We have an oak log home built in 1984 and the old mortar is cracking and falling out. Couple of questions. On a budget for my mother, is it ok to stuff news paper in the cracks and chink over that? What brand of chink should I purchase? Perma chink ? Also the logs have never been stained, what stain should I buy and how should I clean the logs before the stain? Thanks!
