Noise reduction 10 Replies

Does anyone have any experience in using carpet to soundproof a floor. Like many log houses our bedroom is under a second floor BR that has our ceiling as its floor. Sound travels perfectly between them and we are looking for some abatement. Does anyone have experience using soundproofing carpet pads under a carpet or rug. Does it have any significant advantages for the extra cost and does it work a little or well. The large rug up there does almost nothing and I'm looking for input before I…Continue

Log Production Time Schedule from Felling to Ready to Assemble Logs

Dear Log Home Neighborhood,Would someone like to explain, in layman's terms, what is the general schedule in terms of different processes and the time they take, that is required to produce ready to assemble logs, starting from the felling of living trees.The project I have in mind, is a very basic, remote log cabin which I would hope to have finished in the least time feasible, starting from self-supplied, fresh timber.This is in no ways a thought out project, and I'm simply considering…Continue

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

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

Chinking Weather 1 Reply

I'm finishing up washing my logs, and I'll hopefully stain this week.  I'm getting worried, though.  I need to chink, and the nightly temperatures are getting cold.  When is it just too late for the year?  How cold can it realistically be?  Continue

Removing stain from windows 3 Replies

I usually clean windows every weekend. For the last few weeks, I was staying with my grandmother in Toronto. The house was looking so dirty when I got back. It was dusty since there were no cleaning on those days I stay away from home. I cleaned the entire house But the only thing that made me sad is my windows. I feel disappointed after looking at the windows. It looks so dull. I believe that windows are the most important part of a home. If it's not cleaned properly it can bring a negative…Continue

Painting Kitchen Cabinets - What color?? 12 Replies

Hi all... We've just installed some used kitchen cabinets that will need painting - the dilemma of coarse is the color ...   I see many pictures of flat black cupboards in log homes that look relatively acceptable, but I'd rather find something that I like even more. I see that there are zillions of pictures on here but I have dialup - so cannot sift through them very efficiently. Anyone here have some pics on thier profile of painted cabinets and feel that they have found a really nice color…Continue
