We would not choose Southland Log Homes and we would not use their builder. We would use a reputable Log Home Provider and we would find an experienced reputable builder that could build the shell, and find an experienced reputable local contractor that could finish. Actually, we now have a wonderful local contractor who is picking up after the loser #1 Southland area contractor for South Tennessee and North Alabama deserted us by lying telling us he has "closed his doors" by cowardly text and…Continue

Window Dormer Issues

I need to replace the fascia boards on my gable window dormers. It appears they have been installed too close to the shingles and are rotting as a result. I also will need to replace a few pieces of log siding closest to the roof that also seems to contact the shingles. I know to cut them so there is more clearance between the wood and the roof, but am wondering if there is any other steps I should take.. I am also considering eliminating the log ends and putting vertical corner boards in place…Continue

Removing Sikkens Cetol Film Forming Stain 10 Replies

I need to strip Sikkens Cetol Stain off one side of my house. It was last applied about 6 years ago. I have been letting it weather intentionally hoping, it would come off easier. The person who applied it originally did a poor job removing the previous stain by pressure washing. There are many spots where you can tell the old stain was left on, and severe felting in some spots which the stain has adhered to and dried very hard on.I have tested pressure washing in a small area, using a sodium…Continue
