Hello Community. I am a home owner in BC. We are considering removing the eaves to modernise the form of our house. I am well aware of all the issues rain on top of wall, more rain on footing, rain in open window, hotter house in summmer etc. Accepting all that my question is HOW to do it (not WHY). I don’t want to debate the why’s - just assume you had to this job there is no way out and you had make it work ie not leak.
The roof construction at present (excuse errors in my terminology). Shingles) stone chipping on bitumen), some paper membrane, ply sheath, air gap, insulation, on 8”x10” rafters spaces 8’ apart. The tounge and groove ceiling boards replace additional rafters as they are an impressive 3” thick.
Siding presently stucco. This will be removed and board and batten installed. Windows being replaced and also added these will be set back 2” from outer skin.
I’d be extremely grateful for any constructive input.
