I am is the process of finishing a three story log home. I was thinking of installing a deck. We have logs at about a 18 inch diameter and are worried about rot. Would you recommend a porch or a deck? We are in northern Michigan in the snow belt.


If possible you should build the deck so that it is free standing from the house. Also make sure that you you install rain gutters over any areas that may have splash from the roof and would cause rot. Even just dew dripping from the roof or overhangs can cause rot over time.
