Do you mean after you tuck the cpt wall to wall he doesn't want to see the 1 or so of concrete from the bottom log to the floor ? If that is what you are asking , I would just let the cpt cove up to it .. much nicer then 1/4 round ..

There was a time I did a number of log homes here. Unfortunately, those were before I carried a camera ever'where I went. Most of the time, this is what I did: Baseboard all around. Since the logs are round and usually slope back at the floor line or at the top of the base, I had to use fillers. The top I used square base and angled the part that touched the log so it looked like a shelf or really thick base. The bottom I just marked the floor where the base back would be and nailed a 1x1 filler stick so I could nail into it and prevent the base from being bumped and bent backward. It actually looked really nice and my customers liked it a lot. It made it much easier to clean too. I just charged for the time and material it took and it was a pretty good add-on. Jim

Here' another rustic solution I've used. Hemp rope, in whatever diameter you need. Looks cool in the right spot.
