Nat Geo’s New Show “Building Wild” Starts Tonight! A Great Show With Lots Of Local Connections

I can not believe I had not heard about this show before today! It looks so cool and both the producer and one of the stars of the show are from right here in Hoosick Falls. The show “Building Wild” is produced by George Verschoor from Hoosick Falls and stars Pat “Tuffy” Bakaitis who has owned the excavation company Hoosick Sand & Gravel for over 35 years.

The show also stars, Paul DiMeo. Best known as the carpenter with attitude on ABC Television’s two-time Emmy winning Extreme Makeover.

The concept of the show seems pretty cool, people who have an “exotic” piece of land or strange idea about what sort of cabin they want enlist the help of these guys to build their “dream cabin get-a-way”.  Of course we can’t make it easy so the guys have to do the job in just one week, and as far as I can tell have use materials they find nearby.

I found the trailer for the show so you can get an idea f it as well, from what I can tell it looks really fun and the personalities of these two guys seem to make it really work. Take a look for yourself and be sure to tune in TONIGHT at 9 pm, on the National Geographic Channel.
