Building Alaska is an original American unscripted docu-series about home reconstructing. The program comes from the production studio Orson Entertainment, and is available on the DIY network in the US. Exec produced by Lisa Crowell and Chris Dorsey, Building Alaska debuted in the US on November 11, 2012.

The cutting-edge documentary is set in the state of Alaska and follows three competing groups of professional builders competing in these severe conditions to construct three cabins located off the grid in Alaskan desert. Lacking infrastructure and experiencing all kinds of obstacles in getting the necessary supplies, the workers will have to work out original designs and put them into execution in order to complete their missions successfully.

From the very premiere the show has been holding rather average reviews, but still has been able to maintain its loyal fan club. As Building Alaska has a victorious mix of the two very popular recent TV trends – home improvement programs and reality shows concerning living in the remote regions of the world. Being only in its fifth cycle, the series has become one of the top series for the network and in 2014 it has brought the best ratings for it. Though Building Alaska hasn’t enjoyed any awards yet, it is worth watching, especially for those, who is keen on home design and building art.
