you want to line up the front top edge of sub fascia with the pitch of the roof rafter and the roof sheathing will come out onto the sub fascia a little bit, no need for a bevel as long as the top edge is not to low or sticking up past the pitch plane of roof.

Is there directions online for the cornice box? So, If I don't bevel cut the top edge of the sub fascia then how will the sheathing lay flat?

gable end question


you are talking about a plumb cut not a bevel. you should nail a 1x6 to the rafter then cap it with coil. then you butt your j channel to the capped 1x and that will do it. your drip edge will cover your capped 1x at the top

gable end question


yes I know how to frame them, they are actually called gable end cornice returns. without an over hang they really cant be done without complicated moulding and I take it your not a professional since your asking this question. I would stick with what I said about the 1x unless you pull sheathing off and frame an overhang over your gable

What did you say about the 1x again? How much of an overhang on the end gable would be needed? My soffit overhang is 6". If I don't add any overhang to the gable end do you have any idea what I can do for a flush fascia piece of cover the vinyl siding on the rake wall?

Install a barge board, then a pre-primed 1 x pine rake board. The Barge will be 1.5 inches projecting out, and the rake board will hang down about 2 inches past the bottom of the barge board. This will give you a pocket for your siding. Put the siding on before the rake, of course, so you can tack the top in. When roofing, install felt out to face of the rake. Install drip metal, then envelope with ice dams, then extend shingles 1 knuckle (Inch) past the break in the metal.

Do you know how to frame soffit return boxes? Do you have to have a end gable rake overhang to have a soffit return? I can't seem to find anywhere online with instructions.
