Where to caulk wood siding?

I live in a 1920 wood sided house in Climate Zone 4.  We’re in the process of removing the vinyl siding and painting the old clapboards.  The old siding is in surprisingly good shape and so far needs little repair/prep prior to painting.  I’ve started to caulk the vertical joints around windows, doors, corner trim, etc. but I question caulking the horizontal joint under each clapboard.   I had not planned to do so but I’ve have more than one person suggest caulking it and say they’ve done it or have seen in done on numerous occasions with no problems.

Summer’s Backdrop: Block-Printed Table and Bed Linens by Studio Ford

The linens I’ve been noting for summer dinner parties—and summer bedrooms? That would be Collection IV, the latest line of handmade textiles from Studio Ford, based in LA (and frequent collaborators with Commune). The collection is inspired by the tradition of overshot weaving; popular in the US at the turn of the 19th century, it’s easily recognized by its repeated geometric patterns, but Studio Ford’s take is made using the block printing techniques that sparked their own beginnings.Take a look at some of the subtly colorful, subtly patterned—and, often, reversible—quilts, tablecloths, and throws.Photography by Giulio Ghirardi.Above: The block-printed percale Toledo…

Who are good suppliers for spray foam insulation kits?

I’m considering getting a spray foam insulation kit to finish sealing my rim joist insulation and looking for a reputable supplier. I have installed 3 1/2″ polyiso blocking to the rim joist between the floor joists and would like to put a layer of foam over the blocking to seal the blocking in and deal with any penetrations thru the rim joist and bottom plate leading to the first floor.  I’m also planning to use some foam to seal in some foam blocking that is above my top plate on the wall in a few locations, especially where I will…
