DESTINATION AMERICA TAKES LOG CABINS TO THE EXTREME WITH THE U.S. PREMIERE OF "TIMBER KINGS"

(Silver Spring, MD) - This March, Destination America introduces viewers to home building like it's never been seen before, showcasing massive, multi-million-dollar log mansions in the all-new series TIMBER KINGS. Follow the highly skilled craftsmen of Pioneer Log Homes as they artfully construct jaw dropping "log mahals". The one-of-a-kind dream dwellings are made entirely from enormous trees that have been honed to perfection to give their clients' homes the perfect balance of eye-catching beauty and innovative installation. These grand abodes are not your typical "Lincoln Log" cabins but amazing works of art that can be grueling and dangerous to build. Tune-in to the U.S. premiere of TIMBER KINGS on Destination America, Saturday March 8 at 10pm EST to watch this crew of masterful log smiths craft the most difficult and elaborate log houses while navigating tough terrain, rough elements and, at times, difficult clients.

"Log cabins are a part of the true American culture, and TIMBER KINGS allows viewers to fantasize about one day owning their own giant log castle - the ultimate dream home," said Marc Etkind, general manager of Destination America. "These homes are reminiscent of the traditional early log cabins and TIMBER KINGS highlights the incredible artistry and craftsmanship of these truly amazing builders."

In addition to spotlighting some of the most stunning log cabins ever imagined, TIMBER KINGS reveals the labor-intensive process that these rugged builders undergo to achieve their clients' vision, often working against tight deadlines and intense pressure in order to please elite clientele. The designers from Pioneer Log Homes make each cabin on site in their log yard, where they assemble every piece of wood by hand. The homes are then dismantled and transported to their final destination to be reassembled along with the finishing touches, including windows, doors, cabinetry, and more. At times, it can be a very dangerous job as the crew moves 2,000-pound logs in extreme conditions to remote locations.

The first three episode descriptions include:

Truck Overboard Premieres Saturday, March 8 at 10pm

In the premiere episode builder Joel Roorda wrecks an 18-wheeler during a winter build while two other members of the crew sell a thousand year old tree to an eccentric Arkansas millionaire.

Gone Fishing Premieres Saturday, March 15 at 10pm

Beat Schwaller's Arkansas house build is in trouble when delivery trucks arrive out of order, and Bryan Reid Jr. remodels a local bar for a penny-pinching friend.

Heir Apparent Premieres Saturday, March 22 at 10pm

Bryan Jr. takes his son to Missouri hoping to assemble a house themselves, while Beat builds a Western-style saloon for a meatball millionaire and his racecar-driving girlfriend.

TIMBER KINGS is produced for Destination America by Paperny Entertainment with Adam Wilkenfeld, David Paperny, Cal Shumiatcher and Audrey Mehler as executive producers. For Destination America, Cathy Garland is executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, Marc Etkind is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is group president of Investigation Discovery, Destination America, and Military Channel.
