"Correct, you need a tow behind your truck Ingersol Rand or Sullair 185 or better.  A couple of more things to consider is that these beasts use a lot of diesel.  We often go through 50 gallons of diesel a day with our Sullair.  Sand…"

Colorado Log Home Finishing replied to Scott Lambert's discussion Cob Blasting - estimated cost?
"Also with square foot pricing, I have never seen someone measuring actually take the roundness of the log into account.  A 20 long x 20 foot high log wall is not equal to a 20 X 20 flat wall.  The 20 x 20 log wall is not 400 sq ft, you…"

Colorado Log Home Finishing replied to Jim's discussion what to coat the logs of my house with before I cover them up
"The 1700's paint is likely lead. Be careful not to scrape that stuff while you apply new product. You won't find any product today as durable as old lead based paint."

Colorado Log Home Finishing replied to Jim's discussion what to coat the logs of my house with before I cover them up
"So the logs will be covered and sealed and then covered again with siding?  If it's not going to be seen how about something like tar or concrete?"
