Okay, So ridge vent, soffit venting and baffles it is. I see no way of heating the garage all winter without some kind of insulated ceiling. It would cost a fortune otherwise. My goal is to create a nice clean year round space.
I'm getting what you are all saying and I'm glad I asked. The roof must be vented.
This is a picture when I had just finished the process of enclosing the car port protion of the structure. As you can see, it is a hip roof with only 6'-7' ridge along the top. But I think I'm understanding that all cavities have to have air access to the ridge vent. Looks like I'll have to drill quite a few holes.
Thanks all for the help!! As for the possible mice? I'll just have to stay on top of it I guess.
