How to paint a wood house?

I'm looking for good resources for painting a wood house. I'm looking for the proper tools and techniques.

I don't want to hire somebody to do the job, I would like to do it myself. I just need to know:

  • What kind of paint is best to use on a wood house: Oil, latex, something else?
  • What techniques are there to give the house an aged look?
  • What other important information should I know before painting a house.
