Help Please Soffit Help With Boxes

Hey all,

Well I have been building a 24x30 building and did all my self over the summer. I have been stuck in a hard spot now and I cant figure this out..


The shingles are on, and the drip edge.. Both done..

I have a 24x30 building with 2' overhang on the lenth of the building and 1' on the gable ends.. So I have 2' overhang on the 30' part and 1' on the 24 part that meets the ridge.

I'm stuck on the soffite parts as I have no idea how to build them corner boxes where the soffit ends and then it goes up at an angle.

Please see this picture that I made at:

Sorry it may take a few mins to load as I just sent it..

My guess what I have been told is to put the f channel all the way to the end when I build my corner boxes. then take the fascia and bend it around to the end. But from what I see that on a 2' overhang that the fascia will not cover the whole box as the angle.. So what can I put above the fascia on the corner boxes?

I will show another picture at

I'm sorry that these images are so big.. But was not sure how to narrow down the size..

If someone can walk me throught this it would be great.. I can even pay you for your time using paypal. Just let me know..

Thank you

Perhaps these illustrations will help:

Your f-channel does not need to extend past the corner of the building, since the box is going to be covered, the bottom lip of the fascia cover will cover the edges of the soffit that extend out onto the box.
