Question:


We are considering buying property with a log home. Not wanting the maintance of a log home we would like to cover the logs with some type of siding. How do you put siding over logs? Have thought about Hardy Board. Could you put foam insulation between the logs and siding?

Answer:

You can do all of the above. You want to make sure that all rotten logs are changed out before covering or they will continue to rot and cause structural issues later. Contact a local builder for consultation and knowledge of building codes in your area.
