National Geographic Channel goes off the map to kick off its first do-it-yourself series, Building Wild.
Paulie, as he is known, has partnered with woodsman and master fabricator Pat "Tuffy" Bakaitis on a cabin design and construction business called Cabin Kings. These "Cabin Kings" are construction's odd couple: Paulie is a city boy at heart and Tuffy is a gruff, logical woodsman who has never heard of Starbucks. But together, this duo creates unbelievable wilderness getaways, transforming discarded materials into fabulous contraptions and overcoming outrageous building challenges along the way.

Paulie and Tuffy are revving up for one of their most unique builds yet: a mountaintop motorhead getaway for beloved family man Doug Marpe. Doug asks the Cabin Kings to create a “convertible” bedroom that slides out from the second floor, allowing the family to sleep under the stars. The build site is at the top of an unforgiving mountain road, and getting the family and supplies to the location looks like it’s going to be a problem.
