Mark Bowe and his crew of West Virginia master craftsmen salvage antique barns and cabins. Take a look and see what his team encounters along the way.
Mark and the guys head to Johnny Jett's hometown in Kentucky to build a log chapel. First, they reclaim a stained glass window from a deteriorating 100-year-old church. Then they build the chapel and install the window.
Mark and the guys travel to the heart of West Virginia, to salvage incredibly rare 170-year-old logs from a perfectly preserved log home. The pressure is on to keep these logs pristine as they take them down.
Mark and the guys make a rare trip north to dismantle an enormous, 200-year old barn. This New England Style barn is unlike any one they have ever taken down. The barn is so big it takes extra hands to get the barnwood down, and a crane to lift out the valuable beams.
Mark and the guys save a log cabin from an old Virginia tobacco farm and to turn it into a tasting room for a local distillery. Their client takes the opportunity to go to "Barnwood School." He works alongside Mark and the guys so he can pass these skills on to others.
Mark and the guys save the logs from a fire-damaged home in West Virginia. Mark promises the family who sold him the cabin that he will honor their history here. He calls it Grandma's Cabin. Once the logs are salvaged, the Barnwood Builders rebuild Grandma's Cabin on the Boneyard for a client in Montana.
Mark and the guys take on their biggest build yet. They resurrect the massive New England timber frame from last season as a family retreat in South Carolina. It's six days of heavy lifting, precision craftsmanship, and big fun.
Mark and the guys take the 100% cabin to South Carolina where they rebuild it as a hunting cabin. While they are there, they work with the client's kids to build a camping cabin out of their ancestor's log home.
Mark and the guys explore a perfect pioneer settlement complete with wood, water, and stone. They save the classic log cabin and repurpose the rare hand-cut sandstone chimney. Sherman helps local stonemasons turn the chimney into a fire pit grill.
Mark and the guys have to build their own road to reach a cabin that has been overgrown for 11 years! Rose Riggs never got to finish her dream cabin, but Mark will make sure it gets a new life. He salvages some of the wood to make an incredible rose inlaid table for Rose's daughter.
The Barnwood Builders work with one of their most passionate and knowledgeable clients yet. Together, they build a huge double pen log cabin on a platform 13 feet off the ground. This will be the master suite on a high-end vacation rental. Mark builds the outside. Karen designs the interior.
The Barnwood Builders go deep in the holler to reclaim a rare one-room log schoolhouse full of history. Back on the boneyard, the schoolhouse gets a whole new life.
The team brings an Appalachian-style cabin all the way to western Colorado. At the Canyon of the Ancients Ranch, they explore the stacked stone ruins of the ancestral Puebloans and also leave behind a legacy of their own. Before they leave, they also rebuild the Virginia spring house which will support a living roof.
Mark and the guys use over 100 antique logs from two tobacco barns to build a dramatic entrance for their client's property. The drive-through double corn crib requires a whole lot of teamwork, and involves some of the trickiest notching they've ever done.
