Plot Synopsis

BUILDING ALASKA follows men who set out to build cabins in remote areas of The Last Frontier over the course of a single season of this series. Each 30-minute episode features a different stage of construction, including every step from the demolition of abandoned cabins and digging foundations to completing the framing and rough plumbing to the final finishing touches. In Season 1, hunting and fishing guide Bob May embarked on a five-month project to build the perfect hunting lodge in the great outdoors on a remote island in southern Alaska. Bob, his son, and team of experts battled the elements and personal challenges as they made his dream home a reality -- even though they had to adapt to inferior lumber, changing weather conditions and an 11-foot brown bear that all caused havoc on the build site.
BUILDING ALASKA returned for its second season on Sunday, January 5, 2014 at 10pm ET/7pm PT on DIY Network, as the new season followed three men who set out to build three cabins in remote areas of the Alaskan Frontier, constructing cabins that need to hold up in some of the most harsh conditions in the world. The second season followed professional builders Lee Raymond, Jim Wagner and Chuck Gerwig, as they led their construction teams.
