South Side Soffit Installation – Day 4

Day #127

June 7, 2020 – Yesterday I made it around the south west corner with the soffit. Today I am working on the south side soffit installation. I tried to get an early start so I can make it around the south east corner.

Just me, a square, my tin snips and a coffee.

The south side has the closet bump out. As I proceed around the closet I will have to create two inside corners. This is more intricate and takes a little more time to do.

With the soffit complete around the closet bump out I continue towards the south east corner. Thankfully, the electric service entrance LB fitting is below the line of the J channel and the soffit.

Near the end of the day I rounded the south east corner and continued up the east side until I reached the bird nest and the family of birds that took up residence under the overhang.

Clearly this is the result of some bad parenting decisions. Since I couldn’t bring myself to relocate this unlucky bunch peepers I called it quits for the day. We have to head back home tonight to take care of some chores but we’ll be back in a day or so.

The new metal roofing is scheduled for delivery on Tuesday, June 9th and the roofers are supposed to start on Wednesday the 10th. If everything goes as planned the cottage will have a new roof by the end of next week!
