Building Alaska Full Episode Guide

  • Paige and Cody wrap up before dog racing season in Cantwell, while Mike and Kathleen lose all their help deep in the White Mountains. Meanwhile, the Oldenkamps struggle with the challenges of working on a grain-bin-style cabin.

  • The Konduses fight rain and shattered window panes; Mike and Teresa's team gets stuck on slippery scaffolding; and Paige and Cody's build stalls after an ordering snafu.

  • Paige and Cody's build takes a hit when they're left short handed. The foundation is sinking at Mike and Teresa's cabin while Kathleen and Mike Kondus watch part of their cabin begin to crumble.

  • Mike and Kathleen move to interior work, but the remote location is still slow with progress. At Paige and Cody's site, mechanical failures prevent the project from finishing before dog sled season. As Mike and Teresa build higher, it gets more dangerous.

  • Mike and Teresa begin building their walls, but the winch is more dangerous than they realized. Paige and Cody use a boom truck, forcing the team to work extra cautiously. Mike and Kathleen find a nasty surprise at the bottom of the mountain.

  • Mike and Kathleen begin on the foundation, but their nail gun goes on the fritz and the posts aren't level. Dog mushers Paige and Cody run low on supplies. Mike and Teresa work on their foundation with a damaged excavator.

  • Three new couples challenge the Alaskan elements. Mike and Kathleen Kondus build atop a windy tundra, first-time builders Mike and Teresa Oldenkamp construct a complex cabin and Paige Drobny and Cody Strathe create a dog-training facility on haunted land.

  • Jackie's team delivers French Doors only to find the frame fits incorrectly during installation. A snow machine delivery runs into problems on the melted trail at the Hill's build site. Meanwhile, the Owens team is installing windows when Kyle slips and falls.

  • The Owens work to finish the roof, but multiple falling objects and whiteout conditions make the job perilous. Jackie and her team struggle lifting the 250-pound stove from the bay up to the cabin, and The Hills arrive at their build site to find their materials buried under the snow.

  • The Hills work on their first floor framing, but work slows to a stop when their tools begin to freeze. The Owens work on installing the second story gables, while Jackie and her team work to finish the cabin's roof structure.

  • The Hills race to finish installing their floor to avoid a delivery delay, which leads to an on-site injury. Meanwhile, Jackie and her team run into problems when their build materials start to fall apart, while the Owens struggle to install flooring before possibly being buried by a snowstorm.

  • At Jackie's slippery build site, the team works to finish the subfloor and start raising walls, but rain and mud hinder them at every step. Meanwhile, the Hills are forced to dig their supplies out of three feet of snow, while the Owen family works to overcome missing pieces of their log walls.

  • Three new teams begin their projects; Matt and Amy Hill realize building in snow is complicated; Mike and Dan Owens mill the lumber needed for their build; Jackie Keizer hires a team that struggles to bring out an excavator to dig her foundation.
