A Home in the Country for $55,000

Bobby and Rosemarie wanted a home in the country to retire to — without spending a fortune. Simple, right? Just get a mobile home. But the Proctors didn’t want a mobile home. Rosemarie had very specific ideas about the design and layout of their home. A generic mobile home was not going to cut it.

When the Proctors saw an Ulrich cabin shell on the internet, they were immediately interested. One of our internet sales consultants answered all their questions. The Proctors were impressed by our Premier Gable Cabin Shell. Not only was it incredibly sturdy, but it had an attractive roof pitch that would lend itself perfectly to a cathedral ceiling.

The Proctors sold their suburban home and bought some rural property. After delivery, Bobby quickly set to work finishing out the interior. He tackled most of the finish out work himself, outsourcing the electrical and plumbing.

The 16 x 52 ft Ulrich cabin shell has a bedroom and bathroom at each end. The center of the cabin spreads out into an open kitchen / living area. We installed a full length porch along the front — perfect for watching an early morning sunrise or sipping an iced tea in the afternoon.

There’s one more twist to the story. Rosemarie’s hobby is sewing, but Bobby doesn’t like having the sewing mess in the house. The solution was a 12 x 12 ft “She Shed”. We positioned the Ulrich Premier Utility Shed adjacent to their cabin. It has an A/C, TV, and all of Rosemarie’s sewing supplies.

The Proctors are extremely pleased with the project. They spent less than $55,000, including their home, hobby shed, and plot of land. They now have a home in the country, customized to their liking. Its solid, its pretty, and it’s very affordable.
