We have a log and stucco home at 9,600' up in the Colorado Rockies which we had built about 10 years ago. The first few years we were told by the builder to expect cracking noises as the logs "checked". It's 10 years later and we still hear the noises at night after the sun sets and it gets cooler. Same time each night. We do have visible bats in the area and have seen droppings on our roof and are trying to determine if the noises are bats in the rafters (we do not have an attic) or hopefully


The cracking, popping noise will happen basically forever when there is a temperature change that cause the logs to expand and contract.
