1. I asked Paul and this is his reply:
      With regard to expansion it will be impossible for them to expand to such a degree that they will cause any other component or joint to fail. There could be some shrinkage. There is not much we can do about this however, my experience has shown that if you ensure your wood has a moisture content less than 10% you will not have a problem as there will be 0 shrinkage most likely.

  1. Thanks Katrina! I wonder if any shrinkage problem (even if such a problem is unlikely with properly dried wood, as you suggest) would be solved with shiplap which I think could get a similar appearance. Just a thought.
