ok, so i have 2 existing lights. both of which are mounted on logs. the one has the box cut into the log and the light is has gaps on top and bottom, due to the roundness of the logs. the other which the box is mounted on the outside of the log and the previous owner simply cut a piece of wood around the box and screwed it to the logs so there were gaps all around and it looked really crappy. does anyone make some sorta trim piece designed half log siding? Im crafty enough to make something, but i dont have aton of free time. and i just want to remedy the problem now.. ohh and i dont wanna just caulk around it to seal it. i want somethign that looks like the builder knew what he was doing. thanks for any suggestions!!
what my builder did was make a rectangular bloch left it square on one side and chamfered the edges on the other side.He then chiseled out the log for this block to fit in flat.a couple screws and a little caulk it is water tight. i can post a pic later this afternoon if i didnt explain it well enough
Without seeing your actual lights let me make a suggestion that is different based on the looks of your logs. Why not take rough hewn lumber about 2 in x 8 in by lets say 16 in to attach vertically across two logs. Cut the 4 corners at an angle. You could then get thin mount electrical boxes to flush mount into a hole cut in the board. Let the board become decorative spanning two logs. Either stain it like the logs or paint them to match your window frame color. The light could go towards the top or bottom depending on which way the lense faces. Once again depending on the style of your lights this might make them more decorative then just sticking out of a log. The resulting gap(s) behind the board would not matter. Cut a quick mockup out of cardboard.
