Jim Bigelow is the all-American single dad raising his five sons, ranging in age 7 to 16. The Bigelow Six live in a two-bedroom, two-bath mobile home in Palmdale, Calif. The guys are a tight knit bunch, but there's one big problem. There's nowhere for 10-year-old Jake to sleep, so he has to spend nights at his grandma's. Jim recently changed careers to become a teacher so he could be closer to his boys. He even coaches them in sports. Jim's dream is to one day be able to give his sons a home they can all live in together -- a log cabin.
