Is It Any Good?

Building Wild offers an interesting look at the different ways that things like wood salvaged from barns and old trucks can be repurposed to build and outfit sturdy and fun cabins designed to be used for hunting trips and other events. It also shows how structures like outhouses and bunks can be reengineered to be more efficient and comfortable.

Most of the show is dedicated to the engineering and construction of these structures, but there are some humorous moments, especially when Paul's desire to use old-fashioned building techniques clash with Tuffy's desire to use big machines to do the job. If you enjoy building shows, you'll find it worth watching.
