Joe Bowen inherited a portion of the family farm in Bowen, Kentucky (yes namesaked for his ancestors). He got the old tobacco barn that was built over 100 years ago and then started taking down old barns in other people’s farms in exchange for the wood he salvaged. He expanded his quest to taking down old general stores and apothecaries. The barn got fat with wood, fireplaces, doors, cabinets, and antiques.
When Joe Bowen completed his second bicycle trip across America (14,000 miles; his first one @23 and second @63 years of age), he came home and delved into his hoard of recycled wood and other great finds. He built his beautiful three bedroom, three full baths, one half bath and double full length porches. In the Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter and Holidays, his house would be full with his daughters, grandchildren, in-laws and friends… the family getaway.
