Been working on this for a while now and can't seem to get what I want. Attached is an image of the roof soffit/eave that I'm trying to get. I'm trying to create the soffit, but also fills in the little triangle left between the roof slope, the wall and a rectangular soffit. I have tried using a small wall with edited profile, but then all the linework shows and I tired to use the linework tool to adjust. However, when I did this all sorts of weirdness hapened. I tried to create a mass, which sort of worked but when I tried to convert the mass to walls the shape got all out of whack. I tried to create a similar inplace family, but ran into issues with linework again, in which some lines I would make invisible, but then another would take its place or the enitre line would go invisible but I only need the little triangle remainder to not show.

At any rate, what is the common (if there is one) method to creating this?

We use the in place family method of extruding a triangle along the length of the soffit. I've tried using the built-in soffit feature but found it quicker the other way. Keep in mind that if you look closely at a boxed cornice whether it's wrapped in aluminum or cedar, there will be a seam between the slope of the fascia and the triangular closure. The attached picture is showing the 6" corner board and a 5/4 x 8" frieze board and the cornice and fascia are wrapped in aluminum coil stock.
