We recently purchased a half log sided home which the previous owners painted grey. We would like to restore the exterior to a traditional log cabin color. Not sure if we want the cost and effort of cob blasting, do you have any recommendations for paint color?


You do not want paint on wood. It will cause surface rot over time. Solid color stain is the best if you want the painted look.

You could try liquid stripper, but I'm not a big fan of the process. It normally will not remove 100% of the existing finish. You could also sand the old finish off, but it will be slow and tedious. It will work though. Maybe a combination of both.
