A-Frame Elevations and Sketches





I'm uploading a few of our design drawings that people have requested. A front and rear framing elevation (note we ended up moving the windows in the final project), a foundation sketch, and a sketch of the mending plates that we used to join the top and bottoms of the rafters. The drawings are rather basic (I'm not an architect) but they were acceptable for our permit inspector.

Hi, My name is Drew. I live in Fairbanks AK, this summer I am building an A-Frame cabin for me and my family. I had a couple of questions about your prints. At what length on the 2X10 do you put the cross brace that becomes the second floor joices? If you could email me at ambonnewell@alaska.edu it would be much appreciated. Thank you for your time and help:-)
