I have a 1880’s Doug fir log cabin built by my great grandpaents as a homestead in Montana. The logs are all in good shape but are starting to get a bit of dry rot. They may have been oiled over 20 years ago. What do you recomend for preserving the logs but not changing its color or look. Thanks,Boone Nolte

If the logs are not covered in any kind of finish I would give them a good healthy coat of borate, Shell Guard by Perma Chink would be a good choice. This will help stop/slow downthe log rot and help keep any wood eating insects out.
