Hi.  We have a milled pine log cabin in the U.P.  It is unheated/uninhabited in the winter, except when we make an occasional snowshoe or xc ski trip into it, from the neighbors' house. We seal it every fall with Australian Timber Oil.  (We've used other products previously, but because this has the lowest VOC level, we've used it for the past 2 years.)  We also caulk the cracks before sealing.  Every spring when we return for a holiday weekend there, we find dried water puddles on the floor, along with water stains on the inside logs.  The windows are fully caulked/sealed.  This is not a chinked log home.  This year, my husband tried walling off the outside to see if keeping the astronomical amount of snow away from the logs would help. However, when we skied into the cabin last week, we still experienced new water stains/wet logs on the cabin's inside.  It's all a few feet from the bottom; there's a brand new metal roof, so it's not a roof issue.  We're wondering two things.  One, since the logs that are inside the cabin are not sealed, is there a way to remove the water stains so the color of logs is once again uniform?  And secondly, what do you suggest doing to the outside to prohibit this from happening every year?  We contemplated adding a covered porch to the front that's getting the brunt of this issue, but for various reasons, that's not practical.  Any serious suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
