First, cut inspection holes and look to see if there is anything inside the soffits that cannot be moved easily. We often find plumbing and electrical lines that can be hard to re-locate. If you indeed find you can remove the soffits, be sure to cut along the edge of the soffit where it meets the wall and the ceiling. This should allow you to remove the drywall on the soffit without tearing off the drywall on the wall and ceiling. Once the drywall skin is in place you can remove the framing, be very gentle since hammering too hard on this framing may disturb the area around the soffit and you will be repairing more than you had intended.
