A friend of mine wants me to come ”look” at his csbin and explain what is wrong as I used to be a builder. His problem is that the drywall he hung is pulling away from his logs, which he did not allow to dry. My understanding is that he hung the drywall directly on the logs as opposed to building seperate interior walls. Any solutions? Thanks

Take your crowbar! It should be pulled down and build the interior walls as you said. This building will move its entire life, especially if it is in the north where the temperature varies so drastically.It will expand and contract to some extent forever, but even more the first 3-5 years depending on the log size and moisture content as it settles into place.
