It's not too often that your house isn't where you left it. But that was the case for Josie-Anne Pilotte, who spent three weeks building a cabin in the Yukon. Earlier this month, Pilotte headed to the building site to transfer the 200-square-foot cabin to her friends' property, the Whitehorse Daily Star reports; the cabin had been on pallets so it could be moved. It seems someone else took care of that, CBC reports.

Instead of finding the cabin, "we found a pair of gloves, a crowbar, and they left the windows behind," Pilotte says. They also found the insulation and roofing supplies that had previously been inside the cabin, Pilotte notes. She arrived to discover the missing cabin about two weeks ago, but it's still a mystery who took it. "I went berserk," she notes. "I lost it." She reported the situation to the police, who are looking into matters. (Read more Yukon stories.)
