Custom Garage Overlooking Lake Whitney

Harvey Ackerman is a long-time pilot and electrical engineer. At 71 years old, he’s still inventing electrical devices.

Harvey needed a space to work on his electrical inventions, and at the recommendation of a friend, stopped in at our sales office in Cleburne. He met with Dustin, our custom garage sales consultant, and discussed what he wanted in his dream workshop.

Harvey’s property is high on the bluffs of Lake Whitney. On a clear day, you can see the far shoreline of the lake five miles away. With that in mind, Harvey designed his custom garage to face the lake.

The property slopes significantly, so we built a covered walkway that allows Harvey to access the side door of his building without using any steps. This spring, Harvey plans to add electrical, plumbing, insulation, and high-grade plywood to finish out his workshop.

Currently, he’s using his garage to assemble his own airplane. It’s a small two-seater that will be both tough and fast when’s he’s finished.

Harvey enjoyed working with Dustin and the team at Ulrich. He says the project was completed on time and on budget.

“Anyone wanting to have a custom or a standard building put on their property, I would highly recommend Ulrich as a contractor,” he says.
