Reminds me of my deck stairs. I made them 8' wide instead of the original 3' wide. Turns out there's a 3/4" difference in deck height at an 8' wide range, so I ripped the stringers 1 by 1 to taper them. I can totally see the wedge in the top step, guessing you can too with the fascia.Tackled the gutter and trim today. Original facia was 2-by, new Azek 3/4". Got it ripped out, put blocks between the truss tails , ran a string with a level, only to find the roof 3" out of a whack. So, we held the new facia to the string line, and i ripped a 12' wedge to fill the gap. The whole thing creates a crazy optional illusion with the top filler and the scope of the gutter. Now, i need to find 24" soffit and get some track. The Might-as-Well will be the LED soffit lights on a photocell. Pimpin' ain't easy.

You wouldnt believe how many times I've had to explain this to contractors and H/O. Alot of people would rather it look "right" instead of it actually working. Almost every double door i run into has dropped quite a bit above it. It looks good and should last you quite a while.What's funny is that, by running the string line, I found out why the gutter never worked right: it was level, if not slightly uphill. No wonder it always overflowed! Duh!
Awesome solution. I have shot bugs out of the air with carb cleaner and napalmed hordes of ants with that and a lighter.Yesterday kicked my pansy @$$, and today was a little slow going. I had some wood eating bugs years ago and had eradicated them with Brakleen, but the damage was already done.
Bottom plate lifts make it a pia to run stuff like Jacks and the like under the car when trying to pull transmissions.Had an automotive lift sales rep stop by the house today, and while his company couldn't sell us their product he suggested that for our needs this would be more appropriate:
The Atlas Apex 9BP is an ALI CERTIFIED base-plate two-post lift designed for low ceiling garages. The total column height is 111 1/8″ (9′ 3 1/8″).www.atlasautoequipment.ca
Any feed back would be appreciated. Interestingly Costco carries this brand (not this specific model).
It was also really fun talking shop and cars with someone.
