DIY Network’s 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. He founded his company, Antique Cabins and Barns, in 1995. He and his longtime crew have reclaimed more than 400 pioneer-era structures. Mark says he is passionate about honoring the craft of America’s pioneer ancestors and is devoted to ensure their hard work lives for centuries to come.

Alana & Lex LeBlanc | HGTV’s Listed Sisters

Sisters Alana and Lex LeBlanc, a real estate and home design duo in Nashville, star in HGTV’s home renovation and flipping series Listed Sisters. The series showcases Alana and Lex as they help their clients transform homes they’ve outgrown into hot properties that can fetch top dollar. Using Alana’s sharp property skills and Lex’s creative style, the LeBlanc sisters help families search for and purchase their dream home. Alana, who is dedicated to building stronger and more progressive communities, originally moved to Nashville because it’s a beautiful place to work and spend time with her two children. Lex, a graduate of New York School of Interior Design, has worked in the design industry for nearly a decade. She says she is a design history and furniture enthusiast who strives to find ways to preserve a home’s original character. She recently relocated to Nashville to be closer to her sister so that her two children could spend time with their cousins.
