We are in the process of buying a log home that was built in 1986. The interior color of the logs are very dark red. They are cedar logs. There are all kinds of light fixtures and chandeliers but it is still too dark. I love the wood but like advice on how we can lighten it up to a good extent. What is the process/ steps we need to do this?



The best way is going to be grind and sand them back to bare wood and then apply lighter stain or just a clear stain.
