THE MOZARK MOUNTAIN STORY

Mozark Mountain Works is a custom design + build wood and metal shop nestled in the Allegheny Mountains.

We believe a life well designed is a life well lived.

The McClintocks

Robin and Michael McClintock moved from New York City to their farm in Tucker County, West Virginia almost 20 years ago. Eyes closed, they pointed to a spot on the map, and bought the parcel of land that is Mozark Mountain. They spent their first West Virginia autumn camped in a tent, building the one-room cabin where they’d spend winter. Now, that cabin is the dining room of their farmhouse on Mozark Mountain.

Our Philosophy

If we need something, we make it. We make our dinner from vegetables grown in our own garden, on the table we made, in the house we continually build outward. We trade locally, and we believe in bringing the old and discarded back to life again. Everything we make is informed by the idea that form, function, and design are deeply connected and inseparable. We believe a life well designed is a life well lived.

Tucker County

Mozark Mountain is our home, our place of work, and our ever-evolving work of art. Nestled in the Monongahela National Forest of Tucker County, West Virginia, this living mountain grows and changes with each new season. With our own hands, we’ve built or tended our farm home, our 5,000 sq. foot wood and metal workshop, our garden, and our 18 fainting goats. We built our own wood shop to build our home and furniture, and we built our own metal shop to keep our early 19th century tooling and machinery maintained for heavy use.

WHO WE ARE

The Founders

Robin McClintock

Founder

Born in New York City and educated there as a painter and printmaker, Robin balanced business as a general contractor and living as a New Yorker from her Tribeca studio, never dreaming of leaving her home-town until she discovered West Virginia. Now Robin paints and prints from a 1920’s schoolhouse in rural Tucker County while operating Mozark Mountain Works with her husband, Michael. Her work is deeply inspired by industrial architecture and the natural landscape. For Robin, the details are everything… and everything is in the details.
Michael McClintock

Founder

Michael's focus has always been problem solving and creative engineering - whether as a student of sculpture at Skowhegan in college, or as a skilled architectural replication millworker for historical restorations in New York City. There's nothing Michael can't do or make, and his architectural drawings of Ellis Island have even found their home in the National Archives. In West Virginia, Michael has focused on life with his wife, Robin, in the great outdoors, while building his own 5000 sq ft. wood and metal shop.

We’re excited to hear from you!
