Explanation:
I'm going to hazard a guess that's what it means, since "soga" is a rope and "soguear" means "to measure with rope". I found some refs. to support this idea:

Text in Spanish (mentions "cuerdas")

En la misma plaza de Doña Casilda Iturrizar, en la casa nº 30, la ZUBIAUR originaria, hay un vano conopial de **borde sogueado**, probablemente del s. XVI, totalmente tapiado, quedando a la vista su alféizar decorado, con el mismo ***motivo de cuerda y pomas***.

a new sculpture element - the cornice made of stone blocks which presents the same twisted rope motif.

Recent architectural discoveries in the 1894 Donley County
Courthouse, shown below, include original pocket doors, fireplace
surrounds and an intricate pressed metal cornice detail that
features a rope motif and real rope.
