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.
Paige and Cody's build takes a hit after Sterling and Joe leave the site and a trailer full of vital materials breaks down. The foundation is sinking at Mike and Teresa's cabin while Kathleen and Mike Kondus watch part of their cabin begin to crumble.
The Konduses fight the rain and shattered window panes deep in the White Mountains. Mike and Teresa's team gets stuck on slippery scaffolding 19 feet in the air while Paige and Cody's build stalls thanks to a material ordering snafu near the deadline.
It's a race to the finish as 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.
