Log Cabin Life

About the Show

Charlie Norman and his crew tear down log cabins, deconstructing them piece-by-piece, move them and eventually put them back together. If they don't rebuild them, then they use the rare wood from these historic structures to build something else.

Rural Vintage Cabin

Mike and his sister, Anita, want an antique log cabin built far from civilization, but the crew discovers that getting this job done means bringing in power where there is none and fighting massive lightning and hail storms. They also have to build a roof so steep that one false move means a fall that could break their bones -- or worse.

The build is so demanding that Charlie's old hand Troy quits, leaving the crew short-handed until Charlie's brother arrives to save the day.
