A new reality show starring the crew from our very own Pioneer Log Homes will air its first episode this weekend.

The Timber Kings will premiere this Sunday, Jan. 5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV Canada.

The docu-reality show follows the jobs and experiences of the master log smiths at Pioneer Log Homes as they build massive, multi-million dollar log homes around the world under tight deadlines and intense pressure.

“We think viewers will agree that the Timber Kings are more than builders and highly-skilled craftsmen. They are also true artists … with egos and competitive drives, of course,” said Audrey Mehler, Executive Vice President for Paperny Entertainment.

The premiere episode focuses on building a 4,400 square foot lakefront cottage in Northern Ontario where the severe winter weather puts everything at risk for the Timber Kings crew.

All of the materials must make it over a series of three impossibly narrow, icy bridges before they can even begin building, putting their timelines to the test.  Back at the work yard in Williams Lake, an eccentric Arkansas millionaire is in the market for a massive 1,000 year old tree to become the centerpiece of his new home for a whopping cost of $80,000, and two of the Pioneer Log Homes crew push each other to breaking points in a fight for new equipment.

The stars are expected to attend their first poster signing sometime Friday, Jan. 3 at Walmart in Williams Lake.
