We have a 19 yr old pine log cabin in northern MI. We don’t use it in the winter. Can we winterize it? Turn off the water & heat during the winter? Would his cause damage or cracking to the pine ? Is cracking of the pine a normal part of aging? What maintenance does the abin need?

I don’t think that it will cause any splitting of the logs. Cracking and splitting is normal. It happens less if the logs are good and dry before construction.
