THE ART OF TRIANGLES

THE BACK
THE SIDE
THE FRONT

Sometimes in our travels
we see interesting things.
This
TRIANGLE HOUSE
piqued our interest
because we had seen
something just like it
in another state, miles away, months before.

In that state it was
a CARRYOUT store.

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN
A TRIANGLE BUILDING?

BETTER KNOWN AS AN
A-FRAME

When I first started building, I wanted to build these. I just could not find a market for them. My logic was: only two walls, and they are mostly doors and windows. The Rood side is strictly that, roofing. At the time I started building Roofing was the cheapest building material, so to me it would be a win-win situation. BUT I never built one. I still like the idea.

There was a fantastic triangle house in Tennessee that I was very tempted to buy. It looked great on the outside, but the problem is that the rooms are very awkward on the inside (not to mention small).

There is one in the next town over from us and one kind of like it in the country. They are very interesting to me.

We always called them A frame homes. They were quite popular at one time. I don't see any new ones being built though. Some friends of ours had one and I loved it as they had a huge fire place in the front room. Hope all is well at your house today. I've been at the camper since Thursday and it's heating up here again so I'll probably go home tomorrow.

I've never seen a triangle building. Wonder what makes someone choose that particular design?

Lori said...

I can remember when something called an A-Frame house became popular and a few were built in our area -- back in the late 70s/early 80s, I believe.

I knew they had a name when I posted but couldn't think of it. Thanks for reminding me they are called A-Frames. I think they're really neat.

interesting.......I think when we lived in Utah there are a few houses like this up at the ski resorts! Happy Monday!

I have NEVER, EVER seen a triangle house. You got to see not one, but two!

We have a couple around here, in the hills, with all windows in front. Pretty darn neat ~

Bobbi said...

I've seen triangle houses before.. this is so cool!

Nelle said...

I have never seen one although I have seen several geodesic dome homes. I bet they are cheap to build.

Lucy said...

How cool. I would like to see one inside.

Pat MacKenzie said...

I've seen a couple back east (Canada) but not the inside. You're got me curious now. I'll have to google it.

Cliff said...

There used to be several of them here along the Missouri River as cabins but haven't seen any for a while. I suppose construction was quick but of course the wasted space was a problem. (unless of course you're a conehead from SNL)

Hollie said...

There's a triangle house on the way to my mom's. I've often wondered what the inside would look like!!

I have seen a few of these triangle buildings but, have never been in one. I hope all is well with you and your family!
