I'm sloely working on a project for a friend residing a animal shelter with board and batton. I've got 1x8 boards on and now need to decide on the batton width. The boards will have up to 1/4" gap between them because there was a rush to get them up(lambs on the way) and the boards were both very green(shrinkage) and they had ice on them when I put them up(scraped as much of it as I could off but still held them apart a bit). I'm thinking of going with 2" battons but I'm not sure how that will look. Any thought?
