Three-time Olympic medalist Summer Sanders and her husband, World Cup and Olympic skier Erik Schlopy, need a comfy place to crash at the end of the day with their active kids, Skye and Spider. The Mega Dens team goes for the gold by unrocking a rustic fireplace in favor of sleek limestone tile and replacing too-small windows with bold French doors that maximize the mountain view outside their home. Erik gets the chance to show off his considerable DIY experience, but it's a whole new sport for Summer, who jumps in headfirst and makes a splash with everything from a rotary hammer to a compound miter saw. Together, they help build their own custom entertainment center, while the kids do a surprise painting for mom and dad. Anitra and her crew rehab vintage oil cans and washtubs into cabin-chic lighting fixtures, piece together a folk-art American flag out of old barn wood and even repair Summer's broken gold medal from the 1992 Olympics.
