Antique Cabins and Barns, LLC, a company headquartered in Lewisburg, West Virginia, is enjoying their new-found fame and business success as their reality TV show enters its second season on the DIY Network.
The show’s description, provided by producers of the series, says that, “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.”
Show episodes focus on the crew rescuing and reusing antique log and lumber structures. Recent episode titles include:
- Re-purposing Every Beam from a Pennsylvania Bank Barn
- Turning a ramshackle cabin into a guest house in Missouri
- Moving a Pre-Civil War Log Cabin from West Virginia to Tennessee
According to their website, “Antique Cabins and Barns, LLC travels throughout the countryside of the Eastern U.S. and into the lake country of Ontario in search of antique log structures. All of our buildings are at least 100 years old, each with its own unique history. When we locate a home or barn with unusual characteristics, we carefully dismantle the structure log by log with detailed measurements and notes. The structures are then transported to our facility where we again reassemble the shell of each building. We typically maintain an inventory of five to 15 log structures reassembled at our facility.”
