This Northern White Cedar Log home was constructed in 1985.  The finish seen here was not applied until 2008; in the interum the logs and siding had turned a pleasing silver gray.  The photo was taken in 2013.

Customers have been asking for a product that does not darken with time.  So, I contacted a chemist at Sikkens.  It seems that pigment is required to provide UV protection
(retarding sun damage) for the log walls..
