Joining T-111 on a shed?

What steps do I need to take to prevent water leaks when butting 2 sheets of T-111 on a shed wall?

Can the sheets be pressed together tightly, or does a small gap need to be left for expansion?

Should the seam be caulked before painting?

Should a piece of trim be placed over the seam?

If you are joining two sheets with a horizontal joint, there is a piece of flashing made for that purpose.

I don't use flashing. when instaled properly you do not need it. It is sealed by reverse board and batton. the board being the T-111 and the batton being the stud. I build lots of barns and they do not leak.
