Sheathing and Fascia


I'm building a shed. The rafters are 24" OC, with a "tail" to form a eaves.

What I'm not sure about is:

1) Should I attach the Fascia board before or after I install the roof sheathing?

2) Should the sheathing go over the fascia board (or stop at the end of the tail)? If not, I assume the paper and shingle would overlay the fascia.

I'd like a balance of "doing it right" and not spending an extraordinary amount of time on it

Thanks in advance.

You should extend the sheathing the 3/4" beyond the tails or if there is a rough fascia, beyond that.

I forgot about the fascia when I put the roof sheathing up over my portico and attached the fascia to the tails and sheathing. It didn't really matter.

I put the fascia up 1st

Drip edge/gutter apron covers the area where they connect

Fascia first, break sheathing middle of it. Paper over fascia so it sags with age and hides ply. Roofing 1 knuckle past fascia. Be safe, G
