It is made from hand hewn Tamarac and the portion above the log wall on the face going to the point of the roof is covered with a rough cut lumber (Assumed to also be tamarac). The western exposure of the house is weathered pretty good (Sun faded and graying) the other three sides are a little bit darker and I believe the previous owner said that it is linseed oil with no stain. What can I do to get the western side of the home back to the


It needs to be media blasted. I would recommend blasting the whole thing and start over with a good latex log home stain. The linseed oil will only continue to turn dark. Call Mike at 866-670-3020 for help.
