Dumb Fly Problem 7 Replies

Hello,My wife and I are long time log home dwellers. For most all of those years we have had the dumb cluster fly problems. Our current home has windows facing South floor to cathedral ceiling.

We do still get one or two, but the machine makes short order of them. No solution for the ladybugs yet. Open to ideas…Continue

Mold/Mildew on logs - never ending battle... 25 Replies

It seems a never ending battle with mold/mildew on my log home.  The home is about 30' tall at the peak so it's difficult to get on ladders each spring/fall and scrub the logs to clean them.  If I just spray on Log Wash, it doesn't do anything unless I scrub.I just stained my home 2 years ago.  I pressure washed it last summer and washed it again earlier this spring.  I use Log Wash.Does anyone have any suggestions on how to prevent this?  Or is this just the log home life and I should get used…Continue

Importance of Electrical Inspection

Hi all, I'm David from Toronto. One of my neighbour's apartment caught fire last month. Luckily, no one was injured during the accident. Nothing much happened except some insignificant damages inside the apartment.Next day, they hired an electrician from an electric repair service for the inspection. The inspection figured out outdated wiring is the reason behind the fire. The old wiring couldn't…Continue
