Question:


My husband and I are planning on building a
16 X 32 log cabin in Minnesota. Our budget allows us to build with 6 inch square pine logs.
We are wondering if this size of log will provide enough r-value in a Minnesota winter. Any advice on this issue is greatly appreciated.

Answer:

You will get about 1.4 R per inch of pine log. This does not take into consideration of thermal mass. Go to this web site:
