Question:


I was told by the builder that the only compound used between the d-logs and were the logs butt up against each other was liquid nails. Is that a wise and/or common practice?

Answer:

Is it common? Not to my knowledge.I have never seen it. I really can't see where it would hurt anything though.

Well being that the log home is not even 2 years old I already have suffered water leakage and extreme drafts (would that be considered hurting something), i even have seen daylight through the butted ends. Would liquid nails be considered the ideal material to use to prevent these problems from occuring or should the builder have used a more suitable material. No chalking was used on the outside of the logs, just a bead of liquid nails down the center.
