We recently bought a cottage that has faux log siding. The house is framed from 2×4 and the exterior is covered with what looks like 2×8 with a log shape milled into them. There is no type of tonque and grove on the board edge.

What type of caulk should be used on the horizonal seems?

Was this type of siding common? It loooks origina
