I am building a log cabin and was wondering about using spray foam insulation between the ceiling and the underside of the roof. Is this a good method of insulation?

It seems that you know the importance of good insulation. Since you have a shingle style roof, spray foam insulation would be your best option. The company TAMKO put out technical notice recently that I think you would like to read. That link is description. It particularly addresses shingle roofs.

Replacing the insulation under the roof will give you a fresh start with your new tile roof. A few things to consider are whether that attic space is vented or unvented. Are you planning on closed cell or open cell foam insulation? To help answer these questions I would check out this article. description.

Spray foam insulation is a good option for a log cabin. I would recommend using a closed cell spray foam though. This can help to keep moisture away from the beautiful logs. A case study on a home in West Virginia could help you. The link to that study is description.
