Building an A-frame House (VIDEOS)

Building an A-frame House (VIDEOS)

A-frame house kits. This is what we make.

However, over the past year, we spent a considerable amount of effort (resources, time, money) in making YouTube videos to share our philosophy and teach you what you should focus on when embarking on the journey of self-building a house.

Building an A-frame house is something anyone can do.
We know this for a fact since we’ve seen many success stories and not one single failure.

1. An overview of what we do

To get a good idea of which kind of houses we make, we thought you’d need to see a few examples of what our customers have built.

As we ship worldwide, these are just a few examples… those we can reach from our headquarters with 1-2 days of traveling. 

2. Why we do things the way we do

We get tons of good feedback on our work.
BUT… sometimes people wish we were doing things a bit differently.

As there are reasons behind every aspect of our business, we thought you’d like to know why we do things the way we do…

3. Prefab House Kits – What to Expect 

If you are not familiar with “kit homes”, you definitely want to watch this video.

In the video, we also address several aspects of the project you need to keep in mind and take care of.

5. Avrame TRIO 57 Walkthrough

This is the long-awaited walkthrough of one of the houses in the TRIO series.

This house sits on a tiny island near the coast of Estonia and it took us 3 days to go shooting this video for you.

We enjoyed every minute of that trip. It was well worth the effort… 

6. Avrame DUO 100 Walkthrough

This DUO is one of the first Avrame houses we’ve built.
 It is about a 1-hour drive from our headquarters.

In this video, we explain its characteristics and functionalities and we give you a tour.

7. Living off-grid

Many of you entertain the idea of living off-grid.

I have been living off-grid since 2014 and in this video, I share my experience, along with useful tips to get started.

8. Heating Systems for A-frame Homes

We made this video because we found out there was no good resource on the internet addressing this topic in a professional way.

The heating system is an important part of the house and it cannot be left out from your planning.

In the video, we discuss options and we give tips on how to make sure you keep your house warm without spending a fortune.

9. Energy Efficient Homes – What to keep in mind?

If you care about energy efficiency and keeping your bills low, this video will warm your heart.

Avrame kit homes are engineered to have great energy performance. However, there are a couple of things you should keep into consideration to maximize the energy efficiency of the house you are going to build.

10. Build a Vision About Your future Home

This is the very first video we made when we started working seriously on our YouTube channel.

Building your “vision” is the key step to get everything right. 
It is so important that we mention it practically everywhere.

Make sure you watch this video and you get clear about what you really want and what you need.

11. Budgeting Tips for Housebuilding

This video followed the one about vision.
In fact, getting the budget right is one of the most important things when planning to build a house.

Over time, we developed better tools to help you and today we offer a Budgeting Guide that includes a professional spreadsheet for budgeting, along with a 30 pages guide to fill the budget properly.

Watching this video will give you a good idea of why budgeting is important and what you should keep in mind when thinking about costs.

12. A-frame Home Kits – Questions & Answers

We made this video when out YouTube channel reached 3000 subscribers.
As I write, we have almost 5000…

In the video, we address the most common question we get from our audience.

We also have a text version of this Q&A that you can find here:
Avrame Frequently Asked Questions.


We started making videos one year ago to explain our vision and what we believe is important for you to start on your self-building journey.

Along the way, we met thousands of wonderful people and today our YouTube community counts almost 5000 subscribers.
