Installing Soffit on Sunday

The spacklers came over to the house yesterday and sanded for three hours.

Today, John decided to install the soffit above the master bedroom balcony.

Once again, the deadman came in handy. I stood on the balcony while John lifted the fiber cement soffit board up the ladder.

I supported one end of the board with the deadman until he shot a few nails in with the nail gun.

I can’t wait to see the remaining 4′ siding boards installed above the French doors.

John nailed the soffit on the right side first.

We’ll do the left side next.

Soon it will be closed up!

And later in the day, the soffit on the left was nailed.

  1. So nice. We are renovating our bath in our little old house-turned 60 yrs old this year. Our contractor spackled yesterday and fixed it so I could take a bath in the tub…weird with no tile and just the wallboard. No toilet or sink yet either so bathing in the rough.

    When do you get to move in?

  2. I’ve spent the last day and a half catching up on your blog (I had back surgery on Friday, so I’ve got a bit of time on my hands!) I had no idea it had been such a long time since I read a post- It seems I haven’t checked in with you since March/April! Loving all the progress you’ve made.

    I do have a question though -do you still have an instagram? All of the links to your insta are broken…
