Texas Built, Texas Proud: Why a Texas-built Cabin is Better

Texas Log Cabins

Why is it better to own a cabin built in Texas? We’ll get to a few of those reasons in a minute.

But first, let’s talk about the reasons it’s a no-brainer to have a cabin in Texas. Whether you currently reside in Texas or you like to visit, choosing a manufactured cabin in Texas has so many upsides, you’ll wonder why you don’t already have one (or two or three).

First of all, Texas is a great place to get away to and relax. From the Hill Country to the blackland prairies to the sandy beaches along the coast—Texas is huge with a wide variety of environments. So you can never get bored. Just drive a few hours for a change of scenery.

And because Texas is so large, you can plant cabins in a few spots and never feel like you’re vacationing in the same spot twice.

The temperate weather in Texas also means you won’t spend a fortune keeping the cabin warm or cool.

So why should you buy a Texas-built log cabin?

1. See the quality for yourself.

Because Leland’s Cabins is headquartered in Grandview, Texas, you can come see the quality of our work for yourself. A visit to our cabin showroom will make the selection process easier too because you won’t have to try to imagine your floor-plan options—you can actually take a tour through each cabin and examine the floor plans’ design and flow.

We have the largest cabin showroom in Texas, and you can walk through every one of the nine cabin models we offer.

So think about the alternative for a minute: Imagine that instead of walking through cabins to choose the one that best fits your needs, you have to look at a catalog. And you have to hope that the cabin pictured in the catalog is really what you’re going to end up getting at the end of the day.

Or worse, imagine there is no catalog. Instead, you’ll look at a 2D rendering of a floor plan with the hopes that your manufactured cabin’s dimensions are really what you need.

Buying a Texas-built modular log cabin means getting the cabin you want with the quality you deserve.

2. We take pride in keeping Texas-built a sign of expert craftsmanship.

Texas means something to us. Founded on an engineering spirit, Texas was a paradigm of independence, and its people continue to set industry standards and reach never-before-achieved heights. From Mary Kay Ash of Mary Kay Cosmetics, who revolutionized the cosmetic industry, to Denton A. Cooley, a cardiothoracic surgeon who performed the first artificial heart transplant, Texas is chock-full of people striving to be the best versions of themselves they can be.

And Leland’s Cabins is also aiming for greatness. We want to be your trusted prefab log cabin builder, and we’re building on a foundation of expert craftsmanship you can trust.

3. Texans know the value of vacationing.

As Texans, we’ve got standards for what qualifies as a vacation. We place a lot of value on getting away and recharging our batteries. So a cabin from Leland’s is a great place to start when building the perfect vacation.

A Texas cabin retreat makes a great getaway solution because you can recoup some of the costs of owning the cabin through vacation rental. Not only do the people of Texas understand the importance of vacationing, but those outside the state flock to Texas for vacation. When you’re not using your cabin, open it up to others to enjoy. And enjoy earnings on your investment by listing it on Airbnb or other vacation rental sites.

Whether you’re renting to other Texans or outsiders, your cabin will bring in a nice income stream that can cover the costs of maintenance, insurance, and taxes.

4. Buying Texas-built makes delivery simple.

You’re already living in Texas, so why not buy from a local company who will deliver your new cabin straight to your prepared site?

At Leland’s Cabins, we deliver your custom cabin to its new home. We’ll set it up and make sure everything is in working order. You might enjoy the whole process so much, you’ll follow in Dan and Kay Jupe’s footsteps and order a second cabin.

5. Everything is better in Texas.

Plenty of jobs with superior compensation, lower income taxes, entrepreneur-friendly people and economy, an independent spirit—there are a lot of reasons to live in Texas. You might even have your own list of reasons why you enjoy Texas so much.

You’re not the only one. More and more people are moving to Texas, but real estate is still reasonably priced. Research economist Dr. Ali Anari from the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University said land is cheaper in Texas than elsewhere, and the process of land acquisition is efficient. “From the time of getting a building permit right through to the construction of homes, Texas is much quicker than other states.”

So strike while the iron is hot. Buying a piece of land for your cabin is a smart investment.
