I have a 1918 log cabin with vertical log construction. Some of the logs are beginning to get soft and rot on the bottom end as it sits on the rock/cement foundation. Is there a good way to repair these? Or do the logs need to be replaced. If so, what is the best way to replace one of the logs. And how do I prevent further decay of the existing logs.

I am having about the same problem.I have a log cabin that I am remodeling and have found that one of my logs are bad but my contractor has no idea how to replace it. I want to know what the safest and easiest way to replace it would be. It is on the bottom and in the front corner of the house.It is a traditional round log structure.
