I'm working on plans for house in the McCarthy area. I was considering 3-sided logs (6-8") on the 1st floor and frame construction on 2nd.
I would love to hear from folks who have lived in log homes. I realize that logs have a low R value but that's not the whole story. The mass and heat storage capacity of the logs is a factor. I would super-inslulate the floor and the entire 2nd floor, walls and roof.
Tell me about your personal experiences with log walls - pros, cons. Advice and recommendations welcome.
