I own a Sears and Robuck designed house built in 1909. I am about to repaint the house,however i have a delima. I don't believe there is sheething underneath the clapboards. I think they just nailed the to the wood frame of the house. This tends to make the house quite drafty. I was planning to caulk all the siding during the paint project, but then i thought; should I? How will it effect the moisture content in the walls? Most likely there is no moisture barrier to speak of since there is no sheathing.
There you go. What-a-ya-think?
