Our shell was built five years ago, 18 to 24 inch diameter logs, scandanavian scribe. No protection has been applied to the logs. We are now ready to build and are being told that the log may not pass inspection. What visible signs are we looking for and is there qualified people that can inspect our home in Michigan. I do not want an $80,000 bon fire.


Call Mike at 866-670-3020. He can inspect it for you if you are still in need. Sorry about the delay.
