Is this a blocking panel?
I was reading here about adding blocking panels above the top plate to connect with the ventilation channel.
Do I already have those? See photo.
Those are at the end of each rafter bay in my unconditioned knee wall attic. There’s a pretty large gap above the blocking board, but then the top shouldn’t really matter for the ventilation channel, right?
What is the intention of this block? Is this common? Why have a screen in it if you’re going to leave a huge gap above it? Just trying to understand what the logic was.
If I insulate the rafters, would I build the air baffle to be snug to the base of this block and call it good?
