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

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
Good morning,I’ve recently purchased a log home with first floor exposed floor joist ceilings. I’d need some advise about installing hardwood floors on the second floor. Should I glue them down or nail? I’m concerned about the nails poking through. Any sage advise would be helpful. MaryContinue

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.
