Eave details

I am not sure if this would be the appropriate section for my question.

Anyways, I am working on my truss roof and am interested in achieving a certain look for the eave/overhang, similar to the picture in the link below.

Old World Romantics - Traditional - Exterior - other metro - by Jack Arnold Companies

The picture is small but when I enlarge it/zoom in, I am able to see the eaves better.

So in the opinion of the experts here, how am I able to achieve the look(or close to it)? what may be the appx width of the overhang? what about subfascia/fascia details? Any ideas on the soffit materials that can be used?

Thanks much,

Are the trusses bowed at the bottom for the enhanced gambrel flip out? I am assuming that is what you are looking for? It would have to be designed in at the truss factory. The truss manufacturer can design any type truss you want with the exact detail you are looking for. It isn't for an after-the-fact build out.

If you can find another link that doesn't require me to sign up it would help, at least help me.

Chandler,

Ideally yes, I would like that "bell" shape. But like you said that it has to be manufactured that way by the truss company so acheving that won't be possible.
I am asking more about the overhang and fascia, more specifally what size these may be. For example, is the fascia seem to be made of 2x4 or 2x6, or there may not be a fascia - and whether the overhang seems to be aroud 12" etc etc.

Bud, I will see if I am able to post the image here.
