Is it time? Were you considering purchasing an existing log home until you saw inside? Were you thinking of building new but just couldn’t stand the thought of having the exposed log look inside too? Homestead Timbers has options for you! There are a few ways to get the log look on the outside of the house without using full logs and having to have the log look on the inside as well. The first and easiest is log siding. This option allows you to apply siding which looks like a log, to be applied to a stick build house where you can have drywall on the inside too. However, if you are looking at purchasing an existing log home and are otherwise unable to put drywall up, there are other ways to update or transform the dated look and give you a more modern home. This article printed in Country Living October 2014 and found on their website here: shows a prime example of something modern that can be done to a log cabin. With a little direction, a little insight, a little money and effort and the right material and products, making an all wood interior look clean and updated is as easy as 1 2 3. They didn’t remove walls. They didn’t take down any of the paneling, that I can see and yet, it’s a great finished product!
