The actor, comedian and singer is trading his microphone for a tool belt and building his dream luxury riverfront cabin complete with its own stage for performing.

The Rogue's Lair

Jim Belushi buys an old Elk's Lodge property along the Rogue River outside Medford, Oregon. Intended to be a getaway for the guys called the 'Rogue's Lair", his wife, Jenny, wants nothing to do with the project, at first! Right out of the gate, snags hold up construction. Flood plain restrictions and county code requirements force changes to the design, slowing things up and adding more to the cost.
