1970 A-Frame in Berkeley Springs – $99K

Berkley Springs A-Frame

I have come across several A-Frame-related tidbits during the past few days so I figured it was time to do a post on this 1970 A-Frame in Berkeley Springs in West Virginia. It is a small weekend home on an acre that could be tuned into a modern retreat. Here’s a site devoted to the A-Frame, a simple second-home design made popular during the mid-century period. Retro Renovation did a post on the vacation designs (including A-Frames) used to promote the use of Douglas Fir Plywood in the 1960s. My brother’s design for my holiday email also went with the A-Frame theme. Maybe it is a sign I should buy this?
