comment Dormers with ridge vents lower than main ridgeline
I think I'm good. I have added so much soffit venting, if nothing else, I am hanging my hat on the fact that I have improved the situation drastically.

comment Attic Venting of Knee Wall in Cape Cod
My attic space is two separate divided areas. I solved really bad ice dam problems by going 60/40 intake/outtake by adding additional soffit vents. I also insulated the eaves properly. This knee wall is an animal I have not dealt with before. The huge issue that is that the knee wall is across the entire front of my home and only 1/3 is accessible through a closet. I am pretty sure it is not insulated well. The knee walls are much colder than the exterior walls. The thought of busting through the drywall to fix is not uplifting. I may see if I can work on the house when the roofers come.

comment Attic Venting of Knee Wall in Cape Cod
I don't want to ignore the ventilation in the knee wall, as I get some ice dam issues as it is not. The area just gets too warm and I need to get cold air moving through it.

I use one of those automatic shower cleaner sprayers. I fill it with everyday use mist from the dollar store.

comment How do I paint art onto a wall?
I make pretty extensive cornhole boards and seal them with polycrylic; a good 4 or 5 coats. The minwax brand is the only one known not to yellow with UV rays.
