Hipcamp’s most talked about A-frame cabin can be yours for $700 and some elbow grease, according to it’s designer, Derek Diedricksen. With his breezy plan, the tiny home specialist proves that A-frames can be affordable and easy-to-build—not to mention incredibly dreamy weekend getaways.
Upgrading your land with one of Diedricksen’s Instagrammable cabins is also a great way to earn extra income. People are willing to go out of their way to stay in unique structures like this, so building one could make your land a destination. Hipcamp Host Mea has already hosted dozens of campers in her relaxing Star A-Frame Tiny Cabin in southern Oregon, which is based off Diedricksen’s design. Mea offers her land to Hipcampers as a place of peace and healing, as well as an opportunity to experience the beauty of native plants and animals.
Hipcampers’ favorite feature of Mea’s A-frame? You can open up the swing wall while you sleep to make it feel you’re right outside, amidst the towering oaks, manzanitas, and migratory birds that sprawl across Mea’s 100 acres.

Here’s Diedricksen walking viewers through one version of the A-frame (simplified versions reported costs of $300 to $700), and why he chose this design.
