Re: 4 Foot Soffit For Basement

two things amaze me about "remodelers" like this,
1) getting work and having no idea how to do it and 2) getting work and having no idea how to do it!
How the hell do you get jobs that you have no idea on how to do them? Are the homeowners that blind?

I've done it before similar to the first way you mentioned only difference is I used 20 ga. Passed inspection and was plenty rugged. Mine was just over 4' wide and tied one side back into the beam.
