DESCRIPTION:
(from National Geographic Channel's press release, December 2013) Designer Paul DiMeo (@Paul_DiMeo) became known for building the impossible over nine seasons on "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." Now he's ready for perhaps the most rugged construction show ever - using extreme architectural engineering to create incredible, perhaps improbable, wilderness cabin retreats in America's last frontiers. Premiering Tuesday, Jan. 14, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, National Geographic Channel goes off the map to kick off its first do-it-yourself series, Building Wild. Paulie, as he is known, has partnered with woodsman and master fabricator Pat "Tuffy" Bakaitis on a cabin design and construction business called Cabin Kings. These "Cabin Kings" are construction's odd couple: Paulie is a city boy at heart and Tuffy is a gruff, logical woodsman who has never heard of Starbucks. But together, this duo creates unbelievable wilderness getaways, transforming discarded materials into fabulous contraptions and overcoming outrageous building challenges along the way.
