Hi everyone. New owner of a 35 year old kit log home in southern California. This house has been neglected and now we (my wife, kids and I) have taken the reins and hope to get it back to looking great since we log the style and our view is more than worth the effort.After we moved in we discovered some log rot and had that replaced by Prolog Restoration who did a…Continue
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.
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

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
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
