A staple of the rural landscape, barns have served U.S. society for more than 200 years. Many of the old structures have fallen into disrepair because of time and weather. In this series, Mark Bowe and his crew of West Virginia-based craftsmen salvage antique barns and cabins before the timber can deteriorate. Their goal is to put new life into worn-out structures. Among its projects, the crew tackles disassembling an antebellum log cabin in West Virginia, refurbishing it and rebuilding it for a collector in Tennessee.

When craftsman Jay Chaikin has a design idea, he relies on the environment for inspiration. In "Restoration Wild," Chaikin scours the countryside to reclaim abandoned items and transform them into livable, spectacular spaces, helping clients to reconnect with nature. His toolbox of materials includes rusted-out buses, old barns and abandoned railway cars -- weathered remnants of yesteryear that Jay and his team upcycle for the one-of-a-kind builds.

In 2012, Chaikin was featured in the National Geographic Channel series "Abandoned," in which he and two buddies salvage valuables from dilapidated buildings.
