I led the team that built this cabin for a man who at the time was one of the richest men in the world. (it now belongs to Donald Trump)
The man who had us build the cabin once told me that if he had it his way that this cabin would be his only home.
Isn’t it interesting how even the very wealthy seek to have a modest handmade home?… a simple cabin in the woods?
A home that almost any of us can have if we put out the effort.
The materials for this cabin would likely cost close to that of a new super-duty pickup truck today.
Of course it would take a lot of labor and “learning” to build one like this.
That’s a lot of weekends and days off from the job… would it be worth it?
After all, it would be so much easier to pay someone else to build it.
But that, would be expensive.
So most people play the lottery and avoid the hammer.
And their dream cabin, remains a dream.
