The Log Home Neighborhood

An online log home community for log home enthusiasts.

Since it's been 2 weeks since a single sole last posted in the loghomeu I thought I check for pulse.  Roll call everyone?  Spring 2015 Log Home Maintenance season is turning out to be busy already, here's our first project, pictured below in the foothills outside of Denver.  This log home had been built just 10 years ago and was originally coated with Sikkens Cetol 1-2-3, a product which we remove often and it's one of the more difficult media blast jobs.  This log home will get walnut blasted followed by grinding / sanding /buffing, and finally a hot water oxalic acid wash to brighten and get rid of all of the blasting and sanding mess and debris.  The logs can't be re-coated at this time due to the lack of maintenance over the past decade which has lead to the failed finish.  This log home has also never been chinked, which has lead to extreme damage of the logs and log siding.  Finally the log home will be stained with 4 coats of Sikkens 'Log and Siding' stain and then chinked with Sashco Log Jam chinking and caulked with Sashco Conceal.  

If anyone in Colorado is looking for work, we're hiring!
