I'm residing a contempory house done originally in vertical cedar. The
gable ends, including the garage that bumps out, have no
overhang..looks like just a 1 x 8 board over the top of the siding
along the roof. Bogus design if you ask me.
I'm residing with better vertical vinyl over the wood, at least in the
front..standard horizontal the other 3 sides. Would much rather strip
first, but because of the design, would be an ordeal and expensive.
Before the siding goes on I want to build overhangs for the garage and
a door that are on gable ends and currently have no protection.
Exploring ways to do this...
- build mini half trusses that extend 12-15" over the garage and just
screw into the exterior wood every 24"
- tie them together with a facia board, then sheath with plywood.
Flash the top edge, add drip edge and shingle. Let the siders cover
over the top of the flashing, sides and underneath.
...same for the door but extend farther out.
I'm not a pro, just handy enough to get myself into trouble..seeking
