I came across a Log cabin kit home this past weekend. I noticed the windows were installed different from anything I have ever seen. Very curious to why or if this is a log cabin thing?
Installed on the outside without any type deterrence method of rainwater. It had something similar to a case and base attached to it without any caulk or sealing. I did a moisture test because I was sure it would be high and it was not. The type of wood is cypress not like it should make a difference. 2002 Log cabin kit, Renovated in 2018.
So to sum up, Are log cabin windows installed differently then any other structure? And if so, Why?? Also could it be that whomever installed the windows just got lazy and did an absolute poor job?
