Hello,I recently purchased a log home in Western North Carolina and hired some folks who assured me they had experience with log homes and staining. The reason why I hired them is because the walls were extremely rough to the touch which meant they had not been cleaned in 20 years and could not be be cleaned until they were sanded first. I also wanted them to reseal the…Continue
Since COVID will keep me house bound this winter, it seems like a good time time to tackle some interior water stains. I've owned my kit-built, Northeastern Log Home ~6 years now (originally built in 2005) and I believe they are stains from the prior owner (it was a short sale). I've since had the exterior sanded/refinished/sealed buttoned up some flashing and haven't noticed any new stains. My interior is natural (light) and just sealed. I've read a few posts that suggested light sanding and…Continue

I am seeking some ideas on exterior trim color. My log home is finished with Sashco Transformation Brown Tone Dark. While I love the dark stain, all elevations are long & high and it makes the house look very dark. I'd love to bring some life into the exterior with some color, but would like to stay away from traditional red or green log home trim. Beige is a great contrast, but again in the same brown family.Any thoughts would be appreciated.Continue

We have been thinking about renovating our living room and kitchen. As there are many furniture and other appliances, we need to move these to a storage facility available as there is no additional space to store all of these. But as we are storing especially furniture, there is a concern about the temperature and the environment as there are chances that it may get damaged as these are expensive. We have been searching online for a couple of…Continue

Hey guys,We are moving into our new house this new year. I'm thinking about renting our old home. But I will have to renovate it first. The windows and doors need to be replaced as they have become old and damaged now. Also, I will have to move all the furniture and equipment from the house for renovation. I don't wanna take em to my new house. So I hired a self-storage service for this.But, moving all these appliances and furniture is not an easy task. Many people suggested hiring a moving…Continue
Hi There,My house caught fire three months ago. The repair works were over, and it was a difficult time in my life. And I didn't want it to happen again. As my wife and I couldn't locate the fire source, we decided to find a solution for it as it may help to avoid such incidents in the future. A friend told us to install a home security system, and upon hearing this, we searched online and…Continue
Hey there,When we started our renovation process, we never thought how much waste we would generate. Each day we moved the garbage to the garage. Now the renovation is completed, and we need to remove the garbage as soon as possible. I walked into my garage last week filled with construction waste and determined to get it all cleaned out and found myself overwhelmed with all this debris and not knowing where to start. A neighbour saw me struggling and recommended to hire a…Continue
