Hi,Ok so this is my first time trying this out.

I was wondering if anyone would know the estimated cost of cob blasting a 1900 sq ft ranch style log home. The house was built in 1994 and has never been recoated but is in pretty decent shape. I tried power washing one end but it removes part of the finishing fairly easy creating a spotted looked. I wanted the finish to have a like new look again and I just don’t think I’ll get those results from power washing.
I am disappointed that, immediately after signing up, I get about 10 spam emails (none of which are LogHome related) in the course of 5 minutes. Not cool LogHome, not cool.Continue

Recently had our log deck rail replaced. I would like to avoid post caps for the time being as I like how it looks as they sit. That said, the investment still needs to be protected. Anyone have any advise on chemically sealing the rail post log ends? Any experience with products like PermaChinks Log End Seal (only experience I have with it is it's price point $$$$)? Any suggestions for alternative methods such as Thompsons Water seal or Polyurethane?Continue

New member on here, and have looked pretty extensively at past posts trying to find some direction... I am building a real rustic log cabin (no running water or electricity) out of logs that I have milled on 3 sides, 8" X 10" so stack will be flat on flat. I am considering using fiberglass insulation cut into 8" wide strips to place between the logs for "sealant" or air gap closure if/when the logs move.Has anyone done this and did it work out OK?Thanks in advance,CarlContinue
Had a phone call yesterday from a person in Oak Island, NC looking for someone to work on a log home. Needing some logs repaired/replaced. She is not sure of the log species or the original log manufacturer. If anyone is interested in working on this home please email me at email@example.com. I'll pass your information along. Thank you!Continue
