It's been a while since I've posted anything on Log Home U, but I wanted to share an exciting development!Disclaimer - I sell no log home products or services whatsoever.  I like to do things that are cheap, easy, and wickedly effective.A while back I got into a friendly back and forth with some sellers of liquid gold priced log home finishes where never once was what I posted as cheap and easy, scientifically refuted.  I did get a lot of "why would anyone build an expensive home and then not…Continue

Chinking, treatment and staining 2 Replies

We just finished constructing a log home in New Hampshire. We used real logs not treated and was wondering what the best treatment for bugs was. What the best way to chink it is and the best stain to use. Any guidance is appreciated.

refinishing 1950s log home interior 4 Replies

Posted question about painting long home white which got no response.  Really need to figure this out ASAP so here's another try.  Attached is an image of a 1950s log home I want to buy, but interior wood is dark and finished in high gloss.  I want to either paint white, of if this will rot the wood, I want to at least stain lighter in color or if I can remove finish all together, just leave it unfinished raw wood.  How do I go from Dark shine, to something more natural and lighter looking?…Continue
