New log construction, 8X12 D logs with double row of 3/8 Emseal, foam backer-rod used in all checks with Sascho Log Jam, then finished with two coats of Lifeline Ultra stain/and two topcoats. I went back in troubled areas and recaulked, but i am still getting some leaks to my disappointment.  I coulda, shoulda, woulda done better by extending the overhang further than 24" in hindsight, but this side of the cabin is windblown typically and 6' overhang might not have sufficed.  Any ideas on…Continue

fireplace location 9 Replies

Our floor plan shows the entry/foyer looking directly at the den/family room when you enter.  We are considering placing a free standing wood stove/pellett stove between the two, without encasing it in brick or stone. Either side will be open, no walls.  It will only show the stove and the black pipe to the ceiling.  Does anyone have that in their home or do you have any thoughts about planning it that way?  We don't the rustic look. Continue

Issue with Potential Log Home Purchase 10 Replies

Hello!I am looking at purchasing a 3300sq ft log home in NC and noticed a portion of the rear wall of the house is bowing where they installed a bay window. The house is listed for about 80k less than appraisal but will the bow in the wall get worse, should it be fixed, any idea how much to fix something like that? Wondering if I should make an offer, or just walk away from it.Thanks!ScottContinue

Heat Exchanger

Does anyone know anything about a heat exchanger that would replace the bathroom fan and reduce the moisture on all the windows - not just the bathroom?  I believe it might be called a Panasonic Whisper Green.  Doesn't have to be that exact one though.Anyone familiar with this sort of thing??Continue

New Strategic Business advisors 7 Replies

Just ran across a web site developed in 2013.  Titled:  B Burton Webb Strategic Business Advisors.  Now instead of being a log home manufacturer, he is a business consultant.  I believe this fellow is the former owner of Tennessee Log Homes.  This business went bankrupt.  I have found court issues where a loan , over a million  dollars was defaulted on.  He was fired from working with the Mayor of Knoxville.  His home at the Tamarack Resort in Idaho, was sold on a short sale.  His home in…Continue
