The outside finish consists of facier, plancier, frieze, corner, base boards and moulds. The facier board is the finish around the outer edge of the roof. (Fig. 45.) The plancier board is the finish from the facier to the building. The frieze is the finish on the wall under the plancier and laps over the siding. The corner boards are the finish around the corners. The base board extends around the bottom of the building, with a drip cap placed on the top edge on which to start the siding. The crown mould extends around the outside of facier. The bed mould is placed in the angle of the frieze and plancier.

Line up and saw the heels of the rafters for the facier board and let the facier extend above the rafters enough to receive the sheeting, and extend 3/8" below the plancier. Nail a block under the sheeting of the gable to lower the plancier for a 3/8" margin on the facier for rake or box cornice. (Fig. 45.)

A box cornice returns square from the facier to the building, the plancier is supported with a lookout, nailed to the rafter and back to the wall. (Fig. 45b.)

Rabbit the frieze board or furrow it out to lap on the siding. Put a bed mould in the angle of the plancier and frieze. The style in fig. 45b is called a box cornice.

There are different styles of cornice, but we will not go into details of all the styles, but will only refer to some of them. Some ceil the plancier under the rafter and break square around the corner for the gable plancier. This style is called "Rake Cornice." Some ceil on top of the rafters with 13/16" ceiling instead of sheathing for the finish, allowing the rafters to be exposed. At the gable let the ceiling or sheeting extend from the rafter to the facier, breaking joints on the first and second rafters. Place the corner and frieze boards on the sheathing when lap siding is used. Where rustic siding is used place the corners and frieze boards over the rustic. Where a base board and drip cap is used, place them on before the corner boards and siding.

Paper all outside walls before siding, and place strips of paper under the finish that will extend for a lap of the wall paper.
