While I'm online here, I just want to send up a big Thank you to Charis at Sascho. We primarily use Sansin products which we love, but were called to do caulking on a house recently stained by another company using Sikkens. We had trouble locating a caulk that would be compatible with the Sikkens stain during the timeline the homeowner wanted the caulking completed. Charis investigated and gave us specifics on when & how we could use Sascho's Conceal Textured Caulk. Following her guidelines… Continue

Hey Jackie!  Thanks for the shout!  Great to hear from another Okie.  We are located in the northeast side of Norman.  What hit our house has still not been declared a tornado - just straight line winds.  It all turned out good for us, just delayed closing a couple of months.

Thanks Jackie! Appreciate the tips.....We are going to have to wait till next Spring to attempt the staining....Winter is fast approaching us here in the Northeast....suppose to get our first snow tonight.....calling for 3-7 inches for us! Not looking forward to this so soon...but we are use to the long Maine winters!!

We don't get much humidity here in Maine .....maybe about 2 weeks out of a summer and the rest is fairly good and dry....But these staining products sound great.....We shall do our research and thank you for helping out too....

Have a great day!!

Good luck with your new cabin....

Our cabin logs have never been stained. We used years ago

some kind of a sealer on them. Our North side needs attention.

We are looking into some stains for the spring......Any suggestions

to what we should use? Our cabin is almost 29 years old......We

should have done something years ago. The logs we cut ourselves.

They are cedar logs. We love the old look of them.....but time to think

about staining for protection......

At 1:03pm on October 26, 2011, Julie Anne Brown said…

Jackie....I just looked at your beautiful log home! How lovely it

is.....I am a newby here on this site....and their are so many

beautiful will take a bit to go look at them all.....Yours

I agree with Terry & Shelley and hope you stay and offer advice and friendship. This website is great because of people like you and Terry & Shelley and is why I come here, a passion for all log homes.

Jackie, Sorry to hear you're leaving the site as I think those in a business such as yourself can offer great advice to individuals needing it. Yes, it's disheartening some of the comments being made; trust me, we've been targeted more than once for building a 'log sided' home instead of full log. But those commenting are not paying for our dream home nor will they be responsible for future maitenance on it. We made the decision that was best for us. They can just get over it!!! Unfortunate for them, they don't have the luxury of choosing who qualifies as a member of this community; but wedo have the choice not to read their posts.

Thank you so much! We are definitely on our way...our log shell should go up the end of this week (weather permitting), and we are beyond excited!! I enjoyed looking at your you restore log homes for a living? Sounds like a great job!
