We have a cypress log home, twp 100 honey is the stain on the house. It was professionally restrained after using the recommened bleach ratio and house striped like a zebra and was sanded to bare wood. I have added stain ever 1 to 2 years. We have a short window of free time and weather. Our land is a pine farm so the pollen is brutal. We can not stain in spring or it will be full of pollen. I washed the house and noticed the water running off in 2 different ways. Some spread and others stayed in rain like droplets. What does that tell me about the stain? There is a covered porch extending 10 feet from the house. The bottom logs get more sun exposure. You can see the difference in color. Since the walls are covered if I wash and leave for 2 days but it rains on day 1, do I need to wait for day 3 or because the wall stays dry I can keep on schedule and stain on day 2? I have a fresh order of stain that just arrived and 2 more days before the kids are home for 4 days.
