The A-Frames houses was mostly based in the 1950's to 1970's. It was originally form Europe, China, and the South Pacific. With a nice triangle shape, the house does have much living space. They are usually on 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 stories. Since the ceiling is high, the sloping walls kill dead space. They have deep eaves and gables are in the front and back of the house. Most of the walls are slanted so it has very few vertical walls
