This September, Barnwood Living will open a new Boneyard in Texas. Together with developer David Snell, the new Boneyard will be part of a shopping experience in the small town halfway between Austin and Houston.

“We have big plans,” Snell told “We aim to bring a new shopping experience to Round Top, initially with the fall show. We have a number of vendors who will set up in tents and permanent 40 x 240-foot structures – similar to what you see at Blue Hills. In the middle of the property will be a timber frame barn and a cabin stocked with Mark’s boneyard. Those structures will be for sale.”

Snell’s plans include a destination shopping complex, with a wedding venue and more. The location was previously known as Chelsea Meadows.

“We are excited to come to Round Top,” Bowe said. “I’ve been to three state fairs and Disney, but nothing compares to what we saw in Round Top. We have many fans in Texas and think Round Top is an ideal place to showcase our timber structures and cabins.”

The new Boneyard will help Barnwood Living better serve the quickly growing market of Texas.

“The Texas German heritage is so prevalent,” Bowe said. “We probably have six jobs waiting for us in Texas. We love the architecture and vernacular.”

The new yard is tentatively scheduled to open September 20, during the town’s very popular annual antique show.
