"We had them also - lots of mousetraps under the porch - we got lots. The other thing was they were also getting in thr dryer vent until we installed a wire mesh "cage" type thing. Haven't had and for over a year now."
"I tell so many people that. :-) Are overnight temps above 40? You'll want to make sure of that, too. The lower the temp, the slower the moisture is to evaporate and the stain to cure.
No, labels rarely say anything about those specific…"
"You told me to get one awhile ago! :-) No humidity at all - as a matter of fact the last 2 weeks or so have been in the 40s and 50s and warming up this week. Will the lable say silicone or wax or is there a fancy word they might…"
"Depending on the humidity the last few days, you might wait a bit longer to see if that reading will go down. Most oil-based semi-transparents are breathable, but check to make sure it doesn't include any waxes or silicones. Those are the worst…"
"Thanks so much. We are in Western Maine. Not much rain this spring but Sunday, Monday & Tuesday it rained. Dry & cloudy Wednesday and part of Thursday, sunny today (Friday). The deck was already cleaned and sanded…"
"That will depend on your location. :-) In Tucson, AZ, 12 would be high. In Alaska, 12 would be low. Have you already done the cleaning on the deck, or is it awaiting cleaning still? Power washing will increase that reading. Have you had any…"
"Judy and Lee. I understand you have a Katahdin log home with white cedar wall logs? I love the Katahdin homes! I am looking at building a log home and can't decide to go with a pressure treated white pine or white…"
Does anyone know anything about a heat exchanger that would replace the bathroom fan and reduce the moisture on all the windows - not just the bathroom? I believe it might be called a Panasonic Whisper Green. Doesn't have to be that exact one though.Anyone familiar with this sort of thing??See More
"We have Andersen windows throughout our UNCHINKED log home. The emperatures here, especally th year, have been around MINUS 10 degrees F, so I think our cold and your cold are very simialr. I also firmly believe your issue is excess humidity. As the…"
"I thought we were chinkless but really I have no idea. We now are running a few fans to circulate the air and that seems to have helped. It is also warmer outside so I don't know if that helps or not. At least it is not in the minus…"
"We keep the house at 55 when we are not there. We arrive up there and the windows are clear as can be, so putting the heat up is useless, IN MY HUMBLE OPINION - not to mention the price of propane these days. Yikes! We now turn on the ceiling fan to…"
Hello Folks, Perhaps you should move to the beach in Delaware to avoid condensation. Just kidding. Fire up that wood stove or fireplace and that con evaporate condensation in that climate because the windows are doing their job so,take a look at your moisture sources and ventilation systems.

Hi! Yes our windows are Andersen. I need to check with the contractor as to the door paint. It was a mix. The sled table was from Country Sampler Magazine. Here is the link for the tissue box.
Thank you for your kind comment on our home. It was a life long dream for us. Our home is pine. The logs were supplied by the Mountaineer Log and Siding Company. It is a true log home, not log siding. The stain is Woodguard Honey 2000. Thanks again for you kind comment. Alexis Dyke
Hi Judith, you had asked a question about our stain. We used a medium red-tone brown by Sashco! They are a great group and will send you out numerous free samples! Hope you're doing well and getting some good fishing in! :-)
