Salvage Job: Smith Mountain Lake / Radford, VA / Delivery to NYC

Leave it to living in a small town when 'the bee guy' that comes to save the day during a salvage job turns out to be one of your good customers!  We were thrilled to have Jeff Jenner - co-owner of Turkey Ridge Farms in Boones Mill, VA - help re-home a swarm of honeybees during a recent salvage job at Smith Mountain Lake. The cabin was located on property owned by Crystal Shores Marina, which is slated for development.

 For some background on Jeff, click HERE for an article describing the unique and awesome 5,000 square foot Queen Anne Victorian in the making he's building with his wife Sandy!

The crew was able to salvage beautiful old growth wood from the cabin that will be used for many projects, including this bed designed by Mike and Gracie.

Note the pillows from our vendor, Woven Home!

Robert and Tay made a quick trip down to Radford to salvage a number of antique light fixtures (listed in our Ebay Store) and this unusual bathtub. 

We don't typically take in built-in tubs but this is unusual in that it is  three sided and just look at those curves!

Big Balls also arrived at the shop!

Great nautical yard art!

We appreciated having the opportunity to see how the fire doors, salvaged from Washington Mills in Mayodan, NC, will live on!

Mike and Ted delivered the doors to a former cotton factory that has been converted to lofts - can't think of a better fit!  Here's a behind the scenes look at the glamorous side of filming Salvage Dawgs :)  Many thanks to homeowner Frank and son Jack for being such good sports!
