Normally well ahead of the pack, the couple were running behind schedule, a point driven home by Keith who at one point informed Ronnie he had about 10 hours left of work to do with less than one hour left of power tool use to do it in  

'You're right, you've got me. You've got me. I'm done,' Ronnie told Keith before ripping off his ear muffs and knocking over a plank of wood as he stormed off.

However, his tantrum seemed to be all in jest, as he quickly turned around and laughed: 'Too much?'
