Default How to deal with seams on Nantucket beadboard

Hello,

I am getting ready to install a Nantucket Beadboard product on our walls. This stuff is 3/8" thick, it is actually a v-groove 6" apart, 4x8 sheets. I have never used this stuff before so I am wondering about the seams. It would be nice if it had a toungue and groove on the edges of the sheet. I assume that the seem will land in one of the v-grooves though. If not, how could I hide the seams

Any advice would be appreciated.

It has a lap joint hidden in the bead, at least what I have seen has. This from their site.

No kidding? I didn't look that close at the site I guess. 8 or 9 hours in the sun yesterday has made me almost completely useless today.

I guess I am just nervous, this is expensive stuff.

Thanks

The height depends on a number of things. What is the ceiling height? Where do the windows start/end? What purpose do you propose for the breadboard besides the "look"?
