we purchased a log home built in the mid 80’s. Logs are “D” logs and the interior is stained dark brown which makes the whole interior very dark. We love the plain clear coat natural look and not interested in sanding everything and dealing with the mess, not to mention the un-evenness of the finished look. Has anyone put 1x8 tongue and groove boards directly over their logs on the interior side ? I know this will be more expensive than sanding. Any advice ?
