I generally am a fan of rustic furniture, but in a few areas of the country, you have to maintain it almost as rigorously as your house. In fact, you might as well include it in certain pest treatments for termites and carpenter ants. Log furniture is fantastic, but not to be forgotten when conducting those matters of home maintenance. We are so accustomed to man made materials in our clothing, shoes, house coverings, and seating options, that it is easy to forget log furniture is real wood and worthy of some care and attention to maintain its beauty.
For sturdiness and dependability, log furniture basically has no equal competitor. However, if you live in an area with a high incidence of termite or carpenter ant infestations, it is best to treat the log furniture and have it inspected just like you do your house. We are used to maintaining a house in such a manner and it really is a simple task. The benefits pay off much higher in the long run because unlike your attic, the furniture is the last place you want to find a pest. It may take a little consideration, but log furniture is definitely worth the effort if you do happen to live in such an area.
