How to Maintain a Log Cabin

A log cabin is a great place to spend time  if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It’s the perfect relaxation venue because of the hint of freshness from the outdoors and the sense of peace and quiet you get from being away. What’s even more fascinating is that some of these wonderful homes are built by interlocking the ends with notches, without the use of nails.

If you happen to own one or are planning to have one built for vacations, below are some ways to help maintain your home.

– Clear away any fallen trees and stumps within at least 50 feet from the house because these can attract and shelter wood-boring insects and pests.

– Get rid of any branches that can bridge insects to your home. Shrubs and other bushy plants should be at least 3 feet away from your house’s walls to enable air circulation and keep logs dry after rains or snows.

– Install a French drain as this can help keep any water hazards away from the house because these flexible pipes draw moisture from the soil and guide it away from the building.
