About This File

The A-Frame house is a very popular architectural style, peaking in popularity between the 1950s and 1970s. The inexpensiveness of this style made it ideal for the post-World War II prosperity seen in North America. The steep, sloping roof, deep set eaves and generally triangular shape are some of the defining characteristics of this style of house.


Not the most common style seen among new houses in Canada, the A-Frame is seen more among cabins and cottages lining lakes, especially so in the foothills and in the Rockies.




I have included a couple ploppable versions (see: Parks menu) and a few growables. Once again, the lot may be updated in the future as my lotting skills increase.

Dependencies: None

Hey Beebs, I didn't even notice that you released anything until now! Very nice house, the roof is at the perfect angle, the diagonals are nice and you even made a decent lot! Very good job, this deserves a 10!

The ploppable version of this lot causes an annoying sound effect to run during gameplay, even with the in-game sfx options disabled. The sound effect I believe is an industrial one, and it starts when the game is minimized and re-maximized, running constantly thereafter until the city is exited. Not sure if you knew anything about this, but I wanted to bring it to your attention

This is a beautiful model, but the diagonal version seems not to have been included in your upload. Any chance we could get it? Any new diagonal building is useful, and this is a particularly good one.
