Never seen anything quite like it. Very appealing, but I wonder about the longevity of the logs. It looks like you might be able to remove and replace them if they decomposed naturally. I'm thinking of the tree I had cut down. I lined my garden with the cut pieces, as a natural edging for a raised bed. I'm expecting them, over time, to decay and become part of the soil. Granted, these timbers are not resting on soil, but the bark is likely to dry out and fall away, and insects will begin snacking on the wood, followed by woodpeckers snacking on the insects, which might be very amusing to watch. Or maybe the bark is already stripped, it's hard to tell. Well, a fun house.
