Using rigid foam insulation in an unvented roof
Hello, I would like advice on insulating my garage. It has cinderblock walls and an unvented hip roof with no ridge or soffit. Rafters and sheathing are exposed and the outside is metal panels. I can't really alter the outside appearance of the home due to my local historic society (home built in 1842). My question is, can I glue/screw rigid foam board directly to the underside of the roof sheathing, in between rafter bays, then finish by screwing plywood or drywall directly to the foam board. Is there risk of moisture build up (between foam board and sheathing) if I do this? Can I insulate/finish the walls directly up to meet the roof, and leave the soffit closed off and empty?

Does anyone know if there is a manufacturer that makes an energy efficient, dual HVAC/ ventilation system that would satisfy both of my needs and eliminate the need for 2 duct systems?
