We are putting northern white cedar half log siding on our home. I’ve stripped the old siding and put Tyvek over the sheathing. My questions are as follows:
1) Do we need to caulk in between each tongue and groove or between logs after install?
2) Should I use a good exterior deck screw to attach the siding or galvanized nails?
3) Is the finishing process: Borate, caulk, stain, then topcoat in that order?

Thank you in advance,
D. Jones
