6. A-Frame Family House Plans

2146 sq ft. (56′ length x 26′ width)
$328,338 Cost to build

Yes, the estimated cost is pretty high for this A-frame house, but this is a real 3-bedroom house with 2 bathrooms. With plenty of natural light coming through huge windows and glass doors, your family will feel really comfortable and happy living there.

Medium size A-Frame Family House

All 3 bedrooms are very spacious. The stairs leading to the 2nd level are easy to use. The whole design of the house is modern and elegant.

Considering the highly affordable cost of these A-frame house plans (2 times cheaper than any plan with similar square footage), we highly recommend going with it.

As an added benefit, a steep metal roof is easy to maintain to keep your house dry, especially if it rains a lot in your area.

Tiny House Cabin Plans

This is a perfect example of a clean and modern design that Den is becoming famous for. This model has a very distinct and pleasing gabled style roof almost 14′ high that provides a nice headroom space on the sleeping loft.

The clean modern lines of this cabin are both esthetical and energy-efficient for modern green living.

Tiny House Plans

The living space is economically designed to accommodate a full bathroom, wood-burning stove, and a tiny kitchenette. Overall, this is one of the simplest designs with large windows for creating an impression of a spacious interior.

Loft Cabin Floor Plans

Not everyone is a fan of A-frame design. Some of us just want something simple and economical.

This cabin design delivers just that. The outside wood finish looks like Shou Sugi Ban – the ancient Japanese wood-charring technique for preserving it in a natural environmentally-friendly way. 

Affordable Loft Cabin Plans

The floor plan offers a large living room, a small kitchenette, a bedroom loft, and a classic full bathroom with a tub, plus a wood-burning stove. The floor plan is super-affordable and easy to build.

Modern Alpine Cabin Plans

If you love natural light, you’ll be a fan of these plans! 2 large skylights will brighten the whole interior in addition to the floor-to-ceiling frontal glass facade. A galley kitchen can be extended to the walkaround deck providing more space for cooking and socializing.

In this set of plans, Den Outdoors is offering customers two options for how to approach the gabled end. All glass for an expansive view of the outdoors is obviously a more expensive one while the glass doors only on the bottom part will definitely save you some money.

10. Alpine Cabin 2.1

920 sq ft. (36′ length x 18′ width)
$140,760 Cost to build

Small Alpine Cabin with 2 bedrooms

At 920 square feet, this cabin has a highly efficient layout and 24-foot tall ceilings also give a sense of expansive space while inside. This cabin is also a perfect candidate for being used as a granny flat house.

With two bedrooms and a large living room, your granny will have plenty of space for her hobbies and daily activities. It also features a galley kitchen and a full bathroom with a soaking tub – what else could you wish for?

Modern Alpine Cabin with 2 bedrooms

As with a previous Alpine cabin, the siding can be charred (instead of painting or staining) using that Japanese technique (Shou Sugi Ban). It may not only save you some money on paint but will last much longer as well.
