Board and batten siding question

3 years ago

We are having board and batten siding put up on our house. On the side elevations, there are long vertical expanses where there will be multiple sheets needed to reach the top. So there will be a horizontal seam between each row of sheets. Our architect says that the seam will not be noticeable once it's painted. I'm not convinced as I notice the seams in Houzz pics I'm finding.

Anyone have an opinions/first hand experience with this? We will be having Hardie shakes at the very top of our gables/peaks, but only the last 6 feet or so, so mostly board and batten.
