  • Mark Bowe has a Montana client who wants to give a modern home a classic log cabin look. The only way to do that is to use real logs so the guys build a cabin facade using antique log veneers. They use more log veneers to create a new piece for the Barnwood Showroom. Mark then tours a beautiful home that's fully decked out in reclaimed wood veneers.

  • Mark splits up his crew so they can conquer two jobs at the same time. Johnny and Tim take down a big tobacco barn that has plenty of antique material worth salvaging, while Graham and Alex tackle a log cabin that's still in great shape.

  • 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.
