Log Jamz : Maintenance

  Well it is thursday, and another Log Jamz is in order. In the last couple of weeks i have talked about locations, subs, suppliers and the like. Today's topic is going to be upkeep. Just like most homes a log home will need general maintenance to stay a healthy home.
  Such things to consider are exterior staining, checking for water damage, carpenter bees { and just so you know they don't buzz around with little hammers doing repairs! } and possible investation from termits. All of the following items can be taken care of by setting up a routine maintenance schedule for yourself to keep your log home healthly.

Have a great sunny thursday and stay safe!!

The chicken with his head cut off

Well it is already the middle of the week. The weather cannot seem to make up it's mind but forward progress does not stand in the way of rain. Flexiblity will be the key to making progress happen, so today will be a catch up day in my little world, estimates,  errands, multi=tasking as usual.
  S if you see a chicken with his head cut off running around it is more than likely me!! Remember that if you are this way yourself be careful crossing the road.

Have a great day!

Timber Frame Tuesday: The story

Good morning, it is Timber Frame tuesday and as promised i would provide some information about the world of timber framing. Most people do not realize just how much, or how long timber framing has been in existance.
  From castles in Europe, to temples in Japan, to barns in New England timber framing has had an impact on the ways that modern man builds and survives!
  Over time I will provide an indepth look at timber framing, it's history, information about the craft,
and a general knowledge to aid those in search of the dream of having a timber frame. Until then keep a watchful eye out for there will be more to follow.

  Have a great day and remember to always hug your tree before you cut it down and make it into something!

Kit Suppliers

Good morning and it is thursday which means it is time for my weekly addition to Log Jamz.
I so far have touched on the subjects of sub-contractors, research, and location. Today i briefly speak about kit suppliers.
  Kit suppliers can be in several forms, from small operations with several people up to large factories that produce volume.
  Either type can be suitable depending on the needs of the client. There are several really great ways to start the process of finding a package that is to your desire.
 First the trade magazines such as Log Home Living, Timber Homes. The internet which is where there are many companies doing their advertising. Another way to find great information are the trade shows that have representatives on hand to help you.
  Hope that this will be of assistance in making a great choice for your future!! More to follow!

Have a great day!

Loose ends

    It is wednesday already, time flies. All the loose ends are slowly but surely falling into place and in the next few weeks a timber project will begin. With that said since every thursday has been deemed Log Jamz thursday, I will be dedicating a day to detailed timber frame information.
  In association with my theme of the blog it will be know as Timber Frame tuesday. Information will be made available to bring about awareness of the industry and to hopefully educate everone about my personal passion!!

Have a great day! Go hug a tree today you will feel good that you did!!
