Aluminum Soffit and PVC Beam Wrap – Day 2

Day #126

June 5, 2020 – Aluminum soffit installation continues on the north side of the cottage I framed a two foot overhang along the new porch roof to give us a little more protection from the elements. My baker scaffold makes the installation process easier.

The installation of PVC trim boards and J Channels on the porch beams precede the soffit.

The porch roof has a shallow pitch so I decided against framing a tradition “Bird Box” at the corner. Instead I turned up the J Channel and aluminum soffit before it reached the gable end. This allows the soffit to make a smooth transition and proceed up along the gable rake. You can see this in the photo below and also in this photo, No Bird Box.

The soffit on side one is complete. Hang in there we are on the way to a new roof!
