What Is “Maine Cabin Masters” About?
“Maine Cabin Masters” focuses on the work of builder Chase Morrill and his construction team, his sister Ashley Morrill (designer), and his brother-in-law Ryan Eldridge (carpenter) as they renovate dilapidated cabins along Maine’s scenic waterways. Since season one, the show’s cast has expanded to include more memorable characters, some of which are discussed below.
A typical episode begins with Chase introducing his team to a cabin and its hopeful owners looking to revamp their space. With a budget, deadlines, and renovation goals that need to be knocked down, the team works in sync for a total cabin makeover to restore the original beauty of the cabins.
What’s great about the cast is they can integrate innovative modern upgrades like composting toilets and solar panels into their project while keeping the cabin’s aesthetic true to its client’s preferences. Every episode ends with a cherry on the cake: an exciting unveiling of the refurbished and renovated cabin as the team ceremoniously hands over the keys to its owners.
The team works with a trusted community of local artisans and craftspeople across Maine, revamping classic Maine cabins with their unique take. As Morill puts it, be it a lakeside retreat by the shore or a centuries-old cottage in the woods, every home they renovate transforms into an entirely new cabin after this team gives it the revival it needs.
