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.

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

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.

A neighbour saw me struggling and recommended to hire a…Continue
