Irresistible A-frame cabins are among Hipcamp’s most-booked and most profitable types of structures on our platform. Check out the A-frames that our campers count as faves. Hipcamp’s most talked about A-frame, the Star A-Frame Tiny Cabin, can be yours for $700-to-$3,000 and some elbow grease, according to its designer Derek Diedricksen.
With his breezy plan, the tiny home specialist proves that A-frames can be affordable and easy-to-build. Plus, the cabin will quickly pay for itself and start earning you additional income when you become a Hipcamp Host and list your land for campers to book.
Building one of Diedricksen’s Instagrammable tiny cabins on your land can also provide a great way to earn extra income as a Hipcamp Host. People go out of their way to find and book stays in unique structures like this, so building one could make your land a profitable camping and glamping destination.
One of our Hipcamp Hosts named Mea has already had hundreds of Hipcampers book stays in her relaxing Star A-Frame Tiny Cabin, which she created on her property in southern Oregon which she calls Cedar Bloom.
What is it that all of these paying campers love about Mea’s A-frame? You can open up the swing wall while you nap to make it feel you’re sleeping outside amidst the towering oaks and manzanitas.
Inspired by what Mea has built? Start hosting campers who are excited to visit your land. It’s a great way to earn some extra money.
In this video Diedricksen takes viewers on a tour through one incredibly livable version of his A-frame cabin that cost $1200 to build, and he explains the many benefits of this design. Simplified versions of this A-frame can be built for $300 to $700.
