We are looking at a log house near Abilene, KS. We like the house a lot, but we are concerned about a couple of things. First, it has been painted. Second, the north side of the house has obviously been repaired. Spots have been filled with a spongy filler. In addition, some logs have areas covered with metal. Structurally everything seems sound. No signs of sagging or settling. Should we just walk away? Sale price of house seems good, but is it going to be a money pit?
