Like A-Frames? You Have to See this Unique Mobile Home Addition!

We came across this unique mobile home addition and we just had to share it with you! A-frame homes are regarded as classic. While the shape has been used for centuries they A-frame became especially popular as vacation homes in the 1960’s because they were fairly easy to construct. A-frame homes work well with mobile homes simple rectangular shape, too.


In the 1960’s, at the height of A-frame home’s popularity, one mobile homeowner created a really neat single wide with an A-frame with a cute Swiss chalet style:

We were never able to determine if this model was affiliated with a builder. It very well could be factory made.

Creative Way to Add More Space

The owners of this mobile home did a great job designing this unique mobile home addition. Not only were they able to add a huge open living space to the home, they also added a loft space over the existing mobile home with a spiral staircase.

The entire addition offers several windows with a nice view of the property’s wooded backyard. They also added a massive deck, perfect for entertaining.

    Not an A-Frame at all; just a tall gable. An A-Frame has wall/roof structures that extend from ground to peak, acting as self-supporting form. This is standard construction, gabled roof over vertical supporting walls.
