I am the third owner of a cabin that was built in the early 1980's. As far as I know the stain is the original and it is good under the front porch and the carport, but the west and south side I have black showing and in some areas the stain is very thin. I am living of fumes (very low income), but would like to take care of my home. Does anyone have any ideas on how to save some funds on getting my cabin restained? The cabin is approximately 1200 sq ft. and I was given 1 quote for cob…Continue

I asked a question about dumb waiters two years ago (yes, we are still in design phase) and Wood Waiter was suggested. I see their ads in the magazines and have looked through their website. Their product is reasonably priced... just wondering if anyone has used them or heard anything good or bad. On a side note, it's my hope that two more years from now I'll finally be enjoying my log home and not still asking questions about building!Continue

The cabin I am living in has the original stain from 20 years ago and I am looking for a company to come in and either blast it or sand it and restain it. I live in NC. And would appreciate a list of certified companies that could give me a quote. I was also wondering if you power washed it if you need to do any sanding to smooth out the roughness?Continue
Looking for tips on a reasonable set up for a homeowner on blasting pots and compressors. Looked into renting tow-behind compressors and large pots but they would be running around $1000 a week. Probably going to need the equipment 4 or more times that so maybe I should just buy. any tips?Continue

Just ran across a web site developed in 2013. Titled: B Burton Webb Strategic Business Advisors. Now instead of being a log home manufacturer, he is a business consultant. 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. He was fired from working with the Mayor of Knoxville. His home at the Tamarack Resort in Idaho, was sold on a short sale. His home in…Continue
