Cathedral Ceiling Venting
Hello. My house is now finished but it came to my attention that my cathedral ceiling (with no attic over) is neither spray foamed or has rigid board and is not vented with any soffit or ridge vents. We are zone 4a and the concerns is condensation as humid warm air rises and hits the sheathing. I just did air leakage diagnostics and the bedroom is incredibly leaky measuring more to outside than inside with a lot of air leaking through the allegedly sealed high hats. The finished ceiling has drywall over the batts. There are air baffles already in place but they are not continuous as pic shows. Is it too late to add soffit and ridge vents to this ceilings? Also my attic is a hot attic (also done wrong but an easier fix) so is that weird to have a vented bedroom and not vented attic? I would hate to rip out the ceiling and spray foam as all my furniture and everything is moved in. See pics of progression. Thank you!
