You will want to maintain your cabin to keep it looking good. The fall is a great time to do some routine wood building maintenance. This keeps your cabin looking and feeling its best. The sun and water are the greatest enemies of logs. They attack the logs constantly, destroying the finishes, and removing the seals and coatings. Also, constant use can cause equipment and cabin-building appliances to wear out. All of these problems can be avoided by setting aside a weekend before the winter months arrive. To keep your cabin in good condition, you will need to follow a fall maintenance schedule.
Circumambulate your cabin and inspect the exterior seals and finish. The logs in your log home should still retain most of the original color. If you used a transparent finish, the logs will still have their natural luster. Logs that are black or grayish have lost their protective finish. This exposes them to ultraviolet light and moisture, which can degrade the logs. Pay special attention to wood trim and logs that are near the ground. These areas are more susceptible to rot and wood damage due to the constant soaking caused by heavy rains or melting snow. As you examine the exterior logs you should also check the seals between the logs.
