Hopefully is having a great Memorial Day weekend with friends and family. I’m finally getting some time to post photos of a recent log cabin restoration project we did in Minnesota. The bottom three rows of logs needed replacing due to water splashing on them from running off of the roof and hitting the deck. The rest of the log cabin was in great shape. The cabin owners opted to replace the old pine logs with cedar logs. We were able to get the replacement logs custom milled to match and completed the job a couple of weeks ago. Gutters, downspouts and proper deck flashing could’ve prevented the issues but all is well now with the proper measures being taken by the current cabin owners. This is an example that is similar to quite a few of the Minnesota log homes and log cabin restoration projects we have been doing. The longer the repair is put off the worse it can become over time.
Below are a few photos of the restoration project
As you can see, even the bottom logs on the wall can be removed and replaced. Give us a call or email if you have a Minnesota log home repair project you want us to take a look at.
