bowed walls log home

Posted by dolly on October 26th, 2002 07:12 PM

hello, dont know a whole lot about construction, so ill try to sound literate. we are looking to buy a log home, a repo. it is an "a-frame" cathedral ceiling in front. the two exterior side walls to the left and right of the house have 2 huge bolts each, about 3 feet apart, up high near the roof area from the inside to the out. on the outside, there are blocks they are attached to. the realestate agent said they also had chains on the inside running across the home attached to each other. is this a "come along" ? my main question is, as a first time homebuyer really wanting a log home, not able to afford to build, love the land this one sits on, is it feasible to fix this? the foundation and basement were very dry, very good condition (we looked at the house today in the rain) no dampness at all. the roof also appears in very good condition. ive been searching all day for the reason for the bowing and if it can be fixed within our budget. evidentally, the original owners ran out of money, its unfinished, the home is a repo, they never got to live in it. there is no overhang to the roof, either.
