Hello, we own a log cabin that is appoximately 16 years old. When we purchased it 8 years ago it had just been stained–we have done nothing since. First, how can I determine what type of home I own and secondly can you give me guidelines on basic maintenance of logs. Do all log homes need to be cleaned, caulked, other treatments etc. I know the original owner did the work himself, I believe it was a log home kit and the home is log on the inside as well, no sheet rock.

Thanks in advance.
