Dream house

I've always wanted to purchase a log house because I think it's just splendid to look at from the outside as well as the interiors. Right now, I'm saving up so I can fulfil my dream and embark on my dream project by the beginning of 2020.The other day, I reached quite late back from office, I was evidently tired and fell asleep on the couch. I had a dream in which I was submerged in a water body but there was no undercurrent so it was certain that I was in a pool. I floated upwards to see…Continue

Just wanted to say Hi! 2 Replies

Hi Everyone.. I'm a new member to the forum and just wanted to say Hi! My story in relation to Log Homes is a little unusual in that I currently live in the UK ( not exactly somewhere known for log homes!) but I've bought land in Transylvania, Romania where my husband and I are retiring to in 2020. We're currently having our dream log house built on our plot In Transylvania and it's been  quite a journey so far. Firstly the bureaucracy In Romania is beyond belief so just getting the Building…Continue

Bowed Marvin windows

 Our logs are milled on our house built in 2002.  The builder used Marvin wood clad double hung windows.  We were advised nothing special needed to be done around them for settling because the logs wouldn’t shrink much, if at all.  Pretty much from day one, the windows in the stick built, logsided portion of the house opened okay, but the windows in the full logs never really did.  I noticed they were mostly difficult to latch as the top and bottom didn’t align easily. Now in the last few…Continue

Small Log Cabin Storage Tips 1 Reply

15 steps to get the most from a small home.Small log homes remain popular for two reasons: They’re affordable and provide close-quarter comfort. Squeezing everything into a cozy design can be challenging, however. When planning your small home, it helps to have a couple of tricks up your sleeve.1. Borrow space within an open floor plan. The fewer walls, the better. Open spaces are more comfortable and allow for versatility. Open floor plans also make your spaces work twice as hard.2. Keep it…Continue

Replacing windows 1 Reply

Hello!  We need to replace a bay window in our 30 year old log home.  We want to replace it with a picture window.  We received an estimate of $11,000.  That seems really high to me.  We live in NH.  Does anyone have any feedback as to whether or not that is a realistic cost to expect?  It is a large window, but...I find it hard to believe it costs that much to replace one window.  We plan on getting at least one more estimate, but I thought I would ask here as well.  Thanks!!  :)Continue

Log Home Exterior Restoration 3 Replies

My wife and I are about to totally redo the outside of our log home that we purchased last November. I've been researching for several weeks and I think I have a decent game plan together, however, before I start spending money and breaking a sweat I'd like to run my plan by some more experienced folk to make sure I'm not way off base. It's a little long so feel free to skim, I appreciate any guidance or comments.House construction & condition:Home is a butt & pass style log home with…Continue
