DIY Interior Improvements - Window Treatments 12 Replies

Did you ever wonder why most of the homes featured in the log magazines rarely show functional window treatments?  Truth is photographers want and need to capture as much openness, natural lighting and scenery as possible to compliment their photography.  Unfortunately this practice does not provide the log home consumer with much insight in evaluating window treatment ideas.  The end result, those of us who live in log homes have had to deal with this on our own usually ending up torn between…Continue

Cob blasting vs. Sanding vs. Pressure washing 16 Replies

I'm refinishing a log home and every vendor is telling me something different about the best way to remove the stain from my house. I'm probably not inclined to go the pressure washing route even though it would be cheapest, but really at a loss as to the respective benefits of cob blasting vs. hand sanding (versus perhaps also blasting using some other media). Any input you have would be greatly appreciated.
