small attic ventilation


I have A small attic space 144sq ft floor space and about 1 1/2 ft from floor to roof peak w/ roof insulation and no roof overhang , in my cabin in the woods that I use from April thru November. Should I have ventilation? If so, is there A homemade remedy? As I don't want to cut into the roof and gable vents only come as small as 12"x12" in which I don't have enough room to install cause of roof pitch.

small attic ventilation


Hi,

How much sun hits the cabin? How old is the cabin?

I would not worry to much about it.
