looking to purchase 1860’s log home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin area. Would like an expert to inspect to make sure this is sound. Basement has some dry rot, and floor joists have shims between the joist and floor boards, I thought to prevent squeeks but maybe worse? inside plaster in upstairs sound. also home never had a furnace, is boiler best method? no place to put duct work. ideas? suggestions? all appreciated, thank you.

You should have a home inspector take a look at the floor joist. He (she) will be familiar with the local building coades for your area. As for the heating situation a boiler would be best. It should be inspected for log rot, finishand chinking.
