Has anyone here restored an 'old' handhewn log house. One is hiding under our vinyl siding and drywall. We would like to expose it and see what it's like, then either hide it again or restore it. Hopefully restore it. It was built late 1800's or early 1900's. Based on other log houses I've seen redone in this part of the state, there is probably very wide chinking between the logs. I'm sure this will need to be replaced & I was wondering if there is some kind of 'new' chinking to take the place of traditional mud or concrete. I've also heard that there may be some type of epoxy sealer that can be applied to repair and stablize the logs. never had much lock finding much info on restoring an old log house on the internet. I'm hoping someone here has done it.
