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 :wink:

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.

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
