We purchased a 30 yr old Ward Cedar log home. The previous owners can't remember what was used to "paint" the exterior logs. It is a solid brown color (looks like brown paint!). We really love the look of natural wood, can you suggest where to go from here: blasting, stripping etc. Thanks


If it is truly paint it needs to be removed. It will have to be corn cob blasted and possibly sanded to remove. Use a solid color stain if you want to keep the look.
