they also hired professional help for some of the tasks. The cabin measures approx. 16′ x 12′ on the main floor and it sits on a poured concrete pier foundation.
