Question:


We have a log cabin and the walls are log. When we purchased it 8 years ago we didn't notice the gray caulking in between the logs, on the inside walls. I would like to chink the inside walls, but my husband thinks it will look funny. My question is should we chink the inside walls, and what would be the cheapest, but looks good, product to use. Outside logs are chinked. I'm trying to break up all the wood inside and draw a little more attention to the walls. Thanks

Answer:

Chinking or caulking the inside shouldn't be a problem. If the line is 3/4' or less you should use caulk. I would recommend Energy Seal. Call 800-564-2987 to purchase and get more help.

I'm sure you mean 3/4ths of an inch (3/4"), and not 3/4ths of a foot (3/4'). I APPRECIATE all this much needed information, since my husband and I are considering buying a pine log cabin.

by all means chink your inside walls we used energy seal in natural it really gives it the finished look and covers up the larger joints and cracks
