More soffit work! I really wanted to get the soffit completely finished this weekend but time was not on my side. I would say I got 2/3rds finished but you will get the general idea.
I thought I was done with the insulation.
I needed to insulate the soffits per bpape. Hopefully this will be the last of the insulation.
I started out painting the white light trims black. They pop apart easily enough.
Here they are side by side.
I'm making vinyl wrapped trim to go around the light fixtures. Here is the MDF panel before it's wrapped.
Here are the vinyl wrapped light trims installed. Even with the lights on for hours they don't get very warm at all.
Next I started making frames for the fabric panels on the underside of the soffits. The hole is to clear the nut that holds the light panels in place.
Next is to cut the GoM (Anchorage Onyx) for the frame. I made the frame out of a solid piece of MDF. The scrap from the center will be used to make a fabric frame for a column and the center scrap from that will be used to make a fabric frame for a section over an arch.
Lots of staples. I have already used almost 10000 staples. I also stapled the velcro that will hold the panel up just to be safe.
And the finished panel. This particular panel has a small section that is curved where it butts up to one of the curved corners of the soffit.
Here is a shot with a few of the panels in.
More panels installed.
This is my personal favorite shot.
Here you can see the side of the soffit also. There will be blue LED rope lighting in the soffit in the end.
