Starting a salvage business was not intentional. Mike needed a garage built; Robert came to give him advice. The garage was never built, but the two found kindred souls in each other, having both served in the Navy.

After lamenting the pending demolition of a local 1892 landmark filled with architectural details, they took a chance, made a salvage offer and began saving the house piece by piece. In a warehouse Mike had rented for another project, with Mike’s 1st black dog (Molly) , they turned over an old vinyl sign – wrote ‘SALVAGE’ – and moments later a customer pulled into the parking lot. They haven’t looked back since. Three years later they outgrew the building and purchased a 40,000 square warehouse next to the Memorial Bridge near Grandin Village in Roanoke, VA. Over the last decade, the business has evolved from a down and dirty salvage warehouse to an interior design showroom featuring architectural details, custom designs, local artists and vendors.

Mike brings his creative eye to the Black Dog Design Shop, fabricating one of kind custom pieces and Robert offers astute business acumen, sound construction advice and long range vision. This coupled with the support of (understanding) families and a strong belief in supporting locally owned businesses, has been a recipe for success.
