Hello,My wife and I are long time log home dwellers. For most all of those years we have had the dumb cluster fly problems. Our current home has windows facing South floor to cathedral ceiling. Fly and ladybug heaven. A month or so back I bought a ultraviolet indoor bug zapper. So often I try things such as the zapper that don't work. Well bingo. The flys were gone in two days.

New Here 2 Replies

Hi everyone, I'm hoping to build a small log home in southwest Florida where I currently live for retirement. It's easy finding companies that sell log cabins/home kits but not someone who will actually build the thing on my land. Can anyone point to towards an actual log home builder/contractor?  BTW is the difference between log -cabin- and log -home- referring to square footage or something else?Thanks!billContinue
