soffit returns
Does anyone know how to frame a soffit return on a gable roof? Also, can this be done without an end gable overhang and just a soffit overhang?

This provides a better overview and pictures than I could provide.

I saw that site but it doesn't show how to frame them.

Why would you be framing a roof with no over hang?
It's going to be hard on the siding, windows and any doorways.
Got a picture of exactly what it is yor trying to do?

Yes, once again, post a picture so we can see what your seeing.
In most cases it's a simple wedge shaped piece of wood used for a return.

I don't have a camera sorry. Do you know a site online with directions? I can't find anything.

Hi mikem201,

It's interesting you say you don't have a camera. I've checked around this Board and found this post by you which includes a picture you posted in the link below:

http://boards.diynetwork.com/e...1916776/m/3643938967

But what is even more interesting is what you had to say in the link below:

http://boards.diynetwork.com/e...776/m/3643938967/p/3

I personally find such posts and language unwarranted and offensive. milem201, you sir, need help but none of us here can provide you the assistance that you need, though a good Clinical Psychologist would likely offer a good deal to help improve your mental health. I'm sure others here will surely agree.

Have a good day!

Simiply_Me,

Well said, and very kindly and gently expressed. I'm in full agreement.

And I reported that obnoxious post, and DIY did not remove it. He's a troll

Re-mdlr, I wholeheartedly agree; he's been trolling and baiting in every post, turning his comments around and asking from a slightly different perspective.

And he obviously understands the underlying issues well enough to manipulate the bases of the questions he asks.

The only way I think to get rid of him is to ignore him. BOYCOTT his posts. If he's not able to manipulate anyone, he would (logically) give up and go elsewhere to troll.

And thanks for reporting him.

Clever, cute and very appropriate. But sometimes the fisherman gets more than he bargained for and the fish bite back.
