Best way to vent quaker barn?


I'm going to purchase a vinyl dutch barn (10' x 10', PT floor + joists, 16" OC on all the 2x4's).

The roof design (looks like a curved type roof, not the triangle type) on it doesn't allow for the installation of soffits unfortunately because there is no overhang on that type of roof from what I've seen.

I am able to get any combination of gable vents, ridge vent, and/or a cuppola.

I read a post by Ed the Roofer that gable + ridge could pull water/snow into the shed...

So given the above, what is the best way to vent this style of shed?

Thanks!

This sounds like a shed building and you are probably trying to describe a Gambrel style.

Do you intend on spending a lot of time in the 10' x 10' shed?

Does it have a soffit area to install soffit vents for the Intake Ventilation?

You probably do NOT need to worry about venting it if it really is just a shed building.

-No soffit area
-Just a shed for storing tools/etc., not spending much time in it at all
-Just want enough venting so things don't get super hot or super moist, etc... so that tools don't rust and if I store a gas container in there, it doesn't blow up

So given the above, just the standard 2 gable vents they include with the shed is good enough?
