fixing eaves


I think what we're looking at is cedar shingles overhanging the shingle mould to create a drip space. I suspect the shingle mould was added beyond the edge of the sheathing, so a course of cedar shingles was added to extend the sheathing. Are the gaps random or all the same width?

The "eave" is the bottom of the roof - where the gutter would go.

The "rake" is the sloped sides of a gable roof.

This appears to be a hipped roof, which would not have rakes.

The gaps are all the same width around the entire house, I looked at hipped roof and this is exactly what it is, weird cause it's the only house on the block with this type. I took a couple pictures up close to attempt to see inside the space.
