Watch how our logs are milled to become part of a beautiful Hiawatha log home.

With the winter months almost behind us, it’s time to start thinking about preparing your log home for spring. Cold temperatures and excessive amounts of rain and snow can take a toll on your log walls, if not addressed early on. Follow this simple steps to ensure that your log home is protected and ready for spring.

Test Moisture Resistance:
With a spray bottle or hose, apply water to the surface of your logs. Ideally the water will bead up and roll off of the wood, indicating that your walls are properly sealed. If you notice any darker areas where the wood is absorbing the water, it’s time to add another coat of finish.

Look for Damage: Freezing and thawing cycles can cause your foundation to expand and contract, sometimes leading to cracks or checks in your logs. Inspect the exterior of your home to identify anything that may have opened up throughout the winter. Touch up the sealant where necessary to prevent future water damage or rot issues.

Check Your Gutters: In order to protect the foundation of your home, make sure that water can easily flow off of your roof. Do a thorough inspection of your gutters and downspouts to identify any cracks or areas where debris may have built up throughout the winter. Using a broom or hose clear any areas that are blocked.

A spring inspection is an essential step in preserving your log home and is relatively painless if you are up to date on regular maintenance. Plus, once it’s done you can sit back, relax and enjoy the summer months.

"We both have always had a love for the appearance of a log home, but we also did not want to give up the more formal traditional look. Being able to build this home here, on this spot, we have what I like to call our own 'Salhalee'. 'Salhalee' is an Indian word that means 'a place of peace and beauty.'" - The Morrisseys

"Choosing Hiawatha Log Homes was easy. We were already sold on the energy efficiency of a log home. After we visited their manufacturing facility, and saw firsthand the attention to detail given to milling every home, we were even more conviced - a Hiawatha Log Home is what we wanted." - The Stolls

"We had very specific ideas for our log home. Each element had to be a crisp feature to accent our furniture and design tastes. Hiawatha gave life to our requests and made us feel that our home was very important to them. It's a one-of-a-kind masterpiece." - T. Gelb
