I’ve noticed that the gable ends of barns tend to an upper course of vertical siding overlap a lower course. See attached image for example. I’m guessing this is because a single board cannot span the entire height of the gable end, and the overlap is a simple way to shed water across the horizontal joint. What I can’t figure out is how you get the upper boards to bend out and overlap the lower course. If you know, please do share!
