Barnwood Builders is a reality television show that first premiered on the Great American Country channel in 2013. The show follows a group of skilled craftsmen as they travel around the United States in search of old, dilapidated barns that can be dismantled and repurposed into beautiful new homes, restaurants, and shops.

The show is hosted by Johnny Jett, Mark Bowe, and Tim Rose, who make up the core team of the Barnwood Builders. Each episode begins with the team scouting out an old barn that is in need of some repair, and then they work together to carefully dismantle the entire structure piece by piece.

Throughout the process, the team uses traditional techniques and hand tools to carefully remove the wood, which is often more than a century old. They then sort and label each piece of wood, so that they can be reused in the construction of new structures.

The wood is often weathered and imperfect, but the team sees the beauty in it and uses it to create stunning, rustic designs that are both functional and beautiful. The team's passion for preserving the history and character of these old buildings is evident in every episode, and they take great pride in their work.

In addition to the Barnwood Builders themselves, the show also features the clients who commission these beautiful new structures. Whether it is a family in need of a new farmhouse, a restaurant owner looking for a unique space, or a corporate retreat seeking an inspiring location, the team always delivers beautiful and functional structures that exceed their clients' expectations.

One of the things that sets Barnwood Builders apart from other design shows is the emphasis on sustainability and environmental responsibility. By repurposing old barns that would otherwise be demolished and sent to a landfill, the team is able to reduce the amount of waste in the construction industry and create stunning new structures that have a small environmental footprint.

The show is also known for its focus on family and community. Many of the episodes feature the team working alongside members of the community to bring these old barns back to life. Whether it's working with Amish craftsmen to rebuild a barn using traditional techniques or partnering with local builders to create a new community center, the Barnwood Builders are committed to working with others to create beautiful, sustainable structures that benefit everyone.

Overall, Barnwood Builders is a captivating show that combines beautiful design, traditional craftsmanship, and a commitment to sustainability and community. With its talented team of hosts and stunning before-and-after transformations, it is a must-watch for anyone interested in architecture, design, or sustainability.

Barnwood Builders is a series that is currently running and has 17 seasons (236 episodes). The series first aired on October 7, 2014.
