I have a small house with a 2' overhang all the way around. I know usually more is better, but on this tiny little house it doesn't look so good especially on the gable ends of the roof. The soffits are boxed in which also is very ugly. The roof is new and so is the house, only about a year old. So I want to know if there is a way to cut back the overhang to about 16" or maybe even a little more and not have to re-roof, and if so how. I would like to go to angled soffits rather than the flat box soffits for a totally different look than what I have now. Maintaining the shingle overhang seems like it would be the hardest part.
