The next big project - perhaps the biggest - is the log restoration. We are close to an agreement with Martin Kirsch, owner of Appalachian Log Home Repairs, to do the work. He will replace and repair logs with rot or too much weathering, corn cob blast the entire cabin (power washing is too lame and sandblasting is too violent), caulking and chinking, stain and seal. The corn cob blasting will restore the logs to what they were when they were new. Martin has his own website here:
Anyway, between two torrential rains we had a visit from friends Joanne and Mike. It was nice catching up again. And Mike helped us run electric and install a hanging lamp over the table. They even gave us the lamp!
We are looking forward to what autumn will bring us.
