I bought 2 log kits, and prints call for using 2-4’s between logs, I thought this was accepted as the best construction method, I have seen logs cut with a tongue and groove type notching, and laid right on too of each other. My question is: which method is best, what are the pro’s and cons of both, if there is a better method than either, what is it? My logs are red oak and dovetail cut on ends, with steel rods drilled through each end. Thanks-daveo
I’m not sure what you mean by the 2×4’s in between the logs. Are you doing stick built construction with half log siding? The T&G homes work great and are inexpensive compare to a hand crafted log home. Even though they are marketed as ”chinkless”, they will need to be caulked on the exterior after 8 to 10 years if not sooner.
