The Shelby log cabin is a perfect example of how restoration can turn an older cabin into a stunning showpiece once again. I love seeing those who have long lived in log cabins restore their property to its former glory.
This home was restored with updated stain and chinking, as well as repairs when needed. While the image below shows you the before that looks nice already, the after in the next image shows a great difference.
As you can see, the biggest difference is in the fresh coat of stain. To the natural eye, it may not seem like much, but it is a big difference in how long the logs will last as well as how insulated the home is when you have chinking and other additions updated and sealed properly.
This image shows you a bit more of how the home looked before restoration. Again, nothing too big, but small changes make the bigger difference in the long run.
Here you have fresh stain and updated chinking that make it pop against the background outside and just look fresher overall.
I love the clean look of fresh logs, but that stain is protection you need but also will give the home a new appearance. Below is the process of prepping before the updates on stain happen.
And the after look here shows the beauty of the stain but also a glimpse inside the home. These updates totally transform the home in a way you'd not expect.
The Shelby has a great layout with covered porches on all sides. The top floor includes private balconies and more gorgeous views. Plus, the stairs off the back of the home even go down to the beach below. So beautiful and welcoming!
And here you have the finished stained home. Such a difference between the two images gives you a gorgeous result that is sure to not just look great but improve the value of the home in the process.
They even restored this lovely walkway down to the private beach. It looks fine, but those boards and planks can rot so easily in the right conditions. It's imperative that you upkeep for safety.
A fresh stain and a few repairs make this a safe way to get down to the beach. Who wouldn't love a home like this with gorgeous views on all sides of trees, beautiful spaces, and beaches?
If you already own a log home, then a restoration project may be what you need. There is much to do in the process including the updated stain. They not only cleaned and updated, but repaired broken logs, added new boards when needed, and updated chinking between logs if necessary.
The result is a gorgeous log home that has more value than it did and is ideal for creating the home of your dreams. If you have an existing log home and need to see about restoration, this company is definitely one to add to your list.
