Here is another thing I see that I dont understand. When i put up my soffit panels and attach a j or f channel to the end wall how do I get my vinyl siding into that channel as well. I see pictures of soffit and vinyl siding and I only see one channel for the soffit.

a lot of times you work the soffit panels from one side and slide them down the line, leave a cornice off of one side of overhang and slide in your soffit panels there and once the soffit is all filled in put on your cornice.

oops, edit. I think you use another J up side down for the siding and another facing the soffit for the soffit- been so long since I've touched vinyl siding... there is the little termination piece that works at the top of a cut piece of vinyl siding also that laps up into the J channel.

sorry Mark I missed the question in regards to brick. if you wanted to have real brick then your foundation typically would have a brick shelf. This is typically (depending on your brick, air space and any rigid insulation board) 4" so that the foundation can support the brick.
