Plot Synopsis

RESTORATION WILD is a one-hour reality series that follows Jay Chaikin and his crew of expert builders and designers, as they track down and repurpose vintage structures and relics. The American landscape is dotted with natural relics of all shapes and sizes -- from fallen trees and decrepit barns to abandoned railroad cars -- that were once forgotten by time but begging to be rediscovered. Now, in this series, Chaikin and his team upcycle these structures into one-of-a-kind living spaces and create environments that look as if they were placed there by nature. Animal Planet aired the pilot episode of this series -- using the title RENOVATION WILD -- on Friday, February 6, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT, and debuted the official series premiere nine months later on Friday, November 6, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT. In the premiere episode, Chaikin and his RESTORATION WILD crew head to a trout farm in North Carolina where they're tasked with creating a rustic retreat that overlooks a breathtakingly beautiful waterfall. The catch: the building must flow seamlessly with the land and appear to be a century old. With limited resources, Chaikin looks to the land for help. Additional locations and projects for the rest of the season include: full transformation of a Silo bar at Chanteclaire Farms in Friendsville, MD; restoration of an original train car (circa 1800) at Aw Shucks Farm in Monroe, NC; construction of a full-scale brewery shop at Buckley's Mountainside Canoe and Brew in Mount Pleasant, MI; renovation of a 1940s bus in the Rocky Mountains into a one-of-a-kind guesthouse; and much more.
