A Beautiful A-Frame Cabin You Can Build Yourself

...Or Have Someone Else Build for You


Some people go into the woods and pitch a tent.

Some people go into the woods and construct their own beautiful A-frame cabin.

Then, there are others who go into the woods to make a documentary about a legendary witch and do not make it out alive. 

Fortunately, you’re in the middle group this time.

You can thank Everywhere Travel Co., a dealer in tiny homes that wants to pass you the blueprints to a fine-looking A-frame cabin, which they’ve just made available for all your living-in-the-woods needs.

Imagine where Grizzly Adams would live, if Grizzly Adams lived in a vaulted three-bedroom beauty with a modern kitchen. Okay good, now everyone's on the same page.

You have two options when it comes to building your own A-frame. You could grab a stack of paper and a protractor and go full-architect to design the house of your dreams. It will have a roof and walls and never actually be built because you have no clue what you're doing and it’s a totally unsafe house that looks just awful. No offense.

Or—and you can probably guess which way we're leaning here—you can buy the plans to the Ayfraym cabin for just $1,950. If you choose that route, they will send you all the schematics for a 1,574-square-foot three-bedroom house that has a lookout loft up top, three huge cedar decks, vaulted ceilings, a kitchen and a bunk room for housing all your friends.

Once you've got those plans, you can build it yourself. Or, you know, hire a bunch of really talented people to do the building part. The company can even provide all the materials you’ll need. They'll also send you a hat, a hammer and a mug, so you can stand around pointing at lumber to appear like you’re contributing while your general contractor really runs the show.

Actually, there's also a third option for acquiring a beautiful A-frame cabin. You can skip the whole DIY thing entirely and just have Everywhere build the house for you themselves. That'll cost you around $250,000.

Which is a small price to pay for the country’s most remote IHOP.
