flush siding

flush siding

A wood exterior covering on the walls of a colonial New England house of wood-frame construction; commonly made of pine boards that have been sawn and planed smooth. These boards, applied horizontally, are usually wider than ordinary clapboard and are nailed flat against the studs; the upper edge is often beveled and may be overlapped by the board above.
