Cutting Half Sill Log

The first logs that are laid are the sill logs one set are half logs the other set are called whole or 3/4 logs. The half logs are first and are usually on the gable ends of the house. There is a a lot to consider when choosing the sill logs that I want go into. In a perfect world all the logs would be perfectly straight and all the same size. Ours are far from the same size and very few even come close to straight.
