The Original Pilot that led to Barnwood Builders. Directed by Rick Kaplan.

Mark Bowe is the founder and president of Barnwood Living and the host of the popular DIY Network series, Barnwood Builders. Mark speaks to students from WVU's College of Business & Economics. The talk is part of the college's Distinguished Speakers Series. 


Mark Bowe has defined his career as an entrepreneur through the use of strong business acumen combined with down home common sense. In his working life, Mark has endured conditions of underground coal mines, felt the euphoric highs of growing a successful construction company, as well as the pains of a slowly dying niche business. Mark lives in Lewisburg, WV with his wife Cindy and son Atticus. He is a closet break dancer and a shameless self-promoter. Mark can be seen around town giving hugs to friends and strangers with equal embrace.
