I have a cyprus log house in MS and I really don't want to deal with the maintenance of it anymore. My question is can I put siding over it and what kind?


You can side it with almost anything, but be sure to replace any rotten logs, if any, first or you could have structural issues later.

There's a very old log house in our family. My ancestor bought it in the 1820's. The house has had very little renovation since the 1840's. The house has been through so much and the basic structure is still standing even with all the neglect. However, boards are falling off now. But, the main structure even the roof is still standing firm. It's own a national historic site as endangered. Everyone states it would take millions to repair it. I was thinking of just stabilizing it and keeping it authentic. Is this possible without costing millions. I don't know anything about this, but it almost unbearable to see this neglected. Any ideas?
