I had a homeowner approach me last night and asked me if I would box in their eaves. They want to basically soffit them back to the house, with stucco. I've done this before with siding or plywood that would be painted but never to support the weight of stucco.
The way I see it a fair amount of stucco would need to be broken to get a ledger board attached to the studs and blocked between this and the fascia, then lathed and stuccoed.
Any one have any pointers.
