hahaha. Vinyl siding. As much as I hate installing Hardie, thats probably the route I would go. The stuff is bullet proof if installed correctly. I have WM LT15, but no trees anymore. I'm hoping to get some logs dropped off. Then I would really be in business. IMHO vinyl siding should be illegal, again, IMHO.  :D
My friend installed Hardie, told it had to be repainted after 10 years, for his 25 year warranty, got a quote to paint for 9K, he ended up putting vinyl siding on for 6K.
Nothing about a log home is inxpensive, especially when it has not been maintained.

Mine's been maintained and honestly said it was inexpensive. I worked for zilch but I felt good about doing that overall. :D 

The Forestry Forum is an "interesting place" to talk up vinyl siding on log homes? I mentioned it as a joke. I stripped a solid stain off my log home using Lowe's Olympic stripper. Then I sanded it with my 5" orbital Makita sander over a couple of weeks. Had to buy an under $10 new velcro disc for it, still use it. As I'd mentioned, I did try some corn cob grit using my portable compressor and a handheld sand blaster which was ineffective. That blaster is one I had for AB work with a stationary compressor. The logistics were poor to rent a cob blaster so I did what I could afford that gave a good result. Never did vinyl siding enter my mind. 
Few years back I read a local news article on vinyl siding. This journalist had hit something with a riding mower that had flown and busted some of her homes vinyl siding. She was amazed to learn that it was nearly a $1,000 repair to color match the siding for a small area of damage.

When I first started using Hardie, I ran into issues all the time. Being in a high fire danger area, it is more common than not to use Hardie. I believe that they have their manufacturing process down now, and if you follow their recommendations (which can be hard and expensive to do) you end up with a strong product that can last a lifetime. 

We have a huge pine beetle problem here in the west and thus, millions of trees are being cut down. I'll send some photos when I can. I have a connection with someone to get these trees to my property so I will probably use them to fix the aesthetic issue of the painted logs. I'm more of a carpenter, not a sander. Not saying I cant sand...I just don't want to.

Vinyl siding isn't used out here very much. In my experience, it's rare to see it. In the few instances that I have seen it it's been when a client wants it all gone so they can sell their house, because "no one wants to buy a house with vinyl siding." Not trying to sound like a brat but that's just my experience. The process of making it and the act of sending it all to the dump hurts the soul. My opinion.

Over in Denver, Boulder, CS's,  etc. there's probably plenty of that plastic stuff. I hear you on the dump thing. As I've played devils advocate you've taken it nicely, thanks!  ;D I'm not real keen on sanding either (paint stripping is even worse) but I do what I gotta do sometimes...
