Batten Strip Removal

Submitted By

Hello.  I have a premanufactured home on a crawlspace in Cincinnati. The house has batten strips (I believe that is what they are called - vertical trim pieces every four feet).  Is there a way to remove these to make normal walls? Could you just tape it and spackle it or drywall over it? Also, would the repair crack with the change of seasons?  Thanks, love the show.
