    Got part of the house done. Need around 10-11 more gallons of stain. Took 4 gallons to do this. It has 2 coats on it.
    Did find out that using a stiff bristle brush like I was told leaves streaks in the stain. Soft works much better.
    I hate heights so I only got so high up.

    What stain are you using? It is kind of unnerving standing on the top of a 30ft. latter and reaching out. I stained some billionaire's cabins in Telluride, CO last fall.

    Thank you.

    We are using Benjamin Moore. They have a new stain out so we thought to try it. Turning out pretty nice.
    I was using the shorter ladder and it rocked a couple times on me. I had to brush the hand prints off the logs.[​IMG]
