  1. Who came up with the idea to have your own paint line? Which color is your favorite?
  2. Do you ever pull in more crew members than just the five of you? If so, how do you decide how many?
  3. Where did you all learn the most skilled aspects of your jobs, like salvaging the high-altitude church clock?

#TQT 1/12/17:

  1. When you salvage exterior pieces do you have to get a permit from the city or town you’re working in? Or are there certain procedures you have to follow before the fun stuff can begin?
  2. Enjoyed seeing you guys in Lexington! Are the winter months lean for salvage jobs for Black Dog or do they keep coming in?
  3. Love the show! Do you ever have outtakes from filming that you can show? Bet they would be goodies!

#TQT 12/22/16:

  1. I’ve gathered up 3 old Farmall tractor front grills. Not sure if I’m going to paint or leave as is. What would you do with them, Tay?
  2. Love the show and love the dogs. Do you have shirts or other items we can buy where so much goes towards a rescue mission?
  3. Who gets “bleeped” most during the show?

#TQT 12/8/16:

  1. I know Black Dog Salvage is much older than the show. How did the show start? Was Black Dog approached? Is there a story there?
  2. Can you tell me the best way to clean a barn door without losing the age-old patina?
  3. Do you see the episodes before air date and do you have any input on editing?

  1. What do ya’ll do on the long road trips to break the boredom on the road? license plate tag, slug bug?
  2. What is the most unique piece or salvage you guys have done and why?
  3. I’m always amused by the “serious face” shot at the end of the opening intro of the show. Knowing how well you all get along, and how much fun and laughter you enjoy, I wonder how many “takes” it took to get that shot. And whose idea is it to go with the “serious face”? Smiles are much more natural for you guys!

  1. OK, I have a niece, who is a famous artist. Let’s just say her work is displayed and used on another “fixer upper” show. She is adorable…very shy…but LOVES Black Dog…especially Tay…So, Tay, how old are you?? Do you have a girl? She doesn’t know I am asking you this…my niece would die!!!
  2. My wife and I love your show and we have watched every episode (at least twice). The weekly projects are my favorite but I also like watching you guys take apart old buildings and watching the different methods of Mike and Robert when it comes to “getting it out and getting it on the truck.” My question is for Tay… Whose methods do you think works best for the benefit of the company? Your Dad’s or Roberts?
  3. Hi guys love you all can’t wait to visit! You all make such amazing things out of the old things you finds or recover, do you and or Tay, have pieces that you’ve made in your own homes, and if you do, would you be willing to share, I understand if you would rather keep it private, no problem! Again love the show, and love to buy you all a beer one day!! Roll tide!

#TQT 12/15/16:

  1. I bought a metal ceiling tile from Black Dog and am wondering what I can do to keep the peeling paint from chipping off. I think if I start scraping off the loose pieces, there won’t be any paint left. Is there any hope?
  2. We wondered where you guys stay when you’re on the road for jobs that last two or three days?
  3. I truly enjoy all the personal insight you two bring to the Thursday interviews. Love the puppies! Who do they belong to and where do they live when not “performing”?

#TQT 10/27/16:

  1. When you salvage an item, are you already picturing something to transform it into, or is that something that comes later when it’s been in the shop a while? Which do you enjoy more – on the road salvage or inventing something new out of pieces at the shop? Love the show!!!
  2. What besides building stuff and work do you like to do outside of Black Dog Architectural Salvage? Are any of you avid readers? If so what kind of books or what are your favorite authors?
  3. I enjoy and respect what you all do. Louisville Kentucky has a lot old empty buildings you should look into. My question is what is the best way to remove old base boards without chipping the wood?
