Mark Bowe, host of DIY Network’s Barnwood Builders, worked his way through West Virginia University as a coal miner, earning a bachelor’s degree in business administration. He is a craftsman, a businessman, a historian, and a passable break-dancer (if you give him enough room). Mark also holds a master’s degree in safety management from WVU College. He founded his company, Antique Cabins and Barns, in 1995. He and his longtime crew have reclaimed more than 400 pioneer-era structures. Mark says he is passionate about honoring the craft of America’s pioneer ancestors and is devoted to ensure their hard work lives for centuries to come.

The Barnwood Builders crew also includes: the machine operator, Johnny Jett; Tim Rose, the beam lifter; the foreman of the crew Sherman Thompson; and the youngest, next generation builder, Graham Ferguson.
