“Avrames can be built anywhere you want, on any style of foundation — new or pre-existing. They’re perfect for off-grid applications, and the steeply angled roof is ideal for installing solar panels,” Indrek Kuldkepp, founder of Avrame, said.
“Insulation has traditionally been the tricky part of building, which in the past kept A-frames as summer homes. But that issue has long-since been solved — and now, A-frames are a perfect year-round housing solution,” Indrek Kuldkepp continued.
