Mold on log cabin - help please 3 Replies

Hi, we stained our log cabin just 6 months ago but have recently noticed a mold growing mainly around the bottom, and on the tops of some of the upper logs (see pictures below). It seems that it can be scrapped off to some degree but I'm not sure if it is under or over the stain. What do you think? Is it serious or time sensitive and what's the best thing to do? Thank you…Continue

Painting Kitchen Cabinets - What color?? 11 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

Dang Pictures! 8 Replies

22 years ago we built our log home, staining on the inside with Sikkens Interior, two coats. We are thinking of selling soon (it's been a great home - it's just too much for us at our age!).  When I take wall decor down (pictures, etc.) the log behind it is a much lighter color than the log not covered by the wall decor. I knew this would happen, but what can I do to get a more uniform color on the interior logs? Let me rephrase that - what can I do that is the easiest and the least amount of…Continue

Insurance Coverage for Bird or Insect Damage 1 Reply

Hello,   Was just wondering if you any of you have homeowner insurance policies that cover damage to your infrastructure (logs, fascia, soffits, etc.) by birds or insects?  We talked to our agent and it seems there aren't companies in Michigan that will cover that kind of damage. Thanks in advance.Jim Continue

Prepping for Interior Stain - Removing Scuff Marks 7 Replies

Hello, everyone. Finishing our log home now. Have 12-inch rectangular logs of dead-standing Engelmann spruce and lodgepole pine; hand-hewn exterior and smooth flat on interior. Logs were erected back in the early fall and dried in fairly quickly, but just now getting to the interior staining. Any ideas on how to remove scuff marks, boot marks, mortar splashes, and other blotches from the logs?  It has been suggested that we use a sander with medium-grit paper to work out the scuff marks, etc.,…Continue
