Right now we are trying to wrap up the staining - still a few things to do. The deck railings need to finish being caulked and have another coat of stain slapped on. Additionally, due to having a tongue & groove log joinery system on our log home, we need to fill in those grooves with caulk and slap some stain on that as well. This will add additional protection to the logs from insect infestation.
As far as landscaping, we really have to wait till fall to plant more shrubs and trees. Right now we are getting quotes to grade the back of the log cabin and add mulch to make it aesthetically pleasing for the time being. My husband is still on the hunt for more rocks to add to the landscape....maybe he can open up his own rock nursery!
