This looks like a flying black ant. Perhaps a carpenter ant? They only have wings for a short time (one day?) and I think that they are queens & males looking to start new colonies.
Carpenter ants love wood (hence the name)- they'd love to live in a log home too.
No they don't sting, but I think they can bite.

It's a carpenter ant and they fly on day out of the year then shed their wings.
