Need Advice: Want a simple build I can do by hand, including moving the logs. HELP PLEASE. 9 Replies

Hi All!It is my dream to build a small cabin (maybe 800-1100 sq feet) using logs that I can cut down and hand carry with my wife. I saw one Mountain Men episode where Marty made a "trapper's cabin" without letting the logs sit for a year. He cut them down and threw them right on on the structure. He built the entire home, which was small, by himself in one month. He even left the bark on the one side of them that would be facing the elements. Basically, I want to do the same thing, but probably…Continue

HiWe have been living in a log home for 6 years now. The house is in the fields and each fall, starting with September we have mice inside the house. It seems that they use the insulation channels inside the logs to move around.Any recommendation for a sealant that cannot be chewed by mice?Thanks!Continue

Can you share your log home's HERS rating? 1 Reply

Hi All,We are looking to build a log home in MA, but the new stretch energy codes require a HERS rating of 55 or less.  We have been told by a few people that this will be impossible to achieve, while the log home company we are using insists it will be fine.I know each home is different, but might any of you be willing to share what HERS rating your log home received when initially built, so we have some frame of reference for what kinds of ratings a log home might be able to achieve?Continue

Mold on log cabin - help please 7 Replies

Hi, we stained our log cabin just 6 months ago but have recently noticed a mold growing mainly around the bottom, and on the tops of some of the upper logs (see pictures below). It seems that it can be scrapped off to some degree but I'm not sure if it is under or over the stain. What do you think? Is it serious or time sensitive and what's the best thing to do? Thank you…Continue

Painting Kitchen Cabinets - What color?? 11 Replies

Hi all... We've just installed some used kitchen cabinets that will need painting - the dilemma of coarse is the color ...   I see many pictures of flat black cupboards in log homes that look relatively acceptable, but I'd rather find something that I like even more. I see that there are zillions of pictures on here but I have dialup - so cannot sift through them very efficiently. Anyone here have some pics on thier profile of painted cabinets and feel that they have found a really nice color…Continue

Dang Pictures! 8 Replies

22 years ago we built our log home, staining on the inside with Sikkens Interior, two coats. We are thinking of selling soon (it's been a great home - it's just too much for us at our age!).  When I take wall decor down (pictures, etc.) the log behind it is a much lighter color than the log not covered by the wall decor. I knew this would happen, but what can I do to get a more uniform color on the interior logs? Let me rephrase that - what can I do that is the easiest and the least amount of…Continue

Insurance Coverage for Bird or Insect Damage 1 Reply

Hello,   Was just wondering if you any of you have homeowner insurance policies that cover damage to your infrastructure (logs, fascia, soffits, etc.) by birds or insects?  We talked to our agent and it seems there aren't companies in Michigan that will cover that kind of damage. Thanks in advance.Jim Continue
