Pine Carsiding questions


Hello, I have recently bought a old farmhouse in Iowa. I have completely remodeled the interior of the home and now its warming up and the exterior needs some tlc. I have always wanted a cabin look for my home. I have searched several different options. This is what I decided and would appreciate some expert opinions. I decided that I like the pine carsiding look, tongue and groove. What is the best way to attach to home? Sealing the wood is a given right? Do I need to wrap the home before I side it? It has 4x8 wood siding on it now. Can I side right over the top? Those are the questions I have and if you can think of anything else I may need to know please let me know. Thanks for your time.

Pine Carsiding questions


Pine wood siding? How will you protect this wood?
There's a reason you don't see this on houses as you drive around where you live.

How do you expect to flash a 1/4 log so water doesn't rot out the wood?
