But with trees blocking the main road to the resort, the only way the crew can haul it to the new site is to wait until the lake freezes solid, and then build an ice road to roll the house across. Several attempts to haul houses across frozen lakes have ended in disaster. Will Sean and Wayne's beloved cabin make the journey without sinking into the icy abyss?
