And I'm speaking from the experience of my aunt, who built her own log house (as in, the majority of every sort of work involved was done by her personally). It may well be that the pros have ways to deal with this problem, but that's just yet another argument to having it done by a pro (if at all).
It is certainly an argument for having a log cabin at least designed by a pro or using a kit. Log cabins are certainly easier to build than most types of construction, but that's just the labor. Like most things the devil is in the details.
