I'll let you decide for yourself; Attic Ventilation 101 | IIBEC

The roof is flat, with the minimum allowable slope. Very typical for the area and time when it was built. The front half of the house has exposed beams and T&G roof deck, and the back of the house has drywall ceiling. So, the attic space is very shallow, with a few vents on the back of the house. As far as I can tell, there is no inlet, just those vents. No vents on the sides, and obviously, none on the front.

Thanks, I hadn't thought about the foundation vents. Have those too. Looks like there's a trip to city hall to find out about all this.

My brother is building in Salinas right now and the code for building in an area subject to earthquakes and wildfires is pretty strict.Thanks, I hadn't thought about the foundation vents. Have those too. Looks like there's a trip to city hall to find out about all this.
