They also learned to make marbles by hand with Ellenboro glass artist Sam Hogue.\r\n\r\nIn nearby Cairo, Ritchie County, the Barnwood Builders met Martha and Dick Hartley, a local couple who built a log house homestead by hand.\r\n\r\nThe episode aired Sunday night on the DIY Network.\r\n\r\nFor those who missed the Harrisville episode it will air again this Sunday, July 23 at 11 p.m.\r\n\r\nFilming for the episode in Ritchie County took place in January.\r\n\r\nNow in its fifth season, \u201cBarnwood Builders\u201d is one of the most successful shows on the DIY Network, said Sean McCourt, executive producer. Silent Crow Arts, based in New York City, is the production company.\r\n\r\nMcCourt describes the one-hour show as: \u201cSix good natured West Virginians travel the heartland saving pioneer log cabins and building gorgeous modern homes with reclaimed lumber. The show\u2019s star, Mark Bowe, lives by the motto, \u2018work hard, be kind, take pride.\u2019\u201d\r\n\r\nBowe lives in Lewisburg. Bowe wanted the show to present a positive message about West Virginia, McCourt said.\r\n\r\nMcCourt said he has found that West Virginians take great pride in the homespun series that celebrates old fashioned values and West Virginia pride.\r\n\r\nThere is a new episode of \u201cBarnwood Builders\u201d every Sunday at 9 p.m. on DIY. Episodes then re-air several times, McCourt said. There are 13 \u201cBarnwood Builders\u201d shows each season, with seven taking place in West Virginia. The Barnwood Builders do great work, transforming old barns and cabins into nice homes, McCourt said.
