But they get off to a rocky start when the traditional crew discovers they are missing a crucial piece of the puzzle. Meanwhile, a young couple in Ventura, Calif. decides the real estate market is too pricey, so they decide to build their own home — in their parent's backyard. Find out if seasoned framers and a couple of do-it-yourselfers can put together a "build-by-numbers" cabin kit on this edition of "Assembly Required."
