What is your opinion on peeling bark?
I have watched several videos on youtube on building a log cabin.
Some people strip the logs of bark and some do not. Is this a personal preference or is there a reason I am missing?
Peeling the logs is not just a personal opinion. When the bark is left on the log it provides a thriving environment for bugs. It also traps moisture and fosters rot and decay. I do strongly recommend removing all bark.
If your logs will never be getting wet then it would not hurt much to skip peeling bark.
Thanks for the question!
