You came to a point in your life where you need more than a roof on your head. You need a space of the right size to cover for all your needs and you need to make it happen without relying too much on your bank. This is why we created A shape, a gorgeous a-frame house for a growing family. Here at Loom Crafts, we believe a house should be a launchpad and not an anchor. A house should improve the quality of your life without making you slave of a mortgage.

A shape houses can be built anywhere you want and on any style of foundation, existing or new. They are great for off-grid applications because of the steep roof angle which is perfect for solar panels.

Also, their unique geometry makes them intrinsically energy-efficient.

The large roof area offers a perfect opportunity for the installation of solar panels and the service space behind the walls (in the lower part of the roof) is perfect for housing technical installations, while doubling as storage space.

There is so much you can accomplish when you start your off-grid adventure with a house like the Loom Crafts A shape.
