Help! Blotchy Interior Log Walls 3 Replies

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

Removing / Cleaning Old Interior Water Stains

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

Exterior Trim Color

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

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

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.

A friend told us to install a home security system, and upon hearing this, we searched online and…Continue
