Best way to add soffits 2 Replies

Hi everyone,This is my first post on here! I have quite a lot of work to do on my home and was looking for some advice on my current focus. This home was built by hand by the family I purchased it from, and it was finished back in 2010. Soffits were really only installed on one/one and a half sides of the home, but even when they were they were not completely flush. Naturally, critters moved in. I purchased the home in August of 2016 and we noticed them not too long after and have been dealing…Continue

Replacing windows 4 Replies

Hello!  We need to replace a bay window in our 30 year old log home.  We want to replace it with a picture window.  We received an estimate of $11,000.  That seems really high to me.  We live in NH.  Does anyone have any feedback as to whether or not that is a realistic cost to expect?  It is a large window, but...I find it hard to believe it costs that much to replace one window.  We plan on getting at least one more estimate, but I thought I would ask here as well.  Thanks!!  :)Continue

Dream house 1 Reply

I've always wanted to purchase a log house because I think it's just splendid to look at from the outside as well as the interiors. Right now, I'm saving up so I can fulfil my dream and embark on my dream project by the beginning of 2020.The other day, I reached quite late back from office, I was evidently tired and fell asleep on the couch. I had a dream in which I was submerged in a water body but there was no undercurrent so it was certain that I was in a pool. I floated upwards to see…Continue

Ways to make the home secure

Three homes on my street were robbed recently. It occurred during the early evening. I want to make my home more secure. My front door has got a deadbolt and a regular lock. The backdoor has a window that leads to the deck. It has got ground access too. Someone could probably break the window and unlock the deadbolt by reaching through.Can anyone suggest some ways to make the house more secure? My neighbor suggested…Continue

Bowed Marvin windows 1 Reply

 Our logs are milled on our house built in 2002.  The builder used Marvin wood clad double hung windows.  We were advised nothing special needed to be done around them for settling because the logs wouldn’t shrink much, if at all.  Pretty much from day one, the windows in the stick built, logsided portion of the house opened okay, but the windows in the full logs never really did.  I noticed they were mostly difficult to latch as the top and bottom didn’t align easily. Now in the last few…Continue
