Cracking has not been a problem, to my knowledge. This house is in a remote area on top of Bear Mountain in Maine and I have not been there in over a year. It is subjected to severe weather. The wood is going to move with the seasons. As I recall it's 7 1/4" wide.

I don't have records of the wall color. You might want to look at Ben Moore Bone White and Navajo White

Yes, I can help. A topographic survey and boundary survey are very helpful.
