I have a pic of the front, the back (with yellow writing on it), and one side (with the drilled holes. The opposite side is identical.

I am wanting to see the inside of that wall so I can see the framing. Different sheds are built...well...differently.

The framing matters since suggestions can vary based on what is there to hook onto.

I can't see those holes, clearer pics inside and out of eave area would be great.
No holes yet. Just showing where they are going.

Looks like the 8' wall isn't load bearing and does not have much framing in that upper area.

I would look into enlarging the little louvered vent area and adding an awning above to keep rain out as well as opening up that part under the roof overhangs both on the front and back walls.
Ok that sounds do-able. Thank you!

As suggested above .... this is how I worked the back of my shed for more ventilation. Of course the soffit board was replaced and the whole area covered in 1/2 HC with screws and washers. Works good for me.

Edited : Correction - the soffit board was not replaced, it was left open and covered in HC. The Fascia Board was replaced along the edge. I think that's what its called.

Thank you! I showed my father in law this thread, & he said he can put in airflow under the roofline & more circle holes, so I should be good! Appreciate the ideas!
