We had a log home (pine) built during the sumer and fall of 2011. As the weather turned colder upon competion of the cabin, it was recommended that we not stain the exterior until the temperature, both day and night, would exceed 50 degrees. Some parts of the exterior logs have weathered to a gray color, and it appears that they should be washed before any staining is done. As there is no stain on the exterior at this time, how do you recommend preparing the cabin for staining.
