The above question talks exactly to my situation, and with all due respect, you really did not provide too much of a solution. Can you please expand on the answer, like how does one side over an exterior log wall, using log siding? My very small log home is a kit, where the log siding is more of a half log nailed to studs. My ultimate goal is to put an addition out the back of the house and use wider log siding all the way around the house so that it is a new exterior, and it all matches. I was thinking that furring strips would level off the very irregular shaped wall, but it would also make the entire wall much thicker, especially when I pad out the 3 x 4's on the inside so to insulate with R-19 (6" insulation.) Could use some advice please.
