Winter is just around the corner, and that means it’s time for log cabin owners to get ready for cold, wet weather. Preparing your abode for whatever winter throws your way can help you avoid annoying issues and costly repairs down the line.
Whether you say goodbye to your log cabin in winter or live in it year-round, plan to get started on your winterizing checklist sometime after Labor Day.
If your region has mild winters, your to-do list might be considerably shorter. But even if you don’t get hard snow or freezes, wet weather and humidity (and even arid conditions) can still take a toll on log walls.
Check your cabin from top to bottom at least twice a year for issues like wood rot, infestations, settling, and general wear. By being diligent about log home maintenance in winter, you can get maximum enjoyment out of it when the warmer months roll around again.
