I would like to improve the air circulation in the attic of my 1902 folk Victorian, but the way it is framed is making things difficult. I hope you can help.
Basically, while my house does have soffit vents, there doesn't appear to be any easy way to get soffit baffles into place. As the attached pic illustrates, the rafters of my roof terminate on a beam that blocks access to the soffit. As you can see in the pic, there's a small, angled gap between the beam where the rafters end and the top of the wall plate (I think I got that terminology right...) As a result, there doesn't seem to be any way to both insulate the top of the wall plate and still keep the soffit vents clear. Any suggestions on how I might approach this? Thanks!
