Bugs Bugging You? . Contact Jack@LogHomesByJack.com


BUGS Bugging You? 
There are two slightly different products that can be used against bugs.

[1] BUG JUICE is a contact insecticide. It is mixed in the top coat of paint or stain.  Does not work in water. Kills bugs in about 3 hours or less when they walk on any coated surface, inside or outside. Effective life of about 3 years. The idea is to eliminate the new bug offspring. Human and pet friendly. Cost is around $49 to treat 5 gallons plus applicable sales tax plus shipping.

[2] NBS30 is a repellant. Can mix it in water and spray it during their time of heavy activity. Effective life is 6 weeks or so. Coverage depends on your mix ratio. Cost is around $45 plus applicable sales tax and shipping.

[3] Mold Buster is a product that goes in paint or stain. Cost is around $20 plus applicable sales tax and shipping.

Available at www.LogHomesByJack.com if you cannot find them in your local paint store. Just contact … jack@LogHomesByJack.com at 800.767.4916

What does it cost to build an A Frame by LogHomesByJack.com


Common Construction Question
What does it cost to build an A Frame?
Jack Sez: Today, if a structure like this is built to residential code, not recreational code, you can expect to pay between $120 to $195 per square foot. The cost can be even higher in some geographic areas. 

Your turnkey price depends on Where you build, Clearing and Site prep, Slab or Crawl Space or Basement, Garage or Car Port, basic A Frame Material Options, Finishing Material options, Shingles or Metal Roof, Overall Style, Porches and Decks, Driveway or Roads, Well, Septic or Sewer and the going rate for local Builders. Self builders can expect to save about 30% on the total turnkey cost.
 
Recreational cabins code may not have any material specs that must be used. All codes can vary from county to county or by fire code districts as in California. This also include whether or not your plans need an engineer's stamp to make sure that “you” are in compliance. This is how Government makes themselves necessary and justifies their existence.
 
Added Reminder for DIYers. Put very good layers of insulation under the subfloor and where the roof and floor meet, even for basements and crawl spaces. Insulation around the windows and doors are critical too. Good doors and windows do make a difference. Do not neglect the peak where the roof sides meet whether conventional or A Frame styles. These are the prime places of heat loss.
