Caulk is still flexible, certainly flexible enough to cope with expansion and contraction that your talking about.
B&Q sell Soudal which is cheap, it is a big trade manufacturer of sealants and actually a lot of other sealants are rebranded Soudal, I work in double glazing and a joiner and have used all sorts of sealants over the years, I would look to buying caulk either from Soudal or Everbuild.

Noticed that you're windows have bottom flashings but no top flashings - point of entry for water????? Water loves travelling up hill in tight spacers so anti travel lips or prevention gap etc (not sure what you may call them in the uk?)
I have noticed or perhaps no pics were taken of the area, but there's no diagonal bracing in the walls - or triangulation between bottom plate and vertical corner posts? Nothing to do with moisture initially, but may help to prevent movement from wind loading....
I know what you mean about no space - built me a garden shed and its filled to the pineappleper with mini spares......

Glenno, the windows have since been finished and are sealed up loverly, they are the best of the garage!

There are 'noggins' inbetween each each vertical post which made the shell very solid - this thing doesnt move atall

I like cheap

Ive used the Soudal stuff quite alot and always found it ok, just never otside before. Was just concerned that it (caulk) would go brittle and crack/fall out.

I'll get one and do a test to see how it works as the routered edge of each board is quiye small so I will need a very fine bead.

I would check the caulk before using externally...bad idea I think as caulk always always shrinks

two options
strip weatherboard and use breathable membrane
or use a solid board insulation such as kingspan ( foil faced closed cell polyuerhtane foam boards ) b&q sell jablite which is like a dense polystyrene

is that the 255mm flipover or 305mm?
I would suffer the heart ache and do it right or it willnot get fixed properly and its a shame to cut corners when you can cut more wood.ps nice work

we should have the man cave gallery and build pics
