The chinking on the outside is finished! We still have to seal up some places around the windows and the bird block.

The family went hiking up at Max Patch yesterday and it sounded like they had a lot of fun.

Me and Nate stuck around at Church and worked on some music.


  1. Your house is going to be so gorgeous!

  2. Looking good! Lots of chinking in some of those corners. Did you put spray foam under it to hold it in place? Make sure you clean the logs off fairly soon or it will be near impossible to get the residue off ( I speak from experience).

    1. Hi Rachel,
      Thanks! All that chinking in the corners are a result of my big bobo. I passed the tapered ends of the logs which resulted in some pretty big gaps. We used metal mesh in those areas and they worked out ok. We will do the same thing on the inside but it doesn't look like it will be as difficult there as it was on the outside. I hope all the residue will come off ok but it will be a few weeks before I can get to it. We are in need of a break and are taking a vacation for a week and other things have piled up that need my attention.

  3. You come to our house-I can show you lots of uh-ohs. We used chicken wire on some spots like that. It was easier to maneuver and cut than the mesh. The spray foam with nails pushed into it works good around the windows where you can't fit the hammer or stapler in to nail in a nail to secure the wire in place.
