The build on this year's cabin is well underway. After making headway on the porches, the build moves forward by installing the winning options: woodburning fireplaces, the metal roof, double hung windows & stoning the fireplace surround. Matt Blashaw shows up with a few construction ideas for the dual fireplaces; a rustic log holder and an iron mantle holder. But of course he does what he does best: deconstructs! Ahmed takes Matt on a trip to a local ironshop to forge firedogs for the fireplace & the custom mantle holder. Everything is going according to plan, when the stonemason's pull out of the job. Will the fireplaces get stoned, will America's winner be installed, will the mantle go up before Matt leaves?
Inspired by the breathtaking views, an outdoor space wraps the side of the house, providing shade from the intense midday sun. A pergola roof, vertical garden and grill station create the ultimate outdoor escape.
