i am building a log home with pine and the logs has dried over summer, i now have cracks long ways in the logs where they dried to fast. i have now painted the ends with sealer what i should have done once i cut them. What do you recommend be doing to the cracks in the logs can i use something to put in the cracks to keep them from spliting more. any help would be great thanks

Do not worry about the checks (cracks) in the logs until you build the house. Then only fill the ones that run into a window or door jamb or maybe a corner where you know there are letting wind, water or bugs inside. It is best to leave them open so they can dry out because water WILL find it’s way into them sealed or not! Squeeze a little borate into them for some protection
