Hi. I just bought a 15-year old Appalachian-style log home In W. KY in Sept and now have discovered that after a hard freeze, when it warms up, our walls are leaking inside where the roof meets the walls. The dripping water is only in a few areas scattered around the house and is coming from behind 4-inch wide trim. Where do I start? Thanks for your help. Pam

I would remove the trim to see what is going on behind it. You should also chink both inside and out around the top to seal it up. If there is no insulation in the roof it could be condensation buildin up behind the trim.
