Chris Dorsey, world-class sportsman and author, and his wife Amy, are building the Ultimate Sportsman's Lodge in Colorado, the place to be if you love the outdoors. Building the lodge has many challenges -- rain, equipment failing and a tight schedule.
With a big dream, a tight schedule and crushing weather putting the pressure on, Greg Krom and his team have their work cut out for them to complete the excavation and get these rooms completed. Then the attention is shifted to the outdoor kitchen.
The sub floor is in, and the timbers are up, but the Colorado monsoons are in full force, causing complications and delays. Walls and roof have to go up before the snow comes, and Greg Krom and his team are working with unfamiliar building elements.
The Ultimate Sportsman's Lodge is weathered in, and blue skies are overhead. However, the electrical install turns out to be more complicated than previously thought. The crew does have some sucess by finishing the Locker Room.
With ninety days to finish the build, freezing weather and other dangers on site hinder the crew to the point of work stoppage. When the weather breaks, they are finally able to install the siding and start work on the 350,000 BTU fire pit.
The deadline looms closer, and winter weather continues to be an issue for the crew. And with a dozen projects going on at once, it will require some complicated choreography from Greg and Rebecca to keep the crews from stepping all over each other.
The crew rushes to complete the landscaping and flooring as deadlines rapidly approach. The big push is to finish the Trophy Room, which is the center of the house for Chris.
It's been six months since the Dorsey's broke ground on the Ultimate Sportsman's Lodge. There's still a long punch to knock out before the lodge is finished, and moving day is right around the corner.
