Refinishing Cedar tongue and groove siding


I have vertical tongue and groove cedar siding on the front of my house and it needs refinished. It was done before we moved in but it's been several years and I want to re-stain it.

Should I power wash it, sand it, both???

What's the best way to apply the stain... brush, roller etc.? It's on the shady side of my house so I guess I don't need to worry about the sun baking it in while I'm doing it.

What about cutting in around the windows and doors too... will I get lap marks if I cut in before I do the rest?

Thanks guys!
