Question:


Our logs are flat--inside & out. Some outside endcaps need replaced. Where can we get those. Can interior walls be blasted--we have some water damage due to frozen and burst pipes. Where can we get flat logs to replace a chimney that will be removed. Our house is cedar laminated to an inner layer of another wood type. The logs fit together in tongue and groove fashion. House was built in 1977. Any info is appreciated. Thank you.

Answer:

Yes, interior walls can be blasted. Be prepared for a major cleanup. Sanding after or using scotchbright pads might be needed for personal preference. Matching exising logs can sometimes be tricky, I haven't heard of that type of log style. I would suggest making your own. Using cedar 1 inch T & G boards for the interior, glue or screw them to a pine flattened log that matches the exterior.
