Is there anybody with log home experience that we can pay to consult us with our newly purchased log home in Rogue River Oregon? We don't mind doing the work it's just we don't know what exactly needs done? But we do know something needs to be done.

any ideas about this discoloration? 4 Replies

Hey there!  We are looking at purchasing this log home built in 1980 in New York state.  Can anyone tell from the pictures (southeast exposure) whether the dark coloration is anything serious, or just a matter of cleaning or restaining?  I've been reading about testing with bleach, but we haven't gotten to do that...We had been thinking of using a pigmented stain (like red or green) in the future.We also noticed that the current owners put thin strips of black foam between logs inside; is that…Continue

Need some help in Massachusetts 5 Replies

Went down a bad road with Southland log homes.  I believed in their sales pitch, signed a contract with an $11,000.00 deposit paid in February 2017, BIG MISTAKE.  I have yet to receive building plans and my efforts to contact their recommended builder have been a challenge.  After many e-mails and phone calls (not a good sign) I did receive a total project cost estimate however it was over 30% higher than budget.  The total project budget is based off the cost estimator tool on Southland's web…Continue

IF WE HAD IT TO DO OVER, MAY I MAKE A SUGGESTION? 5 Replies

We would not choose Southland Log Homes and we would not use their builder. We would use a reputable Log Home Provider and we would find an experienced reputable builder that could build the shell, and find an experienced reputable local contractor that could finish. Actually, we now have a wonderful local contractor who is picking up after the loser #1 Southland area contractor for South Tennessee and North Alabama deserted us by lying telling us he has "closed his doors" by cowardly text and…Continue
