Road Trip U.S.A.

On their cross-country road trip to raise money for their community, the RENOgades encounter all sorts of new experiences, like learning how to work a navigational system and driving a car for the first time.

California Dreamin'

The Amish RENOgades spent most of their lives in their Amish community in Holmes County, Ohio, the largest Amish settlement in the United States. On their trip, they are excited to visit big cities they have never seen before, like Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Chicago.

Surf's Up

During their stay on the West Coast, Robert and Albert take some time to visit the ocean. Here's a behind-the-scenes look at them taking a surfing lesson.

Cozy Kitchen

Their first stop is Southern California, renovating the home of Keith and Hannah Sumner. Their craftsmanship transforms the couple's kitchen with cottage style.

Dynamic Dining

Robert and Albert outfit the Sumners' dining room with elegant handmade furniture and eclectic lighting fixtures.

Camera Shy

Shooting and starring in a television show is no doubt a unique experience for Robert and Albert, especially considering that Amish tradition forbids them from owning televisions.
