Recently purchased a 15 yr old, D-log construction, mountain home in WA. All interior walls and ceilings are shiplap pine, all fur beams are exposed. The wood is georgous but almost overwhelming and my wife and I are conidering buffering the "all wood" interior with some sheet rock on a portion of the interior D-log walls. If we procede, would furing stripes be required on this age of home or would all significant settling be done? I'm hesitant to add the additional thickness that the furing strips would add to the wall sections we are considering. http://www.askthelogdoctor.com/we-moved.html"

Even though it is 15 years old the logs are still going to move with temperature difference.  I would recommend that you use the fur stripping with slid slots cut into them where attached to the logs.
