Just curious...was there any particular reason why the panels were laid crossways instead of lengthwise, other than that's how long the panels were.

That's how you're supposed to lay them. If he ran them lengthwise, the panels would sag between the crossmembers.

Maybe the pictures were deceiving. And you're right, that's the only way possible.
