Log Cabin Windows and Loft






The doors and windows arrived finally. All but 2 windows are installed right now. The builder had to use a chainsaw to carefully finish cutting the openings for them. The logs arrive with the window openings, but the log company leaves room in case the homeowner changes their mind about the size of the windows. They have dark green aluminum wood clad frames which looks so right with the color of the logs. We need to make a decision about the log stain. I want a more golden color but I'm told since it is a light color - it requires more maintenance and staining. I need to ask Sashco who will be our stain provider.
Other work that was completed this past week was the tongue and groove wood being installed in the loft ceiling. It makes the room look so massive. The 5 separate windows in the loft lets in an abundance of light into our main living area.

I noticed your comment in "Building a Log Cabin". You were right on when you said the the darker the stain the longer it will last. This is because it has more pigment in it. Having said that, Sashco does have a fabulous oil based stain called Transformation. It does come in the gold tones with plenty of pigment for protection. If you would like some free samples, please feel free to call Sashco (Karen LaClair) or email me anytime.

My husband and I are also building a log cabin, up in Quebec Canada. We are doing it by ourselves. We may be crazy. We are cutting down the trees now. I love reading other people's blgs to get an idea of what is to come. Thanks. Janet at This Log House.
