We are building a log home and our latest shipment of log siding looks different from the logs we received before. The siding has gray colored sections, where the previous logs did not have any discoloration. Is this anything to be concerned with? Does the gray color mean the log has started to decay? Or is it just ”character” as the log company explains? The log is made of lodgepole pine.Thanks!

It means the siding sat out in the sun for a while to discolor it. I doubt that it is rotten. Yes, it will matter when you stain. Most likely you will see the color difference. I would recommend that you or your log home company sand this siding before it is installed.
