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 crew builds a rustic new home for a young married couple at the top of a mountain, but they discover that getting their equipment up the treacherous roads is as difficult as building the cabin itself. 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.
The crew takes on its biggest job ever when they attempt to tear down a massive barn owned by an Army veteran and his family, who love the old barn but realize that its glory days have long since passed. The job requires Charlie to do some high-wire acrobatics, which scares the daylights out of the crew.
Charlie discovers a mother lode of historic beams inside a dilapidated barn in Pennsylvania. The barn's owner needs the building torn down because it is in danger of collapsing onto a major roadway. During the job, the crew quickly discovers getting to the wooden gold means doing some of the most dangerous work they've ever attempted.
Charlie and the crew travel deep into the backwoods of Tennessee mountain country to tear down an American Revolution-era log cabin. Then, Charlie goes in search of historic wood, visiting an old family friend in Pennsylvania Amish country. Finally, the crew creates an ingenious way to fix a hole in the stonewall of a cabin's bathroom.
Charlie and the crew revisit a massive log cabin vacation home they built to replace a rotting timber that's driving the homeowner crazy. Next, Charlie and his wife Beth visit a stunning wedding reception cabin retreat, one that he and his crew are particularly proud of building. And finally, Charlie and the crew create a gorgeous cabin-like television screening room for one of Charlie's old college buddies and his wife.
