The Build Begins

After years spent traveling and working around the globe, Jon and Etta Smith are settling down with their 18-month-old daughter, Syndi. In one of the most remote corners of northwestern Montana, they are building a home and bison ranch off the grid. While neighbors are few and far between, Jon and Etta's new house will have no shortage of visitors, from mountain lions, to badgers, to wolves. With the harsh Montana winter right around the corner, these first-time home builders are in a race against time to finish their dream home sooner, rather than later.
