Commercial fishing and some trapping take us away from our homes for weeks at a time. Our preferred practice is to build a small cabin near the lake or river where we will be staying. The cabins are built from local materials. Pine trees in the area are cut and “peeled” and erected as a “log” cabin. In the past no siding, paint or preservative has been used on these buildings.
In the summer of 2000 a new cabin was built at a remote lake, but this time Seal-It Wood Sealant was sprayed on. Three years later, the logs still look as clean and “white” as the day they were peeled. Generally other cabins we have made in this manner would be showing signs of “graying” or even black and deteriorating by now.
