Question:


I have a log sided house that was originally just wood sided. They strapped it and put on log siding. I have found from replacing windows that there is a gap between the old wall and the new log out side wall that is open at the bottem. Should this gap be sealed to creat a dead air space or left open for circulation between the two walls.

Answer:

I would seal it to keep bugs and critters from getting in. The dead air space will help insulate the home as well.
