Insulation between logs 1 Reply

New member on here, and have looked pretty extensively at past posts trying to find some direction... I am building a real rustic log cabin (no running water or electricity) out of logs that I have milled on 3 sides, 8" X 10" so stack will be flat on flat.  I am considering using fiberglass insulation cut into 8" wide strips to place between the logs for "sealant"  or air gap closure if/when the logs move.Has anyone done this and did it work out OK?Thanks in advance,CarlContinue

Cob Blasting - estimated cost? 26 Replies

I was wondering if anyone would know the estimated cost of cob blasting a 1900 sq ft ranch style log home. The house was built in 1994 and has never been recoated but is in pretty decent shape. I tried power washing one end but it removes part of the finishing fairly easy creating a spotted looked. I wanted the finish to have a like new look again and I just don’t think I’ll get those results from power washing.
