Russell and Robyn Lamb from Whitesboro, Texas built a house which burned when it was struck by lightning. Stuck in a rental house in town, they wanted to get back out to their country property. They considered living in an RV, but when Russell saw an ad for Ulrich Lifestyle, he contacted Ulrich Designer Greg Stubbs about a tiny home.
As Russell saw the details of the sturdy construction of Ulrich Lifestyle buildings, he was impressed. “From the time I contacted them, they were helpful,” Russell says. He was worried about needing to take out fences and cut down mature trees to get a building onto his property. He was relieved to find that we had an affordable onsite build option. In three days the Ulrich crew had built the shed between the trees, leaving behind a painted, trimmed building, complete with window boxes.
While they wanted a tiny home, the Lambs still needed space for a master suite, open living room and kitchen, and laundry room. A 16×44 Retreat was just the right size for their needs. They added transom windows over the french doors for more natural light.
The Lambs added shiplap to the walls, a stained wood ceiling, wood floors, and a full-sized kitchen. Robyn decorated their tiny home beautifully with warm farmhouse décor. A deck in front adds to their living space.
Though they may eventually build a bigger house and their Ulrich Lifestyle tiny home will become the guest house, for the time being, “It’s perfectly comfortable to come home to,” Russell says. “It feels like home.”
