I have 2 year old, 9”milled log home, triple tongue and groove. 2 walls are bowed. The front wall is about 9ft high, and using a verticle board place from top to bottom log, the maximum deflection is 1.3” bow toward inside of house. also toungue and groove of logs around this area is seperating (up to .5” seperation). seals in window in the area let go, door came out of alignment, cocking in corners let go. also water runs on logs to inside house. Is 1.3” deflection too much over 9ft wall? what

You should contact the builder and /or the manufacturer of the house. You may want to get a structural engineer to look at it also.
