Hi, we are looking at buying a log home on a river. It has been repossessed because it has extensive termite damage. There're holes on both the inside and outside. One side of the house the window is crocked cus the log are starting to collapse. Can you repair this or how do you replace the logs? Or is there an innovative way to fill the logs with something to make them strong again. Help. Laurie and Fred
