I am thinking of purchasing a log home with square logs, not round. Love the home, fits our needs, just not to happy with the maintenance required on log homes. Is there a way to cover with vinyl siding easily? What preparation would be needed on the outside before installing it? Thanks!


You could side it, but I wouldn't use vinyl. Go with some sort of cement board or Hardy Plank. As for preparation you should check with local building codes or a local lumber yard.
