I was watching a show where they were fixing up a Log Cabin and to my surprise they were putting regular siding on the house. I thought the whole purpose was to have the look and feel of a Log Cabin which could cost thousands of dollars now with all the amenities of french doors and high efficiency windows.
Some people put carpet over hardwood floors as well, I call them fools.
Have you ever watched those videos of cabin builders? I think it was a television series.
I have watched various DIY programs through the years that dealt with log cabins. but it still seems strange why someone would put siding on a log cabin.
