I live in a log home built in 1987. Some walls in the house need to be sanded. They have scracthes and are dirty. How do I go about it?? Do i need to do the whole house. also do people seal the inside of thier log homes.


An Orbital sander will do the job for you but can be slow, but you will get a real nice finish. A side grinder with a sanding disc is faster but will not give as nice a finish. Also, it can be quit dusty with the side grinder. Having the interior sanded and finished with a light honey color covered with an acrylic sealer will help in cleaning when it comes time to dust the logs.
