Tenting can be harmful to some log homes. If it is the style of log that has a gasket in between each log, the gas from tenting can break down the foam gasket and cause leaking to occur. I would recommend corn blasting the finish off and having a good quality borate treatment applied and then re-stain. It will probably be about the same cost and you end up with a fresh new finish. Use a borate with a glycol base so that it penetrates the wood deeper. As for structural integrity, powder post beetle typically will not be a problem.
