My desired facia width leaves a gap.

Recommended Posts

I am trying to build my gable end walls to have a very small facia by turning a 2x6 on it's flat edge.  The problem is, is that the siding will no longer meet the facia/underside of the roof.  I don't want a closed soffit.  I turned off the sub-facia but that does nothing.  I believe the width of this gap is the width of my roof structure thickness.  Kind of a difficult subject to describe.  Please see the photos.  Thank you.

Thanks David, I didn't realize that I had no profile until you mentioned it.  Do you guys have any thoughts on this subject?  I've never uploaded a whole plan to a stranger and I'd be slightly hesitant to put it out there.

Kamingk,  I had your same type of reservations when I first started posting on this forum, primarily as my plans are basic and more focused on structural information than the high-level finished plans you see by other users.  It seems everyone here is very professional in their forum interactions.  People who produce simple plans aren't going to take advanced plans and try to reproduce, people with advanced plans already know how to produce amazing data with Chief.  Very often there is data/settings/events that are so much simpler to open the plan and quickly check rather than try to explain the process.  I think you should give it a shot, the answers you receive will no doubt solve the problem.  If it is a complex solution, you may even get a video made and posted back, a truly amazing and free resource with some of the most proficient minds using ChiefArchitect.

 

EDIT: If you decide to post the plan, close out CA first, then upload.

You need a soffit for the wall to go all the way up.

 

The soffit can be 1/16". It will build under the 1/16" thick gable sub fascia.

 

You can also select the gable wall and drag its top edge up.

 

It's not clear what you want, and what the eave fascia detail will look like.

 

A section perpendicular to the roof surface will help us understand.

Brandt, check your gable fascia setting, the width and depth might be reversed for what you want.

Then don't. Make a simple demonstration plan that shows the problem.

Thanks Eric,  it's ironic to need a soffit when you don't want a soffit but it totally worked.  I think you understood what I was asking.  Thanks a million!
