I lucked out as this is the only finished out cabin on their lot or for that matter in their current inventory. The guy was still putting the finishing touches on it and invited me to tour it.

to the right of the cabin. That is where the water heater goes.

I know there are many DIY (do it yourselfers) out there who are very handy and knowledgeable about construction and have the tools necessary to go about undertaking a project of this magnitude. Alas, that is not the case at least for me.
It is a beautiful one bedroom cabin with a large closet, a decent size living room, small kitchen, and full size bathroom.
It is 16 x 32 and sells for $35,995.00 while I know that is not cheap...it is very doable perhaps even more so if you go through a bank or lending institution and get a mortgage loan. You would do away with the $9,998.75 security deposit Derksen requires and get a more favorable interest rate thus a lower monthly payment depending on the length of time you choose to repay your loan.
It comes fully insulated, is wired for electricity, plumbing, has an A/C unit in the living room, ceiling fans, decorative lighting, flooring, water heater and a lot of other things that I am probably leaving out.

I went to talk to the lady who operates the lot and whom I believe is the wife of the owner. She was on the phone to a very interested customer...that is how I found out the details of this new line of cabins. I got a business card and was planning on contacting her later but I misplaced her card!
I do recall her name is Leah. As soon as I find her card, I will update this post. Mention my blog and you will get a discount of....absolutely nothing....jajajaja! Maybe I should have a talk with her as all the Derksen posts garnish a decent number of readers and e-mails. In particular the solar cabin post http://terlinguadreams.blogspot.com/2013/06/a-solar-cabin.html
If you are not handy like myself or just want to avoid the hassle of hiring someone to finish out your cabin...this is certainly an option you could consider.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
