New Year, New Home, New Move 1 Reply

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.

Is it safe to hire a garbage removal service during the pandemic period? 1 Reply

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

T&G over logs ? 2 Replies

Hey everyone,we purchased a log home built in the mid 80’s. Logs are “D” logs and the interior is stained dark brown which makes the whole interior very dark.   We love the plain clear coat natural look and not interested in sanding everything and dealing with the mess, not to mention the un-evenness of the finished look.  Has anyone put 1x8 tongue and groove boards directly over their logs on the interior side ?  I know this will be more expensive than sanding.  Any advice ?Continue

Mould on interior logs 1 Reply

Hi, I'm on the final part of my log home build in Transylvania, Romania. We've just had the interior logs stained ( clear) using a water based product designed for logs. Within a week, black spots started to appear all over the interior. The product supplier says that the believe the logs may still have had a higher water content ( possibly because the windows and doors weren't installed for a number of months) which in turn caused a mushroom type Mould inside the log which has now reacted with…Continue
