So you want to build a log cabin.....

I would like to share our log home story.  When my husband and I decided to build a cabin, we were very excited.  So 30 years ago, we built a basic ranch, 8" round log saddle notched home.  As the years have gone by, we are now 60 years old, this home is a lot of upkeep.  We love our home, but as the aging process, on the human body, takes over your life, a log home is a whole lot of work.  I have to laugh now when people say, "I want to build a log home to retire in"   OMG You can only…

Needing advice.

We're building a log home in wet WA state. 

Build has been delayed. Logs were delivered from out of state 4+ mo's ago, sitting up off ground on crates, covered by plastic. We noticed about 1+ mo's ago what appeared to be mildew on some of the logs, were told to open the plastic up a little to allow them to get more air flow-and a 'few' of the non rain days uncovered them.
