Log Home DIY Maintenance

Wood rot… the ever-present foe of the log home owner. It can be a hidden pocket that forms in a log, an area where water runoff isn’t properly diverted, or it can be right in front of your nose.

This first image is a close-up of one of the stair treads leading up to our […]

Log Cabin in a KY Barn

Not a week goes by that I don’t hear from someone having a special request outside of the regular business of this blog. I’ve had people ask where they could find unique products, how to build a primitive log cabin, and even how to dismantle a log home.

Anyway, I bumped into Will Leverett the other day, he’s the owner of […]

Log Home spam

Imagine the new people they could attract to their parties… Internet users who have no political leanings might support any candidate that declared a “war on spam”. Like the “Do Not Call List”, they would most certainly exempt themselves as spammers, and we could go about our business only receiving spam from Presidential wannabes and every charity on the planet.

Log Home Living (online)

In a post last week, I mentioned that Log Home Living (magazine) had launched a new online community for log home enthusiasts. In the short time since that post, this thing has really taken off and in a great way… I believe its membership has doubled in size in one short week!

What’s your problem?
