(third try with question--maybe I am just not looking in the right place for a response?)

Dear helpful Log Doctors, We have a 100+ y.o. log cabin in NC, likely pine. The cabin has long overhangs on all but one side, where it is in shade and the logs look a lot darker, though feel dry. As far as we can tell the logs have never been treated. Both inside and out everything has always seemed fine. Is it still necessary to seal them? If so, with what? And should we worry about the shaded, dar


If it has never been stained and you like the look I would recommend a LIGHT wash and apply a good borate solution like Shell Guard and call it good.
