I am considering purchasing a log home from a friend of mine. He built it in 1978. It's deminsions are 98'X23'. Over the years with repeated stainings the exterior has turned a very dark black. I was told that lighting the appearance would be impossible b/c the stain absorbs deep into the logs. Is this true?


Corn cob blasting will remove most of it. The hard grain of the wood may be darkend some, but it would look 100% better if you strip all of this off. Call Mike at 866-670-3020 for help and costs.
