I am finishing a 9000 sq foot hand drawn log home and I have a problem with the chinking contactor. He said Im not sanding deep enough in between the round stacked logs, therefor his chinking wont cover the unfinished portion of the log. Is there a magic log sanding tool that will reach deep enough. Im already using 7" discs on angle sanders. Blasting is not an option


Sounds like you are doing it right. You might want to try an Osborn Brush. It may get in a little futher.

I am considering the purchase of a home in the Atlanta area that appears to have a log facade, but I don't think is truly a log home. I need to have the home inspeccted for strucural issues anyway, so I was wondering if you could recommend an inspector that specializes in log homes so that I can get an honest opinion of what I am looking at regarding inital maintanence and upkeep...many thanks
