    does the amount of overhang on a roof affect ventilation? I suppose it would affect how large my soffets will be, but will this affect ventilation? I have about 5 inches from the wall to the edge of my rafters

    The coop I'm in the middle of building (https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/615721/encouragement-along-the-way) is right at the moment that I could make changes, but anything larger and I will need more than a single 4x8 sheet ;)

    Not unless you are venting through the soffitt.
