Beware of recommendations

My wife and I bought a log cabin package from Original Log Cabin company who also advertises on this site. The rep we bought the cabin from recommended a builder who could deliver a turnkey product. We were then invited to a presentation, after we bought the cabin, which we attended. The recommended contractor was there making a presentation for the company. To get to my point, initially this contractor met us on site and we discussed where to build on our property. We signed on and gave him a…Continue

Sheetrock/drywall on 2x4 framing and insulation

Hi all,I am new to log home construction, but not new to the construction industry. I am looking to add drywall about 8' up the walls on the main floor (wifey wants to "brighten it up"). 1) I am aware of the expansion and contraction of the logs, but I am curious if that mostly plays into "newer" logs. This home was built in 1977 so....and I may be wrong here...the logs may have done most of their contraction/settling by now?2) I will be installing insulation in the 2x4 walls. Do I need a vapor…Continue

Carpenter Bee's

Carpenter Bee season is here! Carpeter bees are large (1 inch) yellow and black bees which become active in early spring. They resemble bumble bees but do not live in colonies, have fewer hairs and no pollen sacs one the hind legs. They appear around homes and are a nuisance. Although it is rare to be stung by one, their sheer size is scary and people stay clear of them. Their nest is much more of concern. These nests, if left untreated, will result in extensive structural damage and will…Continue

Selling a Custom Log Home

We built the log home of our dreams. Put our hearts, souls and a lot of time, sweat and love into every detail. Loved it! Planned to live there the rest of our lives there, but life took a different path and we had to move. It is a wonderful home with tons of special features and lots of character. Set in a beautiful private wooded setting with tons of wildlife, yet only minutes to the big city - hard to find these days! Everyone who sees it loves it and many express they would love to buy it…Continue
