Hello all,

we recently purchased a house which had a log cabin at the back. The cabin looks like a turn-of-the-century 2 story house and hasn't been maintained very well. I am interested in trying to keep that fun man-cave for as long as I can but I can't spend thousands of dollars into this project at this moment. I was wondering what I could do to stop the deterioration of the log ends as shown in the attached pictures. I saw wood epoxy repair products available online but they are pretty expensive and it looks like I'll need a lot. I was thinking of filling in the big and deep holes with expanding foam, then perhaps stuff the end with epoxy wood putty, would that work? Any suggestions?

I would just spray it with an insecticide wood preservative
