Ultimate Swim Raft was the first episode of the first season of Brojects.  It premiered on Cottage Life on March 27th, 2014.


Swimming in the lake is an essential part of the cottage experience but the brothers need a swim raft. Andrew and Kevin retreat to the drawing board eager to fix the situation. They quickly come to the conclusion that their 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, storage, lighting, a cedar pergola, a hammock, a solar-powered trolling motor, a hidden sub-floor cooler, and a retractable anchor.

  • The brothers used ten 55-gallon plastic drums as their floatation -- that's roughly equal to 5,284 pints of beer.



Kevin Edit

  • “We’re gonna look like sea-hicks.”
  • “You know what: just admit that you’re an imbecile, and I’ll be happy.”
  • “You idiot.”
  • “Hit it again with your handbag, Mildred!”
  • “I’d still like to punch him in the face for not buying enough wood.”
  • “It’s heavy as a church, man.”
  • “This bobbin’s done, dang!”


  • “Each barrel should float about 400 pounds, so that’s two of Kevin’s chins.”
  • “You wanna run back to aisle three and get a better attitude?”
  • “Skirt? I don’t do skirts, man. It’s your thing.”
  • “Just flip it around and you hide your mistakes. You should know that by now. Would’ve been nice if mom and dad did the same.”


  • “I just wish maybe one of the projects could’ve been our patio at home”
