    That's some very uniform looking logs. But yes, even with that moisture level, I'd be inclined to leave some settling space. Why chance it?

    I gotta try to remember to take a picture of a place about an hour north of me, that they are building a new foundation under. It's up on cribbing and the ground has been graded around it. I'll be...

    I believe your understanding of the tie system is likely correct Remodlrj. I don't know whether it is a common practice with kithomes however.
    Depending on how the structure is built, there may...

    These are the kinds of problem solving challenges that I really like digging into. I'm the guy my company sends, when nobody else can resolve an issue.

    The springs make sense for a cope kit home. There are full length vertical tie rods within the walls. The springs are there to take up for inevitable log shrinkage, and keep the joints all tightly...

    Temporary bracing of the wall logs could be done with vertical wales inside and out. I'm assuming that it is a chinkless coped design, so to tie inner and outer wales together without introducing...

    I like how proud they are of their escape hatch, for dealing with radiation, but their air system and main entrance do nothing to address it. Also, the air system condensation drain is inaccessible...

    If they are either monocrystaline or polycrystaline panels, (NOT amorphous) and even if they are used, that's still a great deal.

    Looks like the deck needs more attention than the walls, but always good to stay on top of the maintenance, rather than wait until it's way overdue.

    All the photos of logs still look just fine. If nothing is soft, you're in good shape.
    Chinking inside isn't supposed to be there, so that explains why it's not outside as well. I'm guessing...

    And I fully agree, that space beneath the floor should be ventilated. And also should have a vapor barrier applied to the ground. (with a light covering of gravel to keep it in place)

    I second the notion of tar and concrete method, as a poor choice.
    I have some questions before I will say what course I'd likely take.
