I have a 1930 log cabin, and the interior logs are rounded,ugly, and have a lot of chinking. I really love the outside look, but the interior is unattractive, dark, and also a dust collector. Can I simply cover them with shiplap siding, or will this compromise the log integrity and "breathing"?

Covering them will not hurt anything, but if you want to keep the log interior you could remove all of the chinking, sand or grind the logs smooth, stain and clear coat and then apply new chinking.
