We have been building a log home for about 2 years on our own to save on contractors costs. The roof is ready to be installed and I need to do something to the logs because they are weathered. I was told to bleach them and to start from the botom up. Is this true? My logs are cypress and I would like them to be the lightest color log possible but yet have a shiny wet look. What do you recommend and in what order? Thanking you in advance. T.F.
