Insulation and Ventilation for Low-Slope Hip Roof
The roof is a low slope hip and wondering how i should address attic insulation and ventilation?
I have a small weekend cabin in Oklahoma thats is only 250 sf,im going to put wool insulation in 2×4 walls and use zip r with the one inch foam mainly because of how it was built,hard to explain but that will put my exterior wall plum with the 2×12 header.Lp lap siding and new anderson 100 windows,currently had storm windows only and no sheathing,just the masonite siding.Plan on a mini split and wood stove.
I dont have alot of room above the ceeling which is going to be 1×8 shiplap boards on top of ceeling joist.The reason for that is the ceeling below would be 7ft3.It is not perfect and i would be better of starting from scratch but grandpa built it along time ago for a fishing cabin so we decided to work with what we got.
