The Builders

Chuck Gerwig, Lee Raymond and Jim Wagner set out to build three cabins in remote areas of the Alaskan Frontier. They are totally off the grid and ready to embark on an extremely labor intensive adventure. The three men decide to risk it all to carve out their homes in some of the most unforgiving wilderness on the planet.

When winter arrives, the race will be over. To say it's a challenge is an understatement. From lakes, to glaciers, to areas savaged by fire, nobody will be immune from Alaska's hostile nature. You won't believe what the men have to endure. Watch as their family and friends rally around their dream, and how one builder must move forward after an extreme loss.
