About the show

What does it take to build a house totally off the grid in some of the most unforgiving terrain on the planet? We follow a cast of characters who set out to construct three incredible cabins in the obscure Alaskan wilderness. With no roads and no building supply centers, they’ll have to get creative in a new season of Building Alaska.

Jeff Erickson helicopters in the remaining furniture for his cabin, Chris Sewell's team works hard through the night to get the interior floors installed at Judd Lake and Chappie's team pushes themselves to finish the cabin's ladders, kitchen and master bedroom at East Butterfly Lake.
