We're getting another step closer to completing work on our log home. The weather has finally cleared up and we are getting ready to stain our log home! (With 99% of the help coming from our builder Randy of course!)
We have chosen a red-tone brown color which you can see painted under the eaves on this picture here. Sashco who makes the stain said that this is a popular color with customers as well as the medium tone brown.
First the logs are power washed and then the Penetreat (borate solution) is applied. This helps repel the wood eating insects such as carpenter ants and termites. It has to dry for 48 hours and then the first layer of stain is applied. (It's important that it doesn't rain in between steps so the Penetreat doesn't wash off before the stain is applied.
Looking forward to sharing the before and after pictures with you all soon!
