We purchased a Tamarack log home built in 1986. The inside logs have been stained a dark red and cause the place to be too dark. The windows are quite small and the roof is cathedral style. The interior logs look as though there is no shine or protection other than the stain (color) itself. They are constantly collecting dust. Can we sand or corn cob blast the interior logs so that they become lighter?
Also, what kind of treatment, sealant protectant can we use to relieve some of the heavy dust


Sanding is going to be the best solution. Go with a good latex finish that is light or clear for the interior that will seal the wood from dust. Call Dave at 800-564-2987 for help with the finish materials.
