"Yeah, that natural color from Sashco is definitely on the light side for sure (and I am in no way trying to continue to disagree) but lighter pigments like that are also very known for offering the absolute least protection on a log home and require…"

Profile Information

Tell us about yourself:
In 2013 at the age of 34 my wife and I purchased a very rustic (very rundown) 1940's Log cabin that was in serious need of some attention. The cabin is located in the beautiful Great North Woods of New Hampshire. We have since been slowly restoring the cabin to ensure that it is enjoyed for many more generations to come....Please enjoy the pictures which we have taken along every step of the way...
Are you lucky enough to be living in a log home?
No but this is our little getaway. No cell phone reception and we love it that way!
What timeframe are you looking to start your dream home?
