I inherited a 30 year old log house that has never been maintained. An inspector found much log rot and his opinion is that it is too far gone to restore. The logs are covered with latex paint. If i install vinyl siding over logs will they continue to rot? The structure seems very stable right now.

Yes, they will continue to rot. It would be best just to get the logs replaced. It will be expensive, but the cost to build a new structure would be far more.
