Mid-Century A Frame Cabin Gets A Complete Interior Makeover
A-frame houses are super popular right now but they’ve actually been around for a long time and some are even in dire need of a renovation. Take this charming little A-frame cabin for instance. It was forgotten for a long time before a couple decided to give it a second chance. They didn’t hesitate to give it a complete interior makeover but they also realized that some things were worth preserving, in particular the mid-century architecture. The cabin was originally built in 1974 and is located in Vancouver, in the Craigdarroch Beach neighborhood.
The new owners names the cabin Kyst Hus which means “coastal home” in Danish. They managed to turn it into a wonderful two-bedroom retreat which blends modern minimalism with mid-century accents and strong Scandinavian influences. Originally, the cabin featured turquoise walls and shag carpeting which were replaced with a simpler decor defined by clean lines and natural materials and finishes. Unlike the prefab cabins which are so popular today, this home has a history and that’s something you cant’t really put a price on.
