We have a Real Log home – 17 yrs old. Due to poor maintenance, pretty much the entire back side of our house – the logs have began to rot. We do not have the funds to replace the logs. My brother-in-law is a builder. He has suggested cutting back the rot, sealing and putting on some type of cedar siding. Have you seen this done? Can you give me any other suggestions? We are in great need of help.
