Siding question


I have these odd areas to side today up front.
I have J-channel up and grey starter strip ready, but that cutout is baffling me.
How the heck would any of you guys do the area marked?

Thanks!

Siding question


If you side all the way up the wall, how do you deal with the soffit up the gable end?
Wouldn't you install a 2x4 along the house face even with the fascia and side up to that. Then install the soffit material up the gable end?

Siding question


The problem was that the gable stuck out farther than the wall over an inch. I took care of THAT problem but this one has me stumped.
The ground to the gable is already sided.
Maybe I need to ask for a picture, or someone to edit the one(s) that I took/take?

Siding question


I would box in the soffit similar to this (Google pic). Id also run the gable soffit first then butt the siding J up to it. Notice in the pic the gable is also proud of the main wall.

Thats all well and good. Make the soffit first and then side to it.

Siding question


There is no venting going on there, so I do not plan on adding soffit. I was planning on just painting it white. Who's going to even look up there?
I just want to figure out how to deal with the notch. Add a piece of J-channel under the cut edge the last 18" or so on the left side and J-channel the 4" vertical drop on the right?

Thanks!

^ This. I just couldn't get it worded a way I thought was clear enough to follow, so appreciate Ron and Ron chiming in!

One of the drawbacks though is that it will make a great hangout for bats, which makes for a mess on the ground.

I'm wrapping the fascia board in alum. so I don't think bats will be a problem. Nothing for them to get a grip on.
Good thought though. Although as bad as the skeeters are this year, I'd welcome as many as wanted to hang out here!

Kinda what I figured.... My concern was the "upside down" piece of J-channel.
But being as it's under the overhang, I just don't see that much rain getting to it. I know it looks weird, but as soon as I'm done with this place and getting more jobs, someone ELSE is going to be hired to do Hardi on the whole place.
If my budget allows it, I may even go brick.

You can use UT on the left side instead of the J.
