Cabin Porch the Perfect End To the Day

Les and Cindy Yoakum were burning a brush pile on their land in rural west Texas. Noticing the view, they thought it would be neat to have a cabin with a porch. As they looked into log cabin kits, they found Ulrich Log Cabins online.

Cindy says, “They had the best website, and they had the best cabins going, and they were near enough we could drive there.”  As a general contractor for 49 years, Les wanted to see how Ulrich cabins were built. He was impressed by the solid framing. 

Cindy and Les did not want to cut down any of their trees to bring the cabin in, so they chose a 16×40 cabin. The original floor plan had two bedrooms, but they put a loft over the kitchen and eliminated the second bedroom. This meant the cabin was small enough it could be brought in between their trees. Cindy says, “It’s a good weekend size, and it’s functional.” 

Ulrich Log Cabins are very customizable. Cindy liked having so many options, with choices of floor plan, interior finishes, wood stains, lighting, and more. Working with cabin designer Brian, she says, the Yoakums got exactly what they wanted. 

Les was happy to buy the cabin ready-built from Ulrich Log Cabins because it was less expensive than he could build it himself. 

The Yoakums added decorative stone to the cabin’s foundation, as well as concrete walks. They furnished the cabin with rustic furniture. Their grandchildren enjoy sleeping in the loft over the kitchen.  

The cabin porch faces west, overlooking a small pond. Les and Cindy love to sit on the porch, drinking sweet tea, watching the sunset, and listening to the coyotes and frogs—the perfect way to end their day.
