Log home 11 yrs old has a butt joint where one log has twisted outward from the joint, even exposing the wood dowel pin between the connecting log ends. Tried a two pieces thick metal with threaded rod all winter, tightening every week until log was nearly flat, but it twisted back out a bit when removed. Need to ”toenail” the log, I guess. Exactly how? Logs on just that one side of house are all very dry and get the most sun. Thanks so much.

I would recommend that you get the log replaced. It will probably always twist like that. Call Ryan at 877-788-5647 for help.
