Our 4 year old milled log, caulked and backer rod prepared house leaks between the logs and through knot holes. I have re-caulked and filled every crevice I can find. Is there some other way we can seal it from the wind driven rain? Thank You

A lot of times your log home can leak on the complete opposite end of the wallthat it is leaking on the interior. The milled logs typically have a grove in the top that allows water to channel down the length of the wall. Check all of your exterior corners very well. You might want to inspect all of your windows for openings behind the trim.
