One of my favorite places to spend hours in Roanoke is Black Dog Salvage! We are so excited to learn of this new program and hope you will enjoy it!
ROANOKE, Virginia (October 25, 2012) – Architectural enthusiasts and fans of Virginia-based Black Dog Salvage Inc., Sally the “black dog”, and lovers of historical treasures have a new way to share their passion when the DIY Network premieres the original documentary-style series, Salvage Dawgs, Thursday, Nov. 8 at 11pm EST. and again Friday, Nov. 9 at 9pm EST.

  
Co-produced by Trailblazer Studios and Figure 8 Films, Salvage Dawgs chronicles the adventures of Robert Kulp and Mike Whiteside, owners of Southwestern Virginia-based Black Dog Salvage.  Each episode leaves audiences laughing, inspired, and amazed as they stay just ahead of the wrecking ball to reclaim a wide range of vintage architectural elements and oddities. The salvaged materials go in a dazzling number of directions, from being incorporated into new “old” houses to being transformed into one-of-a-kind furniture and art featured on their warehouse floor and website


“We are saving America, one house part at a time,” said owner Robert Kulp. “It’s satisfying to know that these architectural treasures will live on and be appreciated across the country.”

In the premiere episode of Salvage Dawgs, the Black Dog crew salvages the Izard House, a 14-room farmhouse built in the 1890s that was said to have served as a schoolhouse and post office; the center of a long lost farming community in the mountains of Southwest Virginia.
