I chose to run the corrugations parallel to each of the walls and miter the corners. The corrugated sheets were wider than the 600mm eaves and I bought some electric sheers to cut down the sheets and also cut the 45 degree angles at the corners. I was so worried that I would cut the metal the wrong way, because I had to think of the eaves lining above you rather than lying on the ground, that it cut the first angle the right way but on the wrong end of the sheet. As I was fitting the corro sheet into the slot in the metal fascia there was only one way the metal could go.
After that disaster the installation of the first sheet did not go particularly well either. I started on the low side of the eaves, thinking it would be easier, but due to the sloped roof the corro had to be pushed in towards the wall then up before being curved slightly to fit it into the slot in the fascia. The corro got stuck too low on part of the wall and when pushing it up pulled off a part if the render. Hopefully thus will be covered by the angle strip that will be put on later or I can just patch it a little.
