Question:


we are restoring a log home that was built in the 1800's maybe even earlier. my question is this. the home has no chinking and never has. the logs are stacked on top of each other and are flat on the inside and out with the dovetailed corners. its a 2 story home. have you ever seen a log home like this before? there are no gaps and it was pinned together with wooden pegs. we were told to use walnut shells to blast the inside walls. when we tried to do it with our sand blaster it wouldnt push it

Answer:

You should try using ground corn cob, I think it will work better and give you a nicer finish.
