These plans: A-frame house plans via DEN. I always get excited when I see that DEN has released yet another incredible set of house plans. If you haven’t heard of DEN, it is a company that are producing thoughtfully-designed house plans from the Catskills in Upstate NY and shipping all over the world. Click on the link in the show notes and take a look at this wonder. The Alpine 2.1 house has been described as the perfect small modern house and I concur. At 920 square feet (or 85.4 sq. meters) with 24′ foot tall ceilings, the Alpine 2.1 is a perfect blend of comfort and restraint. It satisfies my love for minimal esthetics and refinement. A highlight for me is the open living room area with that wondrous wall of windows. If you could build a home like this, where would you put it?
