Paul Dimeo Building Wild
Building Wild is a reality construction series for National Geographic Channel. It features the work of Paul DiMeo and Pat “Tuffy” Bakatis, collectively known as The Cabin Kings.
As one of the lead designers for nine seasons on ABC’s Emmy-winning “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” 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.
