I'm building a small log cabin out of green logs that I cut this summer (poplar) and will chink it in the spring, after they set and settle and dry.
There's lots more contextual information in my own blog, here
. I may do anything from the traditional to the new synthetic stuff.
It's an ongoing process, and I'll enjoy blogging about it here in addition to my own cabin blog, which digresses too much for a dedicated website like this.
