Homestead Rescue Full Episode Guide

  • The Raneys return to Alaska to find their homestead in disrepair. Their wooden tram supports were destroyed by beetle kill, and they need a water source and firewood. Then they must deal with fallout from an earthquake.

  • A day in, Marty is hit with a bombshell the old well he's come to fix has already claimed its first victim. To set the Dagues on a path to self-sufficiency, the Raneys try to deliver a long-term water source, protein supply, and sustainable power.

  • The Raneys build a school root cellar and greenhouse to inspire teenager sisters.

  • Marty takes on a risky first-time build - a huge diverter trench to deflect the torrents of storm water devastating the homestead of musician Lou and his girlfriend Stacy. But with a huge storm forecast, no one can predict if this rescue will succeed.

  • The challenge includes a Missouri homestead with a hungry bear scratching the walls; disease-carrying ticks; no food to eat; no power to cry for help; and 60 massive oaks looming over a flimsy cabin in tornado alley.

  • Threatened by an approaching wildfire, Stuart and Toni Rinker need a quick solution to their failing Idaho homestead. The Raneys plan to fireproof the Rinkers' cabin and build a firebreak.

  • Marty helps Oregon homesteaders April and Mike Kondash build a barn, Misty creates her first-ever subterranean garden, and Matt finds a humane approach to a mysterious predator threat.

  • The Raneys must move an entire cabin into the flood zone as Marty's dam is put to the test. A surprise arrival of chicks means Misty needs a clever upgrade for a ravaged chicken coop. Matt crafts a knife blade in the Smiths' newly improved foundry.

  • A dangerous request from the Smith family in a Missouri flood zone forces the Raneys into the homestead challenge of their lives as they build a dam and plan an entire cabin move.

  • The Raney's create their first-ever self-automated homestead in the fierce Alaskan wilderness to function while firefighters Kim and Casey Boespflug are away on duty.

  • Marty embarks on an ambitious, off-grid hydropower system after Tennessee storms obliterate the Reathifords' power source while Matt creates a meat smoker, but a surprise accident leads to a construction site injury for one of the Raneys

  • Stranded on a cliff in their RV, amputee Jeff Tatsch and wife Carol need a livable home, water, and a place to grow food, so the Raneys build an entire cabin from scratch on solid ground and harness a source of water from a natural spring.

  • Toxic land plagues this Kentucky homestead, so the Raneys must build the Rains family a hillside garden, turn a cave into a goat fortress, and find uncontaminated water deep underground.

  • Embarking on a new season of saving homesteads in peril, the Raneys look back on some of their most ingenious builds, unpacking their techniques and examining the off-grid financial savings before revealing the all-time fan-favorite build.
