I have the opportunity to get a 24x33 one story, log cabin for nothing if I move it off site. To move it whole will cost $15,000 to $20,000. My husband just suggested having some guys cut it to sections to move. I said that would ruin all the exterior and interior rectangular logs. Is there a safe way to cut up a log cabin?


I would not cut it. You should number each log with a tag that cannot fall off and dismantle it, move to new area and then put back together in reverse order. Take lots of pictures before dismantling. It sounds like it will need to be re-chinked after re-construction. You may want to investigate the cost to chink as just moving it may be about the same cost.
