Family Cabin on the Ranch

When C. B. Leos retired, he moved to a 175-acre ranch at the edge of the Texas hill country near Oglesby, Texas, to raise crops, Black Angus cattle, and a few longhorns for looks. The Leoses love the outdoors and wanted a cabin retreat to enjoy time outdoors with family. 

In a secluded area among giant live oaks, they cleared a spot overlooking a stock tank filled with catfish and brim. 

Then they shopped for a cabin shell to finish in a rustic style and as wide as could be manufactured. C. B. says, “Ulrich Barn Builders had quality buildings, good service, friendly people. We looked into the way their buildings were made and we decided that’s the building we wanted.”

The Ulrich sales associate guided the Leoses in choosing a 16×32 Pro Lofted Cabin Shell. C.B. was happily surprised that Ulrich beat their projected delivery date by almost two weeks. “My experience with Ulrich has been super. Everything has been done in a timely manner and in a very courteous, non-pushy atmosphere,” he says.

When the cabin arrived, C. B. measured the interior. He was impressed by how precisely square it was, even after its 80-mile ride down the highway and across pastures to its destination.

Below the chair rail and on the ceiling, the Leoses used rustic tin from an old hunting cabin on their property, with wood from the old cabin to line the top part of the walls. They wired the cabin to a generator and hung antlers over the porch.

When the grandchildren come for the night, they enjoy hearing coyotes and foxes barking, watching wildlife, and eating outdoors. Their Ulrich cabin is filling with memories as the whole Leos family enjoys the outdoors—and each other—there.
