Mozark Mountain Works
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.
Robin and Michael McClintock moved from New York City to Tucker County, West Virginia 20+ years ago. They found abandoned farmland within the Monongahela National Forest which includes much of 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 large farmhouse on Mozark Mountain.
Trained as artists, believers that the impact of the man-made environment is as essential as the natural environment. MMW focuses on custom objects and projects whether adaptive reuse historic building projects, custom furniture from reclaimed materials, historic tax credit filing, vintage vehicle restoration, exhibition installation and their herd of heirloom fainting goats.
If we need something, we make it. We are resourceful and dedicated. We believe in bringing the old and discarded back to life again. 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.
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.
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.
