Gutter Board and Soffit Supports

I've started installing the soffit supports underneath the ends of the trusses. They provide a horizontal surface under which the soffits will be attached. They're braced with a 1x4 that spans across them so that they can't move from side to side. Also in the photo below, you can see the board that's attached to the ends of the truss tails. That's the gutter board; to which the eavestroughs will be attached. It's simply a 2x6 that's been ripped with a 45 degree bevel on the top to match the angle of the roof.
