Question:


We are adding onto our log home - several damaged logs on the west faciing side and we were going to just frame in the logs and have the addition go out from there. If structually they are framed in and stablized do we still need to repace the damaged logs?

Answer:

They could possible continue to rot. I would dig out as much of the rot as possible and apply a good heavy coat of Shell Guard borate at the very least.
