« Part 11: Getting Back To It. Part 12 of A Small Woodworking Shop Expansion series Part 13: Finally Weather Is Breaking »

Weather was good today. Took advantage of that to start the soffits.
Also put up some xps GreenGuard siding underlayment. Still have one side and the
front gable to do. Weather is going to turn again and its suppose to rain tomorrow.

If its not too bad I will try to finish up the underlayment. And also try to get the soffits
completed on one side at least.

The only other time I did soffits I just used ply. This time I decided to
give the shed a cleaner and more professional look by buying
vinyl soffit panels, j-channel, and aluminum 6” facisa trim.

I watched a good tutorial on youtube on installing soffits and facsia boards but
it still took a little time for me to get the J-channel positioned right and
get the over-all hang of it.

Also the drip-edge didn’t have enough of a lip to catch the upper indent of the
fasicia and still have room to wedge the soffit panels into the bottom of the

So this meant another run to HD to pick up wider drip-edge.

A little frustrated I didn’t get as early of a start as I would of liked. But
turned on the lights and worked on it till after 10 pm tonight.

Tomorrow weather permitting I should be able to fly through the soffits.

Can’t wait to get those done. Its about the only keeping me from putting
insulation in.

Still have some trim work and a little underlayment around the gable
end .
