Just bought a 25-30 yr. old log home. At night,when the temperature drops, loud, sharp, popping noises begin in different areas. Is this normal? Does the wood expand or draw in more moisture, what is it?


It is very common.Happens a lot more in a cold climate.

We have a log home that was built in 2008. The loud popping and cracking noises happen all night long and keep waking us up. Is there anything we can do to fix this?
