Ultimate Swim Raft
Swimming in the lake is an essential part of the cottage experience but the brothers need a swim raft….the ultimate swim raft. Andrew and Kevin retreat to the drawing board eager to fix the situation. They quickly come to the conclusion that their new swim raft will need to be self-propelled so that it can be moored both at the shore as well as in the middle of the lake where the swimming is prime. Together with their engineer pal Walker, the boys decide to build the Ultimate Swim Raft, complete with benches, a cedar pergola, a hammock, a solar-powered motor, a trap-door cooler, a retractable anchor.

The Chair Ski
Brothers Andrew and Kevin have always wanted to combine their two favourite activities at the cottage: water sports and relaxing on their deck chairs. The boys concoct yet another one-of-a-kind Brojects creation: The Chair Ski – a deck chair on water-skis that can be towed at break-neck speeds with a motorboat. As always, Andrew wants to take it one step further and decides to add a jump, and as always, Kevin disapproves. Join the boys on as they embark on their wackiest (and wettest) adventure yet.

Ultimate Pizza Oven
Brothers Andrew and Kevin want to create the ultimate Margherita and Margarita experience: fresh, piping-hot Neapolitan-style Margherita pizzas paired with tasty frozen Margarita cocktails. The brothers, after consulting with their engineer pal Walker, set about converting a potbelly charcoal BBQ into a pizza oven and an old exercise bike into the human-powered blender. With friends and family on the way, the boys are in a race against the clock to get their outdoor kitchen ready in time for the big party.

Ultimate Outdoor Theatre
Frustrated by the poor movie watching experience inside the cottage, Brothers Andrew and Kevin dream of having an outdoor movie theatre setup, and this weekend they set out to realize that dream. They want something that is portable, can be hidden when not in use, is protected from the elements, can function as a music system when not being used to watch movies, and above all, is easy to set up and take down. Settle back with a bag of popcorn and watch as the brothers, together with some help from Walker, premiere their Ultimate Outdoor Theatre.

Ultimate Fire Pit
For brothers Andrew and Kevin, the heart of their cottage has always been the fire pit. It’s the epicentre of all cottage weekends and the place where laughs are loudest and memories are made. Food, fun, and fire all revolve around this simple hole in the ground. The brothers understand the importance of such a location and set about constructing one that is fitting of the ultimate cottage. From log chaise lounges to suspended fire pits, the bros set their imaginations ablaze. What emerges from the ashes is truly the Ultimate Brojects Fire Pit.

Ultimate Outdoor Shower
Brothers Andrew and Kevin arrive at the cottage with autumn colours on the trees and a plan to tackle one of their most important cottage projects yet: the Ultimate Outdoor Cottage Shower. The brothers dream of a shower with a view of the lake and an open roof to see the stars, a destination shower where they can relax and wash off a hard day’s work.

Under direction from their wives to build a play area for the kids, the boys tackle the ultimate playground. Having unleashed their inner eight year-olds in creating a cottage playground for their children, brothers Andrew and Kevin realize they’re actually making one for themselves. The boys hurl themselves headlong into slack lines, zip lines, teeter-totters and a man-sized version of a baby bouncer, proving the old adage that while growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional.

Ultimate Hot Tub
Growing up, “hot tubbing,” meant a bathtub in their front yard fed with a garden hose. Inspired to set things right, brothers Kevin and Andrew get to work on designing and building the Ultimate Cottage Hot Tub. With a lust for unobstructed nighttime stargazing, Andrew pushes his brother towards making the hot tub amphibious so they can float out onto the lake in style to view the stars. With their life jackets and frosty drinks loaded on board, the boys set sail for the adventure of a life (or death) time.

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.

Ultimate Ice Fishing Shack
The lake at the cottage is not open for winter fishing so the brothers Andrew and Kevin decide they need a mobile ice fishing shack they can haul into the middle of a frozen lake. But it’s not just going to be any old shack — the brothers, together with their engineer pal Walker, are aiming for something that can rightfully be called the Ultimate Ice Fishing Shack.
