The three build teams kick off their builds in unique, remote Alaskan settings. Adam Tschappat and his family begin building a Family Legacy cabin in the Wrangell Mountains. Mike Williams and his family begin building a guest cabin in Eagle Song, near Mt. Susitna. And Steve Box and his builder friends, Dave Bartlett and Hans Moser, begin an Island Getaway on Shelter Island, near Juneau.
Three teams continue their builds in unique, remote Alaskan settings. Adam Tschappat and his family stake out the area for their Family Legacy cabin in the Wrangell Mountains. Mike Williams and his daughter, Meghan, finally make it off Alaska's frozen highway, only to have their build stuck in neutral in Eagle Song. Dave and Hans are able to complete their 20 supply runs and dig holes for the foundation for the Island Getaway build on Shelter Island.
Alaskan builder Adam Tschappat's team is cut in half due to volunteer firefighter duties delaying his Family Legacy cabin build in the Wrangell Mountains. Mike Williams is facing a 100 degree change in temperature that is forcing him to focus on the farm and not the build in Eagle Song. Dave and Hans face rough seas, while some bad math pushes them further behind schedule on the Island Getaway build on Shelter Island.
Builder Adam Tschappat and his brothers deal with record-breaking spring temperatures at their build site in the Wrangell Mountains. Mike Williams is keeping one eye on his crops and the other on his build forcing him to look the other way when it comes to code on his Guest Cabin in Eagle Song. Dave and Hans nearly get stranded due to receding tides at the Island Getaway build on Shelter Island.
Builder Mike Williams is in a mad scramble to save his peonies from dying, sending his crew into high gear in Eagle Song. Dave and Hans's 50 thousand pounds of material make it to shore unharmed at their Island Getaway build on Shelter Island. Builder Adam Tschappat does some precision work from 2 logs to 12 logs high for his Family Legacy cabin in the Wrangell Mountains.
Builder Mike Williams and his team gain some ground, but can they keep it while laying plywood over the cabin's foundation in Eagle Song? Dave and Hans try and get reacquainted with their build and it reminds them how little time and how much work they have left on Shelter Island. Builder Adam Tschappat comes face to face with his biggest fear for his cabin's success in the Wrangell Mountains.
Builder Mike Williams' son Cody comes up with a fix for their pressure washer problem in order to peel the logs for their cabin build in Eagle Song. Dave and Hans work through extreme weather fluctuations and muscle heavy beams in place for the second floor on their cabin build on Shelter Island. Builder Adam Tschappat is a bag short of cement to complete the foundation for his cabin and his team worries as he is nowhere to be found in the Wrangell Mountains.
Builder Mike Williams gets all 45 of his logs peeled and starts to stack and insulate his cabin in Eagle Song. Builders Dave and Hans deal with dangerous heavy fog on their boat journey to Shelter island and struggle to lift heavy logs with limited help. Builder Adam Tschappat saves the day with an extra bag of cement and his team prepare the location and materials needed for the cabin's outhouse in the Wrangell Mountains.
Builder Mike Williams falls further behind schedule due to wet weather and unforseen obstacles in Eagle Song. On Shelter Island, builders Dave Bartlett and Hans Moser get a surprise visit and much needed help to finish the cabin, but they still need to make a trip to town in order to complete the build. Builder Adam Tschappat disassembles his cabin at the log yard and begins transporting it to his build site in the Wrangell Mountains.
On Shelter Island, Dave Bartlett and Hans Moser have not one, but two 700-hundred pound ridgepoles to set. Over at EagleSong, running out of weatherproofing, and a last minute design change, forces Mike Williams to forge ahead in dodgy weather. For builder Adam Tschappat, a faster pace comes to a screeching halt when two crucial logs go missing at his build site in McCarthy.
It's do or die time for all of the builders. The tides become the ultimate decider for Dave, Hans, and Steve, and send Steve to the workshop. For builder Adam and his family, the weather can't dampen their excitement as they finish their legacy cabin build. Over at EagleSong, Mike is racing the first snowfall, can the family that builds together, stay together?
