A frames seem to be admired in the tiny house world, and while they can't often be placed on wheeled trailers because of height restrictions (and because a frame cabins aren't so space efficient), they ARE sturdy, simple to build, and often VERY affordable- as is the case here. For those reasons its easy to see why a frame camps, cottages, and tiny houses have endured for quite some time. In this case, here is a very affordable one built by Garrett Hohn and Alla Ponomareva that serves as not only a family getaway, but as an airbnb rental, AND occasionally a hunting blind- hence the name. Talk about hunting, camping or clamping in style. This is but one of three super cool rentals the have on the site too- be sure to check out the links to all of them below.

I liked and commented, but I have been subscribed for quite sometime.
Please consider introducing people to the builder in Tennessee- Incredible Tiny Homes and tell about his history.
My son is looking to build something similar in the ozarks. Great design. I would love to see more like this or the a frame. Someone else mentioned your picker runs with your daughter. I agree, would love to see more of those.
2K is still a good deal. I like A Frames a lot
MasifEv builds beautiful tiny houses. I’ve already hit the like and I’ve subscribed.
Nice design. Cute.
Do you ever o anything in Northern California?
There was a man who built a tiny house on wheels in Japan. I don’t know his name but his wood work was phenomenal. My dad used to do stuff like that. I love tiny houses but also like odd eclectic stuff with awesome wood working details.
I have been thinking a lot about the transforming A-frame lately. The dart is pretty interesting too. As for tiny house builders, I have a list: Taking it old school, I wouldn’t mind seeing what Jay Schafer is up to. Also, as you mentioned box trucks, you might be interested in visiting with Bob Wells. He’s not a tiny house guy, per se, he’s more of a nomad, but a lot of his channel “CheapRVliving” is dedicated to turning vehicles into homes. Also, kind of interested in what you might have going on in your backyard tiny house laboratory.
I like how straight and honest this guy is. Does he have a YouTube channel?
Nice tiny build would like to see Chris the Capable Carpenter do a tiny house.
I like the knee-wall…it really is a more efficient use of space, much as we all love A-frames!
Well of course, Deek, you are my fave builder! 😀 But seriously, you are, because you do it on a budget, which is what tiny houses are supposed to be all about, as far as I’m concerned. A house anyone can afford should be a basic right!
I do have your books, Micro Shelters and Micro Living, and hope to use the Transforming A-Frame design as a template for a guest house since my main build will be <300 sq ft (no room for guests)...getting started on that once building material prices come back down. Thanks for another great video!
The hinged walls are so amazing!!!
Love this A-frame!!!
