If I wanted to scratch-build this general store, which Evergreen sheets would I need for the "clapboard siding" (if that's what it's called)?

I guess I'll also need to use the same "clapboard siding" for the white house in the background:

I can't figure out what the "spacing" is supposed to be for HO.

Do any of you know?
