I have started dismantling several waves of 'renovations' on my deceased grandparents old home. It was originally put up as a log cabin in the mid 1800's and covered with wood siding and brick on the exterior, plaster and paneling on the interior. When removing the plaster upstairs I saw the beautiful old hand hewn logs and hoped to leave some exposed in the finished reno. Downstairs however when I started to remove plaster many of the logs, especially behind the brickwork that surrounds the house up to 4 feet, were rotted and soft to the touch, I assume a mix of moisture and termites. Is there anything I can do or have I just discovered that this house, though standing, is just too unsafe to fix and use?
