Adding fascias and soffits for gable ends

When we were building a roof we don't always have the luxury of eaves all the way around. Sometimes we have a roof that has a gable end where we can see the edge of the roof rise up to the peak and back down. And this wall below will actually come up to a point. We need to add a fascia to this and I'll show a common technique used to transition gracefully between a straight fascia here and a gable fascia. I'll add in an extra end which will allow me to take this soffit up and over correctly. To begin, I'll go into Left view.

Zoom in and go into Wireframe so I can see my roof. I'll use my Line tool to draw in that profile. I'll press Ctrl and right-click and choose Line. Notice under Creation Method my Initial Type and Drag Type are set to Corner. What I'll do to begin this is start at the outside corner of the fascia, come up and over the roof, snapping cleanly on the points. Also, notice that I'm using my 2.5D Snap, so my line doesn't zigzag in Z space...
