Hi, I purchased a log home in RI this year we are fixing it up it was neglected. We got a painter who power washed it and stained it with linseed oil then caulked between the logs it looks great, but just read never power wash a log cabin are we in trouble and what can we do? thanks


Not much now. More than likely it will turn black over time form the combination of power washing and the linseed oil. You will want to strip it when that day comes by sanding or media blasting and then use a good latex log home stain.
