What's The New Building On Sarah Palin's Property?

Palin residence grows

A big new building (the one on the right) at the Palin residence in Wasilla is the subject of much speculation, says The New York Times:

Various sources have said the project includes a television studio... apartments for Mr. Palin or the Palins’ older children...and a well-appointed office for Ms. Palin.

Bloggers have speculated that the big double garage doors will allow clearance for Mr. Palin’s Piper Cub airplane and maybe his snowmobiles. Mr. Palin said the space was a “big shop for Trig and Tripp to play in, and for Piper."

Our guesses:

  • Eva: As a precaution, she built a playroom to accommodate all kids, grandkids, future kids, and future grandkids.
  • Intern Siri: Vacation home. She goes very, very slightly north for the summer.
  • Peter: It's a library. Remember she said she read all of 'em?
  • Ian: She just wanted a house she could see from her house.

What do you think it is?
