"Hi Tim, I thought if I built with green logs I'd have issues with the log shape changing (twisting, bending). I'm building a post and beam style - no chinking and no load bearing logs laying against each other.  After the roof is on…"

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(mrs.joycegyimah@gmail.com) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Joyce.
