Plot Synopsis

BARNWOOD BUILDERS is a one-hour reality series that follows Mark Bowe and his crew of West Virginia master craftsmen, as they salvage antique barns and cabins, reusing the wood to create stunning, modern homes. In the pilot, Mark and the guys work to dismantle a barn built by Abe Lincoln's uncle around 1830, and then back on the Boneyard they use old tobacco timbers to build a new barn in the Appalachian dogtrot style. DIY Network first aired the BARNWOOD BUILDERS pilot as a one-hour special on November 1, 2013 at 10pm ET, more than eleven months before the program returned as a series on GAC on Tuesday, October 7, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT. GAC re-aired the pilot as the series premiere episode, immediately followed by a brand-new episode at 11pm ET/PT during which the guys rescue a huge double-pen barn in St. Meinrad, Indiana. It's the biggest dogtrot-style barn they've ever faced, and they have to fight through modern layers of tin and barnwood to get to the incredible, pioneer-era hand-hewn beams. Season 2 of BARNWOOD BUILDERS premiered on Sunday, October 11, 2015 from 9-11pm ET/PT, as DIY Network debuted back-to-back new episodes immediately following an eight-hour marathon (1-9pm) of encore episodes. In the season opener (9pm), "Peeling Layers Off a Covered Log Home in Virginia," the guys take down a farmhouse that Mark bought sight unseen in Abingon, VA, and they strip away each layer and salvage the incredible hand-hewn timbers underneath. Then, in the second new episode (10pm), "Turning a Ramshackle Cabin Into a Guest House in Missouri," the guys travel to Missouri to take down and rebuild a historic 170-year-old cabin, converting it into a guest house. The third season of BARNWOOD BUILDERS premiered on Sunday, April 24, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT on DIY. The new season features Mark and his team as they tackle their biggest and most complicated jobs yet, including moving materials from West Virginia to Montana for a rebuild in Big Sky country. In the season opener, "Rebuilding Grandma's Cabin in Montana," Mark and the guys travel all the way to Montana to rebuild Grandma's cabin from last season. They give the 150-year old home a whole new life as a cliff-side lodge. They explore the cabins of the wild west and enjoy some Montana Ranch fun. DIY Network premiered the fourth season of BARNWOOD BUILDERS on Sunday, October 30, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT. In the season opener, "Complicated Carriage House," the Barnwood Builders pull into New Ringgold, Pennsylvania, in a covered wagon, ready to take down and move a very complicated carriage house. They find all sorts of treasures in the 150-year-old pioneer garage before they carefully strip it, lift the roof off in sections and disassemble the beams.

On Sunday, June 11, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT, DIY Network premiered the fifth season of BARNWOOD BUILDERS. In the season opener, "Picture-Perfect Cabin," Mark's client has a painting of a log cabin he wants to replicate so the team sets out to find the perfect cabin for the job. After settling on a cabin from an old project, the Barnwood Builders rebuild the structure with its huge logs in Texas. While on the job, Mark visits an original Texan pioneer cabin and discovers something about his crew that he never knew.
