We are looking at purchasing a log cabin built in 1932 in Southeast Alaska. It has been ”finished” with drywall or the like throughout the cabin. Can this drywall be safely removed and the logs restored? Will the drywall have trapped too much moisture? It also has a coat of paint on the outside, should we remove this?

Yes, You should be able to restore the interior logs after removing the drywall. Sanding would be the best way. And yes, the paint should be removed from the exterior and have a stain applied.
