Looks beautiful! Can you recommend any resources for detailing a tongue & groove plank soffit? I am looking to do a large cantilevered soffit that actually runs visually into the interior as well.

I dont know any specific resource I would use since the best detailing depends on many different factors. Your builder or architect should be able to advise, but its important to make sure that the wood inside and out reamains stable and that the inside and out appear unified and fade and weather in unison.
