I am considering purchasing a log home that was built in 2003. The logs are pine. They are tongue and grooved on top of each other. About 5 years ago the previous owner power washed the cabin. With to much pressure, he blow water through the logs where the ends meet and were caulked; not through the tongue and grove. There are water marks on the inside walls where the water ran down. He did this to almost all the outer walls. I have been in the cabin when it is raining and when the snow is


The water marks will have to be sanded out of the wood if possible. Unfortunately you may have to sand the entire wall to avoid non-matching.
