I was looking at buying a 7-8 month old log cabin. It is too small (1200 sq. ft) and we wanted to put on an addition but were told by a builder that we would have to wait 2-3 years for the logs to settle before would could add on. Does this sound correct?


It depends on the style of the house. If it is a "kit style" house and the walls are not real tall there souldn't be a problem doing it right away. If it is a true "round log/chink style" house then you should wait until it has set thru one full summer and winter.
