Re: A Recent Log Home


Really nice, welcome to the forum.

How are you fastening the logs, with pole barn nails or long screws?

Re: A Recent Log Home


Nice looking house there. I see you went with the D style of logs. Do you like those better then the round?

Re: A Recent Log Home


I wouldn't say I prefer one of the other, I just think they both have their place. The interior of this home is being finished with knotty Cedar Tongue and Groove so you'd never see the round side on the interior anyway. Also it makes trimming out the doors and windows much simpler.

Hi Brian,
You are a bit colder than I am in Bangor so how are you heating it and how is it doing?

Love log homes.

Propane boiler, radiant floors. It holds temp very well and It sits right on top of a pretty open hill exposed to the wind.

R-19 in the cathedral rafters and 2 layers of un-faced R-19 in the attic. She's tight, no drafts.
