Ever since vacationing in Colorado years ago, Julie has dreamed of having her own retirement cabin. After retirement from her teaching position, Julie decided to move closer to her daughter and sister in the Bryan, TX area.
Before she retired, Julie had a 3 bedroom home in San Angelo, but she decided she really didn’t need a large home in Bryan. She just needed enough space for herself and her dogs.
Julie obsessed for months over the design of her retirement cabin. With Ulrich Design Consultant Tonya Johnson’s help, Julie settled on a 16×48 ft Ulrich Log Cabin. Julie loved touring the Ulrich cabin factory and seeing the cabins under construction.
Located not far from Lake Bryan, Julie’s site was on a small paved road, and is nestled in dense forest. Julie had the land cleared and the needed utilities installed in preparation for the cabin’s arrival.
The cabin features a single bedroom and bath, a small kitchen, laundry, and a dining and living area. Julie wanted her porch to face the woods, rather than the road. She loves reading and relaxing on the porch, especially when it rains.
Julie really likes the quality of the cabin. She’s had almost zero maintenance, and her highest electric bill has been $80.
“Everyone that’s going to retire or needs a vacation home should go to Ulrich,” she says, “Because they will get you exactly what you want.”
For Julie, living in her own cabin is a long time dream come true.
