This A-frame is nestled in the woods by a creek in the town I grew up in (suburban Cincinnati) - it's the first one I ever saw. Many A-frames have more windows on them than this one, as well as decks and outdoor areas provided by extended eaves on the front and back.
This roof slopes halfway to the ground, and has eaves like most typical A-frames.
More playful geometry...
...and a little more.
This reminds me a little bit of Fay Jones's Thorncrown Chapel in Arkansas. The stone and glass are so striking.
While this home (one of my many dream homes) draws on other precedents, one can't deny it's got a little A-frame in it.
This one seems a little like a smushed down spread out A-frame.

The urban A-shaped home. This one is in London.
A Vermont charmer that uses the steeply sloped roof to thwart the piling snow.
here it is from the front. Don't you love the way they played with structure with those wrap-around corner windows?
Hello Sky! Yeah, I'm pointing at you! In two dimensions, this house looks like an A-frame. In 3-D and in section, it's more reminiscent of Palm Springs modern.
This is more about setting than A-frame, but I just can't get enough of this perfect pavilion, so I'm throwing it in the mix.

Oh heck, let's get a big shot of that exterior - it's such a great house.
