Barnwood Builders follows six good-natured West Virginians who know a thing or two about wood. This passionate team is devoted to salvaging and old-world craftsmanship. They are masters of big, filthy, difficult, 19th-century restorations, and they are as entertaining as a woodpecker in a lumber yard.
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.
The Barnwood Builders never give up on a log cabin and despite some rough going early on, this one turns out to be worth all the extra effort. Mark goes on a cross-county search for replacement logs while the team finds creative ways of pulling the cabin apart without sacrificing its logs.
The Barnwood Builders build a timber frame kitchen that will be the centerpiece of a high-end mountain retreat in Brevard, NC. Later, Mark and the guys visit some of the architect's other spectacular log homes.
Mark and the guys travel to Gatlinburg, Tenn., to replace a log home lost in the 2016 wildfires; they bring with them the Beam Cabin, but it's no easy feat to move these massive logs up a narrow mountain pass; designer Karen Tillery works with Mark.
The builders turn to the old-school method of using ropes to take down a log cabin in Harrisville, W.Va.; later on, they shop at the oldest five-and-dime in the United States and meet some modern-day pioneers who hewed their own log cabin by hand.
Mark and the guys return to Texas to build a gigantic party barn out of an old timber frame. They use old-fashioned tools to retrofit the barn for modern use, and they install a rare swing beam in the center bent.
In Ohio, Mark and the guys attempt to save a giant double pen barn, but high winds turn this complicated job into a treacherous one.
Mark finds a perfectly preserved bank barn in Pennsylvania; the beams are so nice, he considers keeping this barn for himself; he also visits a bank barn that has been transformed into a high-end home with barn-wood flooring and soapstone counters.
After the flood waters recede, the builders join the recovery efforts in White Sulphur Springs, W. Va.; the team builds a timber-frame pavilion as the centerpiece of a memorial park, and community members build barn-wood picnic tables.
Mark and the guys go the extra mile to save antique logs from a Tennessee home in distress; they meet Larry, who grew up in the log cabin with no running water; in the end, Mark makes him a one-of-a-kind barn-wood memento of his childhood home.
After years of searching, Mark Bowe finds the barn he wants to turn into his own home; the guys take apart the bank barn without breaking any of the beams; the team works together to save the hand-hewn beams, flooring and valuable sleeper logs.
After once saving Larry Melton's childhood home, The Barnwood Builders do something they've never done before and invite him to the Boneyard to help restore his family home. It's log cabin restoration and repair 101 as Larry learns the ropes, and just when he thinks the experience can't get any better, Mark arranges a final surprise with some very special guests.
