Our log home is only half logs from the mid 1800s and the other half was an addition from the early 1930s and all of it was covered with Hardy board siding before we bought it. The inside was covered with all kinds of things but we were able to finally get down to the logs. We want the logs exposed in the interior but they are in need of chinking. Is there a detailed description of your chinking process on your website? I looked around but could only find your recipe. Any information you could provide would be appreciated. I tried to upload pics but couldn't today, I will try again later.
Answer from Banjoe
I have an ebook coming out very shortly and in it, I go into detail on this subject and many others. If you have a little time before you need to get started, you could be one of the first to check out this info and give me some feedback!
If you are in a hurry, let me know (thru the comments on this page) and we can talk on the phone or something. ---Banjoe
PS-Can you tell if there is any insulation material in between the logs (between the exterior and interior chinking?) Also, do you ever plan on taking off the exterior siding to expose the logs there too?
