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

Log Rot

I recently purchased a relatively poorly constructed and poorly maintained log home at a "bargain" price. It is only 12 years old but has some water issues. I have found the top of a couple of logs that are exposed to the weather at the corners, that have some rot. The extent and location is not a structural issue but not I am concerned about the future condition. Now there is a section that is a few inches is all 3 dimensions. What can I do to fill these areas in and protect it from further…Continue

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

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
