Hope you are having a fantastic week. Are you ready to talk logs? Or maybe “spring” is more prevalent on your mind. I know by mid January, many of us are ready for the snow to melt and for spring to arrive. Let’s talk about both! Spring is the time for planning and projects. Logs, equal beautiful creations and projects. Put them together and what do you get? MSLC spring projects! What kinds of projects do you have planned for this spring? If you have not taken the time to peek at some of our past projects, I encourage you to do so. Our Gallery page has photos of homes & cabins we have completed along with descriptions about each project. A great way to get inspired about your next project. We also have lots of boards on our Pinterest page for inspiration on projects both large and small. Let’s take a look at one of my favorite past projects. A wonderful historic cabin that was transformed into this beautiful log home whilst keeping its original flavor. A little MSLC magic!
Current Projects & Products
If you are new to logs, you may not yet know the importance of chink and stain. Chinking and Staining are essential to any log building. Chinking seals off air (and also that nasty fly or bee) that finds its way between logs. Staining preserves and protects logs from weather, moisture, sun bleaching, insects, etc. We use Sashco brand products here at MSLC. There are many different colors of chink and stain to choose from, including a clear stain, which is often used in interior settings, as it leaves the logs as light and natural as possible.

I hope you are looking forward to spring and new projects and yet are able to enjoy mid January as well. It is the perfect time to leaf through pages of garden and home magazines. To draw up plans and write down lists. I would love to hear about your own plans and ideas, or even see some of your lists & sketches. Let me know what you’re up to!
Enjoy the mid winter down time and let’s get excited about planning!
Until next time,
