New log construction, 8X12 D logs with double row of 3/8 Emseal, foam backer-rod used in all checks with Sascho Log Jam, then finished with two coats of Lifeline Ultra stain/and two topcoats. I went back in troubled areas and recaulked, but i am still getting some leaks to my disappointment.

Our floor plan shows the entry/foyer looking directly at the den/family room when you enter. We are considering placing a free standing wood stove/pellett stove between the two, without encasing it in brick or stone. Either side will be open, no walls. It will only show the stove and the black pipe to the ceiling. Does anyone have that in their home or do you have any thoughts about planning it that way? We don't the rustic look. Continue

I believe this fellow is the former owner of Tennessee Log Homes. This business went bankrupt. I have found court issues where a loan , over a million dollars was defaulted on.
