Old chinking on its way out!
The old chink was extremely hard and difficult to remove
After the chink was removed, the logs had to be completely sanded.
Everyone was creating sawdust!
More dust than you can imagine!
Erin brought her BF, Chase. He was a welcome addition!
The wood burning stove was officially de-commissioned. The burnt char found on the logs where the stovepipe entered the wall was confirmation that its time was over.
Everyone got their hands dirty scraping away 100-year old bark.
The first of the stain being applied on the kitchen wall.
Kitchen logs with stain!
The stain really makes the character of the logs pop!
The stain leaves a light sheen finish and amps up the contrast of all the nuances in the logs. Beautiful!
Before on the right, after on the left.
The south wall of the main room looks stunning now!
The logs are still a bit wet with stain in this shot, but you can see how the vintage character of the logs has been preserved in a beautiful way! We were overjoyed with the results!
