Ice Ice Baby
Albert and Robert had their TV debut when rapper-turned-renovator Vanilla Ice headed to Amish country to learn a thing or two about quality craftsmanship in his DIY Network series, Vanilla Ice Goes Amish. Here's a behind-the-scenes shot with Albert and Ice.
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.
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.
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.
Their first stop is Southern California, renovating the home of Keith and Hannah Sumner. Their craftsmanship transforms the couple's kitchen with cottage style.
Robert and Albert outfit the Sumners' dining room with elegant handmade furniture and eclectic lighting fixtures.
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.
Saving Sin City
After their stint in Los Angeles, the RENOgades head to Las Vegas to remodel a bachelor pad. The owner, Ricardo (center), takes Albert and Leon (right) BMX bike riding during their visit.

Raising the Bar
While the Amish might abstain from alcohol for religious reasons, that doesn't stop them from making this elegant wet bar for Ricardo's home in Las Vegas.
Man Cave Chic
Albert and Leon's polished workmanship brings Ricardo's bachelor pad to life.
Ready to Work
Here, Albert and Leon are mid-demo at the home of Carmen and Bart in Palm Springs, Calif.
