I purchased a hand-hewn log home in Washington, and the bottom logs are getting wet from rain. What would you recommend to protect them? Would board shellac work if applied only to exterior walls, allowing wood to still breathe?


No shellac. Rain gutters would be a good start and then a good quility latex stain. Life Line would be a good choice.
