Chinking 28 year old cabin ~ Product on logs unknown


  I am new to this Log Home blog. Actually, I am new to the whole log home scene. My husband and I purchased a log cabin in November 2010. This cabin is 28 years old. It has not been used much with minimal love given to it.  Everything is original and barely used, feels like you are in a time warp. We do plan on replacing the orange colonial furniture, after the re-no work is completed. LOL

  We plan on chinking the interior first (due to the winter temps right now). The…

Balmy forecast

Now Spring restores the balmy heat, now Zephyr's sweet breezes calm the rage of the equinoctial sky.

Poem 46, Catullus (Roman poet)
I just wanted to let you know it is a balmy 64 degrees in the cabin with the thermostat set at 62.

Phone message, Mr. Seals (Virginia contractor)

Give me the heat

While I was squeezing fresh oranges from my mother's tree for my morning juice in California, Richmond was suffering freezing ice and snow and wind. It was a good time to get serious about the heat.

Freelance European Log Home salesman ready to serve a forward thinking Manufacturer!

I can negotiate at board level and can bring in sales for a manufacturer whom is willing to invest a relatively small amount for great returns.

Should you…

Restoration Co. Beware

I know there's a lot of restoration/repair companies here so I wanted to post a warning. Be on the lookout for a log repair job inquirey comming from Southern Texas. They will tell you that they will pay you to look at the house but they won't. A motel there will cost you over a $100.00 a night. Travel at your own risk for this one

Our Christmas Miracle

Well, it only took 2 and half months, but the roof is finally finished.  100%.  Looks good.  A few days before Christmas the roof was finally done!  That allowed us to finally go hog wild getting ceilings hung.  We posted a few pics of the ceilings going up at that point. 


Since then, the GC got the high ceilings hung and the doormers pretty much done.  As we mentioned before, we prestained all our ceiling material.  Since it was stained, they also did the trim (also…

Grit and gumption

We met Mr. Seals at the cabin on New Years Day. It was the weekend and he wanted to touch base with us before he and his wife Robin went to the movie. Darien wondered what they would be seeing. I told her True Grit, most likely.
