This home, built in the 80's, suffered from years of neglect, until the current owners took it over. The stain on the logs was faded and pealing in many areas. We blasted the log walls, applied a borate treatment, replaced about 125 feet of rotting logs, and then stained and chinked the building.
Chinking is not always necessary or desired. In this case, the logs were hand scribed but they were done rather crudely. This 'rough" scribing made for some rather large gaps between the logs. In order to keep the weather and insects out, we recommended chinking the logs.
Chinking is many times thought of as a wide line of material in a contrasting color to the logs. In this particular case, the new chink lines were mostly about an inch wide and the owners chose a color that nearly matched the color of the stain in order to minimize the contrast.
