I purchased a 10 yr old kit log cabin in NY Adirondacks. There were many issues esp moisture which we hv resolved by regrading, installing French drains around perimeter of building and removing lg kerosene tank which was actually leaning on the rear wall causing moisture to be trapped behind it. Upon removing the kitchen cabinets on the interior of this wall we noted insect tunneling, horizontal tunnels with a pile of sawdust on the floor below, it appeared old, no insects, dead or alive were

If you are going to have cabinets in same place you could sand down those logs and apply a good borate treatment like Shell Guard RTU. it can only be applied to bare wood. If you strip the exterior it should be applied to the entire exterior before applying new stain.
