The ceiling attached part of the internal wall frame is actually just a guide, which isn't connected to the bottom, floor-standing part of the wall at all. The top of the walls will have a slider which fits over the outside of the ceiling guide, but which doesn't actually attach. Likewise, the ends of the internal frames which attach to the outer walls have simple screws only at the very bottom, next to the floor, while all of the other attachment points further up the log wall have the screws fitted into vertical slots in the frame, to allow for settling of the external walls. The ceiling gap is especially noticeable in this photo, where the ceiling angles downwards on the side of the unit bathroom.
