Mark Bowe of DIY Network's Barnwood Builders.

Mark Bowe, star of the DIY Network's "Barnwood Builders," lived in Knoxville for a year in 1995 and said he's looking forward to coming back.

Bowe has run his business, Antique Cabins and Barns, in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va., where he and his crew reclaim and restore 18th and 19th century log and timber frame homes, for 20 years. Their work is documented on "Barnwood Builders," and Bowe will return to Knoxville next weekend to speak about the show and more at the  2017 Dogwood Arts House & Garden Show.

"I genuinely love Knoxville, and I can't wait to be there," said Bowe. "I'm really super excited ... I still feel kid-like with this, you know, I really do. We've been doing this 20 years and all of sudden have this platform that we get to continue to be goofballs and work hard," said Bowe, laughing.
