Staining Your Log Home

Staining Your Log Home.

Work Horizontally. Plan on applying your stain to one wall at a time, starting at the top and working completely across 3-4 logs high.

When the top 3-4 logs are stained, then move down the wall to the next 3-4 logs. Continue in a similar pattern to the bottom of the wall, working around doors and windows.

Clean any drip marks that may occur on lower logs to avoid overlap marks.

This consistency will help to eliminate the… Continue

The style and location of your home can affect stain longevity and the amount of maintenance required for your logs.

Eaves,porches, proper drainage and the position of your home on the lot all come into play.

Experts recommend a bare minimum of 24" eaves (36" or more is ideal), wrap around porches which are at least 10' deep and a foundatin that provides at least 12" to 18" of space betwwen the first course of logs and the ground.

These elements will help… Continue

Thanks Kelly
I am hoping to connect with as many suppliers and builders as possible.
I am developing a Solar Log Home Community in Central Florida and reaching out.
I need to build 7- Solar Log Homes for a "Green LifeStyle"  Community called Darian Estates.
Please pass this on to anyone you know that you think would be interested in collaborating with me.

Kelly, Thanks. No we're not in it yet. The weather's been a bit of a challenge. We finally have a roof, fascia, soffits, & gutters. Inside T & G is almost complete, drywall's up & painted, and tiled surfaces are complete. So, we're almost there; hoping to get CO before end of April.

Only if they are neutered. They still romp and wrestle; but don't bite or fight as it would be if they were still intact. When we first brought Henry home Oscar immediately accepted him as if knowing he was his off-spring. He took care of him, keeping him clean and really teaching him what he could get away with.

Henry has become the "hunter", Oscar is still gun shy. Henry is about as good as any pointer or setter, flushes grouse, etc. Both dogs are great fishing companions, they always try and catch the fish we release - quite commical.

Jacks are great. Oscar (smooth coat-short-legged black & white) sired Henry (rough-coat, mostly white with brown face and Yoda ears). We got pick of the litter. Two male JR's in the house - what were we thinking. Had to get them neutered, still there is never a dull moment. They really chase the chipmunks and squirrels at our cabin.

Want to buy our log home but it has such a small kitchen and the space for the refrigerator is for a small one. The bathroom hasn't ever been updated so we would have to replace the tub and sink. We love the home but the 2 major rooms don't measure up to the rest of the house.

Thank you for the welcome; we are going to look at our potential log home again tomorrow night; it's not big but we are pretty anxious about owning it if all goes well.
