I have a 1930's log cabin with an addition added on both ends. Both additions are 2x4 construction. The original cabin and both additions were covered with log siding. When investigating the tamarack logs they seem in good condition. If i keep the log siding how would you insulate between the siding and logs? This cabin is on a large lake in MN with strong NW winds.


I would call an insulation company that specializes in blown in foam insulation. Make sure they use "closed cell" foam.
