bird boxes / cornice returns / soffit transition to gable rake..


Not sure exactly what the name of these little areas are. I have read so many names I have lost track of what they are. These areas in question are the little box parts on the end that transition the eave soffit to the rake soffit.

I had no idea how to do these from the get go, and I am still struggling. I'm pretty sure what I do have now is incorrect.



After looking at numerous houses with these little boxes, I see that none of them return any further than the corner. My design I came up with has them returning about 1' into the rake walls-past the corner. While I'm sure this would work, it doesn't look normal so it isn't going to stay up there. I think I will reconsider how to do this and tear this stuff I have done down today.

I understand much about this framing stuff, but this is the one area that isn't really clear. In order to do the soffit trim (vinyl siding), this has to be right. That's a whole other issue that I'm still trying to figure out as well.

What I’m seeing is along with your vinyl siding and soffit installation you now also need a roll of coated aluminum coil and a brake.

The coil stock is in my quote. However, I don't have a brake. Still wondering what I'm going to do about that.

In the mean time, I think I fixed the boxes and have something more acceptable now.

Nope, you need a brake IMO to look like a pro job.
