I Have A Close Quarter Problem.

I have a house we're doing where there is little space to attach product. I'll attach some pictures, and hopefully somebody can give me some much needed advice. The problem occurs because there are structural knee braces too close to a wall that needs siding/trim. There are a ton of these knee braces all over this house but unfortunately 2 places (mirror image of the pictures I will attach) where I have this issue.

I was able to trim the window out but I foresee problems coming when I need to side the space between the window and the wall... and nailing off the inside corner. I'll be installing Hardie to walls trimmed out with LP SmartTrim. It's about a 3-4 inch gap, knee brace to wall, and 1 3/4" less to the window.

Some help with ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Ask the Architect how he would do it?

Re: I Have A Close Quarter Problem.

It is kind of a dead area visually- possible to side with HardiPanel? Temp brace, side and reinstall brackets... They should of had you side that wall with before they installed those brackets... bummer!

Re: I Have A Close Quarter Problem.

I'd ask the genius that set that bracket there.

I might glue the pieces together on a table and then to a piece of coil or something and just drop it down in there. It's low visual, covered from weather, low chance of impact.
