I have a log home on a harbor in northern Michigan.
I have been here about 18 years, and recall when the cabin was painted a cherry red; in the past10 years, it was painted by a professional with some combination of paint , stain and sealant.
The NE side if the cabin is nearly bare logs now, so I decided to paint that side the original cherry paint- now I am reading NEVER paint logs as they will rot. It is half painted! Help! How should I proceed? I have 10 days and leave then for winter!th


You can finish painting to protect for winter, but you need to get the paint removed in the next couple of years and go to a good log home stain like LifeLine. Call Mike at 866-670-3020 for help and an estimate.
