Hello, thank you for the responses. Wife and camera are on vacation so I looked online for something similar to my situation. If you look at the attached photo you will see that on the two walls that face you (two gables) there are no rafters extending out from inside the house to the outside. In other words there is no overhang rafter extending out beyond the building line and creating an overhang that the facia can be nailed to. Some might say there are no outriggers. On the same photo if you look on the left side you will see that there are 3 rafters that extend beyond the building line and if someone wanted to they could cut a piece of fascia and nail it to these 3 extended rafters. This is similar to my situation. Where my roof line is hip (horizontal) I have rafters overhanging past the building line and my fascia is nailed to that. Where my house roof is gable I only have one main beam exending past the building line at the top (apex). If this doesnt clear it up I can draw a picture or wait til the wife gets back. Here in southern Cal with no camera and no hot meals, thanks again, Joe
