A Frame Homes

A Frame Homes for Sale in Utah

What is an A frame home? An A-frame home is an architectural house or building style featuring steeply-angled sides that usually begin at or near the foundation line and meet up at the top in the shape of the letter A. This is a desired home designed. This type of architecture attracts short term renters and home buyers. They are easier to build yourself or with a team. Usually these homes are very open, spacious, and provide for a lot of light inside. 

These homes are heavily sloped, which is a great benefit in the snow because it keeps it from building up and causing damage to the home. Most A-frame homes are manufactured and guarantee the frame for 25-30 years of life. If you are looking for an investment property, keep in mind that these homes are usually cheaper than a traditional home so your value may not increase as much as you would like out of an investment. On the flip side, the lower cost is a huge advantage for buyers. There is a plethora of A-frame homes available for sale in Utah and most resemble a cabin-like home. 

Oftentimes you will find these homes described as a cabin home, so when you are looking you can broaden your search by using “cabin” as a description. You can also keep an open mind to homes that have the A-frame look and have been expanded upon to create larger square footage; however, this can defeat the purpose of this style being more affordable.
