HELP. Corn Cob Blasting is Ruining the Logs 23 Replies

I'm working with a log home company to restain our home, which was built in 2002. The original finish was a sashco cascade and did marginaly ok for durability. I contracted with the same log home company to re-stain it this year and use sascho transformation. They power washed it and then applied multiple coats of transformation... long story short it made it look lousy. Sashco recommends corn cobing the old stuff off before apply transformation, cuz the old stuff will bleed through.The company…Continue

Question/Opinions about Log Home Finish 8 Replies

My wife and I just moved back to western NY and have been trying to find a house with some property for months now with no luck.  However, this weekend we finally found a house we really like and it happens to be a log home.  The home is approximately 1,700 SF and was built in 1979.  It seems to be in good condition, lot of updates on the interior and maintenance seems good for the ordinary stuff.  My main question is with the exterior finish of the house.  According to the realtor, 1/2 of the…Continue

New log home owner with an interior wall cleaning question 8 Replies

Hello! I am new to the forum and new to being a log home owner.  My wife and I purchased a 40 year old chinked log home about a month ago in Western North Carolina.  We are just loving being able to live in our log home.  It's just got so much character and a feel that you can't get in a conventional stick built home. I've been doing little maintenance jobs around the house and am looking to tackle a larger job.  My interior logs are really looking their age.  They're graying from dust, dirt,…Continue

Saw this on another forum today and thought it was a good insight to share with this group as well.  When developing a timeline for a construction project, Mother Nature is a force to be reckoned with, but difficult to put in to hours/days of anticipated delays. Building!Continue

New Roof - Caulk or Not Caulk 6 Replies

We are in the final stages of replacing  the asphalt roof on our log home.  Because of the design of the previous roof, it was necessary to cut out some of the logs along the dormers, remove the old shingles then insert a 4" x 4" cedar timber (see photo). The roofing contractor is adamant that I do not caulk the bottom of the timber where it comes in contact with the asphalt; the top of the timber will be caulked however.  I live in a wooded area so debris, leaves, seeds from the trees along…Continue
