The Liney Moon Gets Triplets

“That’s probably my favorite, is knowing that the Liney Moon is a part of a lot of people’s families, due to the memories they’re making there.” – Caroline Bradford

The Liney Moon is a unique “hotel” tucked away in the Central Texas hill country near Dripping Springs.

The idea for the venue was born when owners Caroline and Stephen Bradford got married. There were options for wedding venues around Dripping Springs, but they had trouble finding exciting lodging for their guests. So they decided to solve that problem for other couples by starting The Liney Moon.

The Liney Moon began with the “Stellar House,” the main building with lodging, kitchen, and leisure amenities. With the Stellar House being booked every weekend, the Bradfords quickly looked at expanding their capacity. They decided to add ten Ulrich cottages in a horseshoe shape, a short walk up the hill from the Stellar House.

The Stellar House is great for larger groups, and the Horseshoe Cottages are great for couples. But the Bradfords wanted to add an “in-between” option. Enter the Triplets. Caroline worked with Brian Wrinkle, Ulrich Cabin consultant, to design the Triplets. The Triplets have much of the same modern design ethic as the Cottages. However, instead of the steel siding, these three cabins feature a painted exterior. While they look small from the outside, they can comfortably sleep six, due to their unique bunk bed arrangement.

Ulrich Cabins has been an important part of what Caroline and Stephen have been able to create. “I don’t think there’s another company out there like them,” says Caroline, “and could’ve done a better job, more efficiently than they did.

With the addition of the Triplets, the Liney Moon can now host a group of 70 people. In addition to wedding parties and guests, the Liney Moon is also a great option for corporate off-sites. For corporate events, guests get the best of both worlds: they can enjoy their own private, comfortable cabin without needing to commute to a different location for the night.

So go ahead and book your stay — enjoy the stars, and the Liney Moon!

Camp Thurman Part 4

Posted by eugene on August 18, 2017  /  in Blog  /  Comments off

You wouldn’t imagine finding a wooded oasis in the middle of the city. However, that is just what our friends at Camp Thurman have created.  Located in Pantego, TX, is a summer camp for children of all ages teaching leadership and teamwork with a Christ Centered-set of values.  Hosting an average 7,000 students each summer, Camp Thurman had several needs for Storage that Ulrich was happy to meet.  

Camp Thurman has grown rapidly since opening in 1969, and this year added their largest pool project; The Sea of Galilee, and Nile River.  With a total of Three Pools, Water Slides, Water Fountains, and a Lazy River, there is certainly the need for a Pool House.  The camp has two in total;  one shed houses pool toys, life vests, and miscellaneous supplies; and the other hosts Pool Chemicals.  

The Shed containing Chemicals needed to be in a particular spot that proved difficult to maneuver.  However, our driver Tim Glick worked hard into the wee hours of the night to ensure that the building was set exactly the way they needed it. He also carefully blocked and leveled to ensure they would never have issues with the doors, so it can always be safely locked for the protection of the young campers

Camp Thurman Part 3

With 14 acres of thick woods and hosting 7,000 kids per summer, Camp Thurman finds plenty of need for daily maintenance.  With their use of many of tools, lawn equipment, and ATV’s the camp saw the need for a few storage sheds.  Ulrich provided Camp Thurman with two storage sheds and a portable garage.

There will always be lawns to mow, and trees to be trimmed to keep the camp clear and safe for the kids.  The first shed houses tools, they need to maintain all of the bridges, rock walls, picnic tables, and equipment on the property.  Counselor “Tarzan” is happy to swing to the rescue fixing anything that has broken around Camp.  

You will also see Manager “Buckwheat” driving through on his ATV checking in on staff and campers alike.  His vehicle and others are kept safe from the weather in their dual entry portable garage.  

What you may not see is the quiet oasis that Camp Thurman has set up secretly behind their sheds and offices.  A quiet place for Staff to relax, BBQ and enjoy each others company, after a long day, working with young campers.  The walls of their Ulrich Buildings provide security to the items inside, as well as a sanctuary of the space created outside their walls.
