Field Trip to McGregor

Mark and I took advantage of a day off  and decided to take ourselves on a field trip up to McGregor, TX where Derksen Portable Buildings are constructed.  We toured the Derksen facility and watched as buildings were framed, sided, painted and finished out.  Because we’ve been impressed with the overall quality of the Derksen buildings, we weren’t surprised to find the Derksen facility clean, organized and extremely busy.  In the photo above, Mark is standing outside a cabin painted in one of Derksen’s new color options.  The buyers of this cabin chose to have the electric package installed as well as an air conditioner.  As you can see, we interrupted the carpenter as he was finishing up the porch.

Here are a couple pictures taken inside of the Derksen facility.  The buildings pretty much go from frame to finish in here.  It was fun to walk through and see all the different options people had chosen for their buildings.

I thought this was a charming cottage shed.  It features a new style door with small transom windows and a fabulous dormer window above the doors to let in extra natural lighting.

I’m fascinated by the tiny-house movement and have often thought a Derksen cabin would make a good tiny house shell.   Turns out there are a lot of folks thinking the same thing.  Derksen can frame out walls, add electric and A/C, frame for a commode and shower, spray in insulation, and finish walls and ceilings.  Pretty impressive.

Many thanks go out to Dave for showing us around the facility.  W had a great time and feel like we know a lot more about how the buildings are constructed and all the options our customers have in designing their own storage shed, cabin or barn.
