perplexing soffit corner
1 Attachment(s)
how would you guys go about finishing up this soffit end? do i need a wedge shaped triangle of soffit supported at the end somehow? or should i do it like i did in the background shed when i do the siding? i thought that looked strange, but hey, it's just a shed and no soffits either... the next f-channel to go up to the peak will be about four inches higher than the one there already, leaving me a big gap to deal with. any pics how someone else has handled this would be appreciated. i'm confused... but what else is new?

This should help. I had the same question months ago.

that did not help. it only showed how to do it if the soffit is slanted, not flat like mine. but thank you for the effort! =o) how's YOUR project going?

get your self a 2x8 or 2x10 cut it about 30" long. put it against the bottom of the rafter against the fascia board. take a level and level a horizontal line from the fascia back to the house. when your about 4" past the house corner make a plumb mark up. cut these two marks and install with nails and a block back towards the house. this would be called a pork chop.BOB
