Adding a soffit overhang to gables of an attached 4-season room
I’m currently having the roof of my attached 4-season room replaced. The roof leaked in heavy rain and there was a measly 1″ of XPS on the inside of the roof. The new roof will have 6″ of polyiso on top of the timber frame rafters.
In order to protect the exterior wood (trim, windows, etc.) on both sides (“gables”) of the room, I’d like to have a soffit added. The issue is that the soffit would end up extending beyond the corner boards of the house proper. I’m not sure that having the top of the soffit hanging in mid air wold look good. Looking for a compromise that protects the porch but also doesn’t look like it was created by Escher.
