Two times a day I drive by an A-frame house on the way to get Hannah from school. I like it because it is different. I like it because it is quirky. (Quirky defines me…)
But then I wonder what it would be like furnishing a space so awkward. I try to picture my loved pieces of furniture in this awkward space.
I mean, what happens at the sides? Even if you installed built-ins, the built-ins would be awkward! Don’t get me wrong, I think I’d relish the chance to furnish and decorate an A-frame house. But they are a real conundrum, much like this house!
To my mind, the two vertical walls would be the obvious only-spots to lean dressers, cabinets, etc. against. But these precious walls would also be the obvious spaces for windows and doors!
So of course, I went a-Google-image hunting and found some great photos :)
This one is extra special with all the glass and surrounding water.
What water? Check it out at night! A view of the inside to!
Furnishing an a-frame house
Sloping sides? I mean, super low furniture and very little built-in storage potential.
Still, not a whole lot for storage, huh?
But makes a great private little get-away!
