Question:


I have an attached log garage that is shifting with a log twist. It appears that the builder forgot a piece of rebar in the side front to keep the logs aligned. It is shifting at one point(approx.1") and it is pulling the whole front of the garage to one side. I am planning on putting a jack under the affected garage opening to take off the weight load and installing an iron c-beam with 1" all-thread rods to the outside of the logs to try and pull the logs back into alignment. Am I on the right

Answer:

Not sure without seeing it but it sounds like a good plan.
