Why not have Thanksgiving in the woods?

What does a “normal” Thanksgiving look and feel like to you? Family and friends gathered around your kitchen table enjoying pumpkin pie while the Macy’s Thanksgiving day parade, or your favorite football team plays in the background on the big screen? Or is it a little more stressful? Rather than filling your mind and heart with thoughts of thankfulness, you find your mind racing - thinking about how long the turkey needs to be in the oven, Black Friday deals, or the fact that your holiday season to-do list keeps getting longer by the day. Whatever your Thanksgiving normal [...]

Unlikely Benefits of Owning a Small-Size Cabin

While it goes without saying here in the Lone Star State that everything is bigger in Texas, it doesn’t mean that bigger is always better. When it comes to Leland’s small-size prefab cabins, there are some wonderful benefits to going for a slimmed-down style. An easy perk to point to is cost efficiency. Buying one of the small premade cabins or tiny homes like The Stag goes easy on the wallet, which leaves you with more money in the bank each month. When your home costs less than a pickup truck or SUV, you know you can sleep peacefully at [...]

Client Testimonial 2: Leland’s Builds a Cabin for a Texas School

In working to create an outdoor learning center with All Saints Episcopal School in Tyler, Texas, it was clear that we couldn’t think about the outdoor areas as separate from the indoor ones. Both were a top priority, and the two needed to work in harmony. All Saints partnered with Leland’s to build a learning center that took advantage of the 150-acre campus and all the trees, trails, and wildlife on it. Listening to Head of School Mike Cobb’s vision for the learning center, we were able to work together to maximize the best in what our Texas pre-built [...]

Client Testimonial: Lisa and Chuck Forman

When Leland’s Cabins customers Lisa and Chuck Forman moved back to the United States after working overseas, they decided to settle down in Spur, Texas, a blink-and-you-miss-it town of just over a thousand people located east of Lubbock. They were curious about tiny houses, and when they discovered Spur, they were excited by what they read. The diminutive town was described as big on charm and friendliness, and right away they felt welcome. As the couple visited Spur, they met one of our Leland’s representatives who showed them a handful of our manufactured log cabin homes in town. The couple liked [...]

Client Testimonial: Leland’s Builds a Cabin for a Texas School

https://player.vimeo.com/video/291191563 We talk a lot about our cabins serving as retreats, as destinations for escaping the daily grind of the working world and embracing the quiet of nature. Leland’s Cabins recently was given an opportunity to build a forest hideaway not for a family, but for a local school. All Saints Episcopal School in Tyler, Texas, encourages its students to engage in outdoor learning by exploring the forest and wildlife that exist on its 150-acre campus. Outdoor learning has been shown to decrease students’ stress levels while at the same time increase their motivation. And for All Saints, [...]

The Benefits of Having a Local Craftsman Build Your Log Cabin

We’ve all heard the mantra to “shop local,” but what does that mean when it comes to modular cabins? Here at Leland’s Cabins, we embrace that local perspective every day and with every member of our Leland’s family. Texas log cabins are a distinct style. We’re proud of the craftsmanship that goes into each of our nine cabin models. And we’re proud of the craftsmen who build them, too. Why? Because they’re not living on the other side of the world when they pick up a hammer and start to construct one of our prefab log cabins. They’re living [...]

Things to Consider When Choosing Land for Your Prefab Cabin

Things to Consider When Choosing Land for Your Prefab Cabin Location, location, location. That’s the old adage in real estate, and it typically refers to neighborhoods with good schools and access to shopping. But when it comes to Texas log cabins, location is a whole ’nother kettle of fish — ideally caught with your own rod in a stream or pond nearby. When you’re making plans for your Leland’s Cabins home, there are lots of things to consider. From the floorplan to the wooden walls, the kitchen cabinets to the cedar tub, you have scores of decisions to make. [...]

Planning a Successful Fall Hunting Trip in Texas

Hunting Trips Starting your day out sitting on the cool ground in the woods, just as the sun is coming up, is less an exercise in patience and more a moment of peaceful anticipation. You’re there waiting for the sun to clear the horizon and the game to come wandering your way. You can almost taste the sausage as you sit there, imaging the deer you’re going to get this year. Most of your hunting trips start and end the same way: You begin anticipating the next year’s trip at the end of this year’s. As your trip comes [...]
