Have any pictures of the mixed wood tongue and groove walls? We haven't decided on those yet! Thanks for info on the doors. Counter tops we are planning on stained concrete, think that will go well with the "cabin" feel.
Hello James, Thank you for the info. Any info from anyone experienced is greatly appreciated. I want to learn as much as possible and be well informed about every detail in this business. I've actually have been to Katahdin Cedar Log Homes website quite a few times, but I will definitely check out arbor wall site and let you know what I think. Thanks again! -Michele
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 keep things moving. We also have a couple of smaller fans going since they are pretty quiet. We do have a dehumidifier but it is rather noisy so I would rather not use it all the time. When we cook it seems to get worse. After showers we keep the bathroom door closed and the fan on. We are still working on it. Thanks for asking!
i am working with local species to Virginia Beach. White and red oak, Southern yellow pine, gum, and occasional cedar, walnut, cherry, pecan and locust. i have a 1000 Sqft kiln so i dry anything I cut unless otherwise specified. check out the website www.rustictimbercompany.com
Thanks James. I have had Pella here at my house and they are stating it is a not a window problem. i am looking into the air exchange system. Do you recommend i look to a log home builder to install or a hvac company? I am going to the Burlington VT Log Home show next weekend. Maybe i will find someone there!
Have not been on here for some time, as is obvious.
We are in the high desert, about 2 hours SE of Bend. Our property is 40 acres of sagebrush, rabbitbrush, greasewood & a 5 acre lake with approx another 8 acres in wetland. Great duck habitat, we also have nesting Sandhill cranes, pheasant & quail. The log portion of my home is built, a 24'x26' shell. We are adding on this year, but I am not doing log construction due to no skills in that arena, as well as other things. Looking forward to having the first addition done later this year & maybe move in not too distant future.
Hi, thinking about a 1600-1700 sq ft log house, Pine, cypress, spruce dead standing , I would like to get the longest lasting as far as having the constant staining or resealing, insect resistance,Porch on three sides. talked to a few different co. and got thier reasons for why theirs is best, A lot of the finish inside work I can do our get done through local trades, but putting up the logs seems to be something I can't find around here, Charles County Md., so far as cost have been given average of around 45-50 and labor to get under roof, Not including the metal roof was 22-25, still trying to make a decision on log type. once i decide on log type just need set of plans to turn into county to get permission to start.Single level over a basement, I'll have the basement built by local trades, porches floors to be cement. Which wood should i chose.
