Can anyone provide me some companies that specialize in removing stain from my log home. I would like to strip down to the bare wood and basically start fresh.

Hey Todd, Nice looking place,Thought I would comment on your roof where it meets the chimney near the peak. Perhaps you should consider a cricket or some kind of diverter to prevent a possible leak down the road.Even though it's flashed,stone is porous and the house is moving and the combination can effect the flashing.  Jim Harbin

Hey Todd, Cob blasting can be a mess and you will still need to get the media from between joints. We just restored a badly damaged log home that had two coats of solid stain. Sand blasting did the trick and then we used Weatherguard oil to feed the logs and added tint for U.V. protection. You don't want to effect the PH of the logs. Blasting requires major equipment that can be rented. You might consider hiring a pro to do the blasting and then you can apply the preservative. Good luck, Jim Harbin Katahdin Cedar Log Homes PS- Judging by your pictures, You may have vegetation too close to your logs
