Next locate and maker the studs, as this allows for secure anchoring. Measure out the shiplap lengths, cut to size and use a finishing nail gun to anchor. make sure to leave a bit of space between rows, a craft stick works well here. Install half round or quarter round molding to cover corners. finish as desired.
