The Ultimate Fishing Boat

Never again will brothers Andrew and Kevin find themselves at the perfect remote fishing spot without a boat. This weekend, they're creating their own boat by converting the truck cap on the back of their pickup into a vessel. Hopefully, their wacky idea holds water, or else they'll be swimming with the fishes instead of catching them.

The Ultimate Workshop

Necessity is the brother of all invention and there's nothing that brothers Andrew and Kevin need more than a workshop at their lakeside property.

Ultimate Swim Raft

Swimming in the lake is an essential part of the lake experience but the brothers need a swim raft…, the ultimate swim raft. Andrew and Kevin retreat to the drawing board eager to fix the situation. They quickly come to the conclusion that their new swim raft will need to be self-propelled so that it can be moored both at the shore as well as in the middle of the lake where the swimming is prime. Together with their engineer pal Walker, the boys decide to build the Ultimate Swim Raft, complete with benches, a cedar pergola, a hammock, a solar-powered motor, a trap-door cooler, a retractable anchor.

Ultimate Smokehouse

The cabin of brothers Andrew and Kevin lacks a 'man'tuary: a place to sit, watch fire cook meat, drink liquids that burn your belly, and generally look busy while doing next to nothing. While sweeping the chimney in preparation for the winter in between sips of bourbon and nibbles of smoked salmon, inspiration hits the boys — what if they combine a smoke shack with a bourbon bar? The smoker is the perfect 'smoke screen' that will allow the bros to hit the bar while their wives think they are working hard on preparing food for dinner.

The Browling Alley

Unable to decide whether to build a new bowling alley or a new dock for their lake property, brothers Andrew and Kevin decide to do both, combining two ideas into one: the Browling Alley is a floating wooden boat dock that will also double as a ten-pin bowling lane, complete with gutters, a mechanical pinsetter and a ball return system. But will the bros turn out to be the kingpins of the lake or just pinheads?

The Ultimate Floating Sauna

The chilly weather at their lakeside property has brothers Andrew and Kevin opening their minds and pores to the ceremony of sweat that is the sauna. It's not just going to be any old sauna – not when Andrew insists that the key to a truly amazing sauna is the ability to jump from the heat directly into the cold lake. They conclude that the only sensible thing to do is to make a sauna with immediate access to the deepest, coldest parts of the lake – the Ultimate Floating Sauna.
