I bought a place in east Texas this past year and am living in a travel trailer for the time being. I have decided to build a log house using cedar logs cut off of the place here. I know that I need to debark the logs in preparation for curing. My question is how long do I have to wait to start building after I cut my logs? Can I cut and debark this winter and build next summer or sooner? I am 60 yrs old and don't want to wait yrs for the logs to cure. Thanks, Reggie


I would recommend waiting at least 6 months from time of being cut down. Debark ASAP.
