The Ulrich Story: How Craig Scott Built His Dream Garage with Ulrich

Updated: Mar 14

When it comes to owning a lake house, many people imagine peaceful days by the water, basking in the beauty of nature. But for Craig Scott, his lake house experience took an unexpected turn when he discovered that his small carport was no match for the challenges of keeping his boat and truck clean. This is where the story of Craig’s transformation begins, and the solution he found with Ulrich is nothing short of remarkable.


The Carport Dilemma

Craig’s lake house, located in Lake Bridgeport near Chico, Texas, was a slice of paradise. However, the serenity was disrupted by the daily battle against leaves and dirt. His carport couldn’t protect his boat and truck from the elements, leaving him searching for a better solution. But in rural Texas, finding contractors to handle framing and concrete work took a lot of work.

The Google Search That Changed Everything

Undeterred, Craig turned to Google for help. He searched for “garages” and stumbled upon Ulrich, a company renowned for its custom garage solutions. The decision to contact them was a game-changer.

Eager to explore this option further, Craig called Ulrich and found himself speaking to Dustin Young, an Ulrich garage consultant who turned out to be incredibly accommodating with his schedule. This was the beginning of a partnership that would see Craig’s vision come to life.

From Carport to Custom Garage

Initially, Craig planned to replace his 16×20 ft carport with a single-story garage of the same size. However, he also had another goal in mind – to park his Ford F150 inside the garage during inclement weather for extra protection. Realizing that his truck measured around 20 ft in length, Craig decided to increase the garage’s size to 16×25 ft to accommodate both his boat and truck comfortably.

A Smooth Transformation

Once the site was ready, construction progressed smoothly, except for a minor hiccup due to rain. What stood out to Craig was the professionalism and tidiness of the crews who poured the concrete slab and framed the structure. The attention to detail and precision were precisely what he had hoped for.

Turning Dreams into Reality

With Ulrich completing their part of the project, Craig went ahead and had electricity installed. His plans include insulating the building with spray foam and adding finishing touches like shelving and a designated space for his tools. He’s even planning to install shutters that match his house, creating a seamless and aesthetically pleasing look.
