Pacific Coast Highway

For 25 years, construction crews dug, blasted, tunneled, and bridged their way up America's West Coast along the California, Oregon, and Washington shoreline to build the Pacific Coast Highway.

Brojects

Ultimate Smokehouse

The cottage of brothers Andrew and Kevin lacks a ‘man’tuary: a place to sit, watch fire cook meat, drink liquids that burn your belly, and generally look busy while doing next to nothing. While sweeping the chimney in preparation for the winter in between sips of bourbon and nibbles of smoked salmon, inspiration hits the boys — what if they combine a smoke shack with a bourbon bar? The smoker is the perfect 'smoke screen' that will allow the bros to hit the bar while their wives think they are working hard on preparing food for dinner.
