my husband and I want to build a log house from old logs. We have found an old barn with interior logs and also an old farm house which the logs are covered with siding. can these type logs be used on the exterior ? we have been told that these logs would probably rot fast because they have not had weather exposure. If they can be used is there any type treatment necessary to do so and what is the average cost of such treatment?
