Mennonites- The person who put in the windows (not the log guys) didn’t leave enough room above doors and windows for shrinkage – some of the logs are being held up from the one below by the window and door frames. Logs are spiked – each opening has a groove for 2×4 along the height – How do I remove the windows and doors to allow for settling and replacing the windows without having the logs twist or fall?
