Good references in how to paint a wood house?

I'm looking in the web for good references to paint my house, it is a pre fabricated house LIKE, (Wood House). I was thinking something in Brown color and white, and I'm looking for some techniques.

I'm not looking into hire somebody to do the job, I will do the job myself. I just want to find some answers, about:

  • What kind of paint is best to wood houses: Oil Paint ?
  • How to give an old look to the wood, what is the technique used for?
  • and, finally whatever is important to know about paint a house. I'm a NEWBIE!!! o_O

thanks anyway folks!
