Hi folks

I'm working on a 10'x10' shed with a 4/12 gable roof. What is the ideal sized gap in the plywood at the ridge for the ridge cap vent? My target was 3" on each side, but I forgot to figure for the fascia board so I ended with a little more than 4" on each side to the ridge. Is this acceptable or do I need to nail in a small strip of plywood or take some other action?

Thanks in advance

Ok so I messed up there. I do plan to have soffit venting and gable vents. Would you recommend just cutting a 4" strip for each side and completing the roof, or should I do something else?

Way to wide a gap, now water can get in.
No need to gable vents of there's a ridge vent, in fact a gable vent will short circuit the ridge vent and make it useless.
