I've never done one either, but the first problem that comes to my mind is how do you get the receptacle covers to "flush up" on the round logs. The log cabins that I've seen aren't "real" log cabins they just look as if they are. I would have to know more about the construction of the cabin. By the way, fresh air and a cabin in the woods is just what The Watt Doctor ordered. Good Luck, Doc
I've never done a log cabin but know many guys who have. Its my understanding that the logs are drilled as they are put up for electrical. At least thats how its done in Maine. Maine has several large producers of log homes and they are all over the place up here.
Reno, why should Peter's customer like pipe and surface boxes??? The two log homes I worked in have no exposed electrical. It takes a lot of work but can be wired like a conventional home.
Peter, the number one task you should plan on is: lots of lay out time. Start planning your circuit paths now. Also plan on being on site everyday with the building crew. Like iwire posted I hope this is being done Time & Material.
The home owner is planing on drilling and pulling My main job is layout, service, and termination. All ceilings are exposed with tongue & grove Great room is 32' x 22' his wife does not want pendant lighting. Outside walls are round logs, bottom course has flat side (for outlets) everything else is gouge out with router and pray.
