My aunt has a cedar log home she built in 1992, we are now lookng at selling it. We have filled interior cracks with a sawdust based putty mix and sanded the walls down. She is in fear that since the filler was lighter it will show thru after staining and has decided to just paint the walls!! I believe this will bring down the value. is it not normal to have some fillings of cracks visable? and wouldn't just painting and covering the wonderful wood inside bring down the value?


I would recommend leaving it as is for the new owner to decide. Most people do not want painted logs
