With the plywood on the soffit, you've got no air intake for the roof venting. I'd recommend the vented aluminum soffit. It's harder to install, of course, but it allows for the airflow to help keep the house cooler and eliminate moisture in the attic.

Also, on the wood fence in the bottom of the photo, that yellow hose (extension cord?) is looping around a nice 'fox face' in the wood grain. :clap:
I'll be adding vents as I go . Cape with two bedrooms upstairs so no attic . Has powered gable vents for better air circulation . Air space is about 22 " from ceiling to peak .

Wonderfull day at "work". Started doing the shocks last fall on my Dodge . Two rears no problem left front piece of cake. The right front I couldn't get out lower shock bolt just spun. Had to cut the shock drop the left side , remove the spring all to get at this little mf'er. 20 cent piece caused a half days work so far. Still need to fix the cage nut and put it back together . Needed the oxy acetylene torch on every nut. Hate NY cars . Worked on my 72 Washington state pickup with a wrench and ratchet. Little PB Blaster and that's it 20200605_155559.jpg 20200605_155603.jpg 20200605_164651.jpg 20200605_164732.jpg

Nothing like photos of OSHA violations just in case you need them at some point.

Not a fun day. Spent the whole day under here doing plumbing and wiring for a bathroom. Had to cut into a cast iron pipe, and drill through brick. But I'm almost done with the underside work.

But get a look at that flooring - fully 1 inch thick, not a knot or a wave anywhere on this 120 year old flooring. Wow!
