Hi, I have a log cabin built around 1930 out of chestnut. The logs are obviously hand hewn, uneven, small in diameter - I think the corners are butt and pass. We would like to add an addition to the house and keep it authentic looking. Cost will be a consideration-so I was considering a frame structure. Can you recommend any type of realistic looking siding? Thanks.


The best thing would be to call a local sawmill or lumber yard and see what is available in your area.
