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.. but I would like to see some samples before start the hard work. Maybe 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 a 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!
