Are 16" o.c. eave chutes (a.k.a. baffles, Proper Vents) still made?
I'll be installing chutes, followed by 2-part foam at the perimeter. I'd rather get full-width chutes between the rafters rather than breaking the perforated 24" o.c. ones in half.
We bought a 1938 single story home. I plan on documenting the energy retrofits. (Maybe even create a blog?) We've already had a "Home Performance with ENERGY STAR" inspection done. First project is to remedy the ice damming. Would using layers of Thermax at the edge, then foaming that into place get a higher R-value above the top plate than only foam?

Other Questions in Energy efficiency and durability
I have a crawl space with cold joints that are inadequately sealed and ooze water. How can I seal them?
Does anybody know of a window manufacturer who makes/sells double hung windows that are very energy efficient?
