Mark Bowe

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's College of Business. He founded his company, Antique Cabins and Barns, in 1995. In 2016 he expanded that business into what is today known as Barnwood Living. He and his longtime crew have reclaimed more than 500 pioneer-era structures. Mark is passionate about honoring the craft of America’s pioneer ancestors and is devoted to ensure their hard work lives for centuries to come.  Catch him on stage on Friday at 3pm and Saturday at 1pm & 4pm.

Matt Paxton

Co-Founder & CMO/Legacy Navigator

Matt might look familiar because he is one of the top hoarding experts in the country and a featured cleaner on the hit television show HOARDERS. Paxton started cleaning out houses after his father and grandparents passed away in the same year. He has focused his career on solving difficult living situations caused by hoarding, but the experience of handling his father’s and grandparents’ estates stuck with him and is the reason for creating Legacy Navigator, a full-service estate cleanout company. Matt appears regularly as a public speaker, television guest and radio personality. He lives in Virginia with his wife and three sons.  Matt will be on stage on Saturday at Noon and 3pm and on Sunday at 2pm.
