Genre: Reality, House/garden
Premise: As one of the lead designers for nine seasons on ABC's Emmy-winning ``Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,'' Paul DiMeo encountered his share of next-to-impossible construction projects. So building wilderness retreats is a walk in the park by comparison, right? Not so fast. Paulie, as he is known, and master fabricator Pat ``Tuffy'' Bakaitis are partners in a cabin design and construction business called Cabin Kings, and in ``Building Wild,'' the duo create unbelievable rustic getaways, transforming discarded materials into eye-catching contraptions and overcoming outrageous building challenges along the way. In each episode, Paulie and Tuffy provide the big ideas and construction know-how to a client looking to build a backwoods paradise on a challenging property. To keep costs low, the landowners supply some materials, bring together a workforce of friends and family and agree to do the entire build in one week.
