Jonathan and Drew Scott might seem like city folk, but they really grew up on a ranch in the Canadian Rockies. It was there they learned to live by the "Cowboy Code," ride horses and generally be some hard-working dudes.

Now, the brothers are going back to their roots to do a top-to-bottom renovation for a family friend's ranch on the all-new series Property Brothers at Home on the Ranch (Wednesdays at 9p | 8c.) Their first order of business: Enjoy the view and roast some marshmallows with the family. Did someone say s'mores?

Their second order of business: Transform the ranch hand cabin into a modern rustic guest cottage. They had their work cut out for them!

Jonathan and Drew replaced the front porch with heart pine boards, and replaced the tired bench with a new cedar version outfitted with a cowhide throw and indoor-outdoor pillows.

Inside the cabin, they brought the decor out of the 1970s while still preserving the home's rustic feel. Can you believe this dark living room full of dated pine paneling (left) is the same space as the airy, open living area on the right?

Drew and Jonathan added hardwood floors, then painted the pine wall paneling bright white. A pint-sized sectional adds seating for a small group in this living room, while a watercolor horse painting nods to the home's placement on a working ranch.

Bathroom, Before

This home's bedroom hasn't been updated for more than 20 years, since Drew and Jonathan's father updated the home's plumbing. It's in major need of a cosmetic fix!

Bathroom, After

The new cabin bathroom features a glass-enclosed stand-up shower, which creates the illusion of added square footage. A wood countertop adds a rustic touch to this space.
