Ulrich Mega Cabin the Perfect Gathering Place

Frank and Sharon McEachern are city dwellers who bought 500 acres in rural Paradise, TX for weekend getaways. They loved hiking and exploring, but they couldn’t host family and friends in their little “shack.”

Fast forward 12 years, and the McEacherns started looking for a way to build a spacious cabin. They didn’t want to hire a traditional general contractor who would build on site, since they couldn’t be out at the property enough to ensure that the building would be built to their satisfaction.

They started looking for a cabin builder who could deliver the assembled cabin to the property, already built. Sharon researched extensively, even visiting a company in Tennessee. But no one could deliver a ready-built cabin with the size the McEacherns needed.

Sharon wanted three bedrooms, a spacious dining room for a large table, and a play space for the grandkids. With the help of Ulrich Cabin Design Consultant Tonya Johnson, Sharon was able to check all the boxes.

We delivered the cabin to the site in two sections, and then connected them together in position. We built the porch on site after the cabin was in place.

The final result was a 32×62 ft mega cabin with a full length, extra wide porch. High ceilings and a large, open concept design make for a wonderfully spacious living area.

The McEacherns spend most weekends and holidays at the cabin. Sharon especially loves the view from the porch, looking out across their private lake.

Sharon describes the Ulrich culture as having “A real service mentality, which I greatly respect.”

Sharon loves the quality of her cabin. “It’s way above average,“ she says. “I would recommend it to my son, my daughter, you know — people you tell the truth to.”

Family Fun at the Lake House

How do you get your teenagers to spend more time with Mom and Dad? Vee Hanssen and her husband Keith decided a lake house might be just the ticket.

The Hanssen’s teenagers love surfing and wakeboarding, and the Ulrich cabin-turned-lake house has been a hit.

Vee worked extensively with Ulrich Cabin Design Consultant Brian Wrinkle to perfect the details of the layout.

Borrowing from the trendy Scandinavian style, the Hanssens settled on an all pine interior. The result is a clean design that leans a bit more modern and a little less rustic than the typical Ulrich cabin.

After the cabin was delivered, the Hanssens added a porch, outdoor bathroom, and custom tile shower. The porch features cable style railings and a misting system to keep the Hanssen’s cool on those warm summer afternoons.

Vee loves the view over Possum Kingdom Lake, and her dog Daisy enjoys frequent dips in the cool lake water. It’s been great — the teenagers love playing on the water and Keith and Vee have a comfortable spot to relax when it gets hot.

Vee is extremely impressed with the quality of the cabin.

“I wanna say thank you to all the guys and gals there at Ulrich that made the process pleasant,” says Vee. “I just love my cabin and I just want to thank you so much — and hope to do it again!”
