The Backstory: Built in 1925, this classic log cabin had just received a fresh coat of linseed oil when Mount St Helens erupted in the spring of 1980, sending a cloud of volcanic ash far and wide across the Northwest. This unsightly residue remained on the log walls 40 years later when Jim and Pam Gosink decided to restore their beloved home.
The Process: After replacing some areas of log rot along the foundation, the exterior was then blasted using walnut shell media, sanded, and borate solution was applied. New synthetic-mortar chinking was completed, with the final stage being three coats of stain using Transformation Brown Tone Medium. This cabin is protected well into the future using our annual maintenance program.
