Need Help With This Look

Recommended Posts

I matched the siding and windows.  How do I achieve the white trim boards near the soffit.

Problem with frieze is that it won't cut out for the windows like a wall material region will.

That is not my rendering, the homeowners sent it to me.  I think it's a photo.

As designers and builders, you usually try to avoid window trim frieze interference.....

 

From a practical standpoint, it would seem hard to accomplish this look without having the window slammed to the top to the ceiling and still trying to leave proper room for insulation.  (unless you were going to clip ceilings with furr-downs to accomplish this.)

Also...where does header go?  On top of TP?.   How does roof vent properly...ect.

 

Like I said, does not seem like a good detail for me.   Maybe 10-15 years ago when you did not have to worry about insulation out over wall plates extending to the edge of envelope.   Am I the only one seeing this?

Add the frieze board....take an elevation view...select the frieze...break it at the windows and make it a different height above the windows.
