This Is The Perfect Modern A-Frame Cabin

, , , , , , , , , , By Catherine

Raise your hands if escaping to your very own corner of the world is high on the wish list these days.

Personally, I’ve always wanted a simple cabin, with large windows with views of the surrounding forest, for an immersive nature getaway.

With time and the more I look at pictures of Scandinavian summerhouses, my checklist has grown to include more than pure function, but form and comfort too. And if I’m totally honest, a little luxury would be the cherry on top.

I found all that and more with the A-Frame House by Den, a Catskill-based company founded by Mike Romanowicz and Lizzie Kardon and inspired by their own cabin-building experience.

The couple saw the need for well-thought-out designs that were easy to build and cost-effective. They sell prefab kits and cabin plans , and the A-Frame House is one of them.

It has a classic design with modern amenities and finishes. With 1000 square feet (93m²) of living space, it can accommodate up to 6 people. It features a lofted master bedroom, a bunk bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen with 24″ cabinets, a bathroom with a shower, a fireplace, and a laundry nook.

The plan for the A-Frame House is available for purchase for $349 (€290), and based on the national average of $153/sqft, the cost to build this model is $153,000 (€126,400).

The renders below show the cabin carefully furnished with timeless pieces by Skagerak, Muuto and Ferm Living, among others, which provide a stylish, warm, and minimal Nordic vibe.

What a great retreat – I want one!

Pretty sweet, right?
