Craftsman Style Home Designs

The Craftsman style home evolved out of the arts and crafts movement that was started in England when Augustus Pugin, a British architect, went against the poor quality of mass-produced homes.

It's similar to tongue and groove, except shiplap uses a rabbet on the top and bottom of the board instead of a groove. The L-shaped rabbet allows the boards to overlap each other while still leaving a small space between the boards. This creates a wall with horizontal lines – or vertical, if you choose to go that way. The way the grooves fit together makes shiplap weatherproof.
