I purchased a new log cabin kit in Tennessee. It is actually log siding and not true logs. I want the cabin to look offwhite. Perma chink offers butternut but that is the lightest stain I have found. Is there any way to stain the log siding to make it look lighter than that? Thanks so much for your help. Apparently this is a rare request and no one in my area is clear on how to do this.


You do not want them too light or you will be having to do something to the stain every year. The lightest ones that Perma Chink has are the ones that have been tested to hold up a little better being so light. They used to have one called "Pickled". Try calling 800-564-2987 to see if you can still get it and maybe a sample.
