    Who needs a $3 mil cabin they only visit here and there? Seems like a waste of construction and raw materials to just sit there unused, and now all of those materials and toxic fumes just went up in smoke. I would laugh if it wasn’t fully insured.

    It’s NOT a cabin! It’s a 3 million dollar mansion. My whole house could have fit in the living room. To my way of thinking a “cabin” is a one-room structure that is similar to a studio apartment inside, but maybe with a loft for sleeping. Come on, let’s have accurate reporting, please.
