Brothers Andrew and Kevin have always wanted to combine their two favorite cottage activities, watersports and relaxing in deck chairs. The boys concoct a one-of-a-kind creation, the Chair-Ski -- a deck chair on water skis that can be towed behind a motorboat. Join the boys on as they embark on their wackiest and wettest adventure yet!
Inspired by the swim-up bars at Caribbean resorts, brothers Andrew and Kevin set out to construct one of their own at their lakeside cottage property. The bar boasts underwater seating, a floating pool table and a gleaming bartop made entirely out of nickels.
Brothers Andrew and Kevin unleash their inner eight-year-olds to create a kid-friendly cottage play area, not fully realizing they're actually making one for themselves. The boys hurl themselves headlong into slack lines, ziplines, teeter-totters and a man-sized version of a baby bouncer to end up making the ultimate playground.
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 heart of the brothers' cottage has always been the fire pit, where they've enjoyed many good times with their friends and family. The guys set their imaginations ablaze and create a space fit for the ultimate cottage, with log chaise lounges and suspended fire pits.
Kevin and Andrew design and build the ultimate hot tub, complete with trolling motor and cooler. Andrew pushes his brother to make the hot tub amphibious, so they can float out onto the lake in style to view the stars. With their life jackets and frosty drinks on board, the boys set sail for the adventure of a lifetime.
It's going to be a high-stakes weekend as the brothers and their engineer pal Brian go all in to turn their quaint family retreat into the Cottage Casino. A gambling den would never pass the 'Mom Test," so it should be discreetly hidden away until their high-roller friends come calling. To accomplish this sleight-of-hand, the guys convert the furniture and knick-knacks into cleverly disguised gaming tables, beer dispensers and humidors.
Last year, the brothers and their engineer pal Brian built a playground at the cottage for their kids, but it turned out unsafe, unattractive and unused. With pride on the line, they're determined to redeem themselves this time around by tackling the quintessential kids project: a tree fort, complete with crow's nest, bridge and slide.
Football season is in full swing, and the brothers have big plans for the season-ending showdown. With a sizable contingent of friends geared up for a tailgate party, the race is on to create the Ultimate Football Lounge -- an outdoor space protected from the elements with comfy insulated sofas, motorized beer coolers, gridiron challenges and enough food to fill a stadium.
Warmer days and cold nights bring Andrew and Kevin to the cottage with sweet dreams on their minds and maple syrup supplies in their hands. Having always wanted to join in this quintessential springtime harvest, the brothers are armed with ambition but not a lot more. Luckily, their trusted engineer pal Brian is along to help them create the Ultimate Breakfast Bar with a homemade sap evaporator.
A weekend winter getaway has been Andrew and Kevin's cottage tradition for a long time. This year, the brothers decide to build the Ultimate Hockey Rink to help their friends beat the winter blues. Complete with rinkside food and drinks, a lawnmower-turned-Zamboni and their very own trophy, the Manly Cup, this promises to be a spirited game that rivals the pros in entertainment value.
The lake at the cottage is not open for winter fishing, so Andrew and Kevin decide to build a mobile ice fishing shack they can haul into the middle of nearby frozen lake. Come along for the ride as the brothers and their engineer pal Brian design and build a cozy, ultra-portable ice fishing hut that is a cinch to set up and take down.
With Kevin's loud snoring nearly driving his brother to silence him for good, the boys decide that perhaps it's finally time to try out some alternative sleeping arrangements at their lakeside cottage. It's the middle of winter, so the boys dream up an igloo on the lake with of all the amenities of a luxury boutique hotel, like a fire pit and ice hockey table.
