This little cabin belonged to one of the richest men in the world (he was in the top ten when he passed away a few years ago).
One day as we were building this cabin he stepped out of his huge brick mansion which was nearby and he came over to pay us a visit. This would be his office and retreat once we finished it. He told me that he would love to live in this cabin but that his wife’s tastes ran the opposite direction.
I’ll always remember that encounter as I realized there is something about a well built cabin that satisfies the soul of rich and poor alike.
