Buying an old log house

I have found an old log house on a concrete foundation.
Before I buy it I need to evaluate if it is in good shape. I don't want to pay an appraiser for something I could easily do myself.

What do I look for to make sure the logs are sound? Is there a moisture content I should check for in bottom tier of logs?

How do I know if there is rot, insects, etc? What do I look for?
