Double sheath siding overlap

Richard Townsend

Was there, on double-sheathed cars with wood sheathed ends, a general practice regarding whether the side sheathing overlapped the end sheathing, or vice-versa? Or was there a design convention that made it impossible to tell which overlapped which? My real question is whether looking at a car side or end one could see a narrower board "width" on one or the other reflecting the thickness (as opposed to the real width) of the overlapping board?
