we have an old log house that was built in the 1800's. i uncovered alot of the interior walls and cleaned them up, tore out the hay and mud that was original an rechinked with a masonry cement. i am now doing another part of the house, a 12 x 18' room. there are gaps of 4-8 inches between logs with rocks stacked in the gaps. do you have a better recipe for the chinking. products like perma-chink would cost me a fortune.


Can only recommend Perma Chink to do it right. Try to google an old style chink recipe.
