Looks good. Not picking on your work or anything, but have you ever thought of running the siding wild at the top and then installing soffit? Pretty much the way do it here. And the last panel does not have to be cut in. Also in the gables it get J for the siding to run into . IMHO I think it looks nicer and no face nailing of the last coarse.

I'd like that. I'll recommend it on our next one.
This soffit got installed by other guys on the crew while I was tending on another reno.
I hate the last row at the top... It always looks like crap unless you've run the Hardie perfectly parallel (or close to it) with the foundation.
When you install your soffit J on the siding, are you using 1/4" crown staples? Any problems with it spalling out the siding?

When I put the J on I do it with 1" or 1 1/4" zinc screws . They go right in and through the back of the J . All my J gets screwed on , 1/4 crowns for attaching the soffit. I rarely ever use F channel either. Have never had any problems.

The notches get caulked after all the siding is installed.

If I donít use actual sill stock I preassemble the casing and then rabbet the bottom of the casing to tuck the siding up under it. Much cleaner look.
