In planning for our retirement home we are interested in properties that line or are very close to saltwater bays and estuaries. Understandably logs have stood the test of time in many regions, is a saltwater environment one of them? Is there a specific treatment you recommend for these conditions? Would Cedar logs be a better suit than Pine logs? Thanks in advance for your thoughts and answers.


Cedar logs would definitely resist rot better. What ever your choice be sure to borate treat them before staining.
