The Barnwood Builders have been saving Kentucky tobacco barns for more than 20 years, and Johnny has found another one in Nicholas County.

Mark checks out a finished log home that he stacked with the guys several years ago, and the whole team visits Daniel Boone's Kentucky home.
The Barnwood Builders build a pioneer blacksmith shop made from reclaimed beams, barnwood and rafters to serve as their office breakroom.

Mark donates a timber frame to his alma mater, West Virginia University, as the latest addition to their pioneer heritage center. The Barnwood Builders work side-by-side with WVU volunteers to raise the timber frame barn by hand, teaching them how to build bents, cut pegs and even hew a log.
Joe and Merrie dreamed of having an antique log cabin, but Merrie passed away unexpectedly only a few weeks after they picked one out in the Boneyard.

The guys stack Merrie's cabin on the banks of beautiful Lake Hartwell in Georgia, and with the help of a local woodworker, Mark surprises Joe with a heartfelt gift.

It's a day filled with something old, something new, something borrowed ... and something barnwood!
The Barnwood Builders give a modern mansion a complete log cabin makeover complete with log skins and a stacked log entryway.
