Question:


I did a remodel on an 80-yr old lob cabin. Have lived here now for several years but all of a sudden I am noticing that the chinking on exterior walls (kitchen) is "weeping" inside. Checked the outside walls - no moisture at all. Only inside. There is enough moisture building to then run small lines of moisture down the logs inbetween the chinking. Where could this be coming from? Ceiling is not wet - just the chinking on the walls.

Answer:

Sounds like the chinking on the exterior is cracked or broke loose from the logs or there is a check allowing the water to get down behind the chink and leak inside.
