As I approach the roof ridge, I frame in, close up and cover the old vent opening with building wrap. In the photo below the soffit installation proceeds up the northern gable rake. The J Channel has been installed on the southern gable rake.

With the soffit done on the southern gable rake, the installation rounds the corner and continues on the south side of the cottage. This is existing overhang that for years, has been exposed with no soffit.

South Side Soffit

The soffit on two sides are is now complete. The south side will take a little longer as I have to work around the rhododendrons you see above. This will be tomorrows goal.
