Our wood walls in the garage are eather leaking through the joints or are absorbing water whenever it rains. This is causing a constant wet, almost mildewy smell in there. You can feel the moisture when you touch the wood on the inside of the Garage. We have a new roof on it as of maybe a year and a half ago. So im not thinking its from that. There are a couple cracks/gaps/holes in the old panels were you can see light coming through. My question is: do we need to repair from the outside, or the inside and what/how do we do it? This house was built in 1926 and we are slowly (because of $$) fixing her up. We are NEW homeowners willing to learn and become DIY'ers but have NO previous experience.


Any tips, comments, ideas, links would be greatly appreciated. If you need a photo i can provide that for you!!!
