After Dave and Jane Slater retired, they looked for a hideaway, a vacation spot. They found 36 acres of land near Milano, Texas and wanted a secluded cabin to put on it.
The Slaters’ wanted a well-built cabin for themselves, their children, and their future grandchildren. They found Ulrich Log Cabins online. When they toured the Cleburne factory, they could see the quality of the cabin construction. It was exactly what they wanted. With the type of materials used, build quality, and Ulrich craftmanship, Dave says, “It’s the finest cabin I’ve been able to find out on the market.”
Starting with a 16×36 Park model, the Slaters modified the cabin plans to suit their needs. They wanted a loft for extra space for children to sleep in. They also wanted more counter space in the kitchen and a bigger shower and bathroom.
Their site was remote and hard to reach, but “Ulrich did what they said they were going to do. They did it on time, and every component of it was very professional,” Dave says.
Visiting their cabin feels like camping—but with all the amenities. “It’s completely relaxing,” Jane says. “You can feel your blood pressure lower as soon as you get here.” The Slaters spend their time encouraging native plants and trees to grow on their land.
“We’ve enjoyed it more than we ever expected,” Jane says. “We can’t go a week without coming out here.”
Dave loves their cozy and peaceful cabin too. “It’s the smartest thing we’ve ever done,” he says. “It’s exactly what we wanted.”
