I own a 3 level home. The 1st level is frames, the second level turned logs, and the third level is framed. I want to frame over the logs on the middle level and reframe the upper level so everything is flush. Is it possible just to trip the ends of the logs a little and frame and insulate right over the existing logs then put siding over that? The logs are not in good shape but are structurally sound.

Yes, you can cut the log ends off and frame over, but you MUST fix any rot that is in the logs or it will continue to rot after you cover it and they will not be structurally sound over time. Call Ryan at 877-788-5647 for help and cost on fixing the logs.
