Heck, that is perfect place for floor jacks and such!
A lot of times the home designer didn’t account for suv or larger sedan cars with the garage foot print so they can only get small compact cars in the garage. But with these braces they can at least nose the car under the porch if need be.

Interesting, our place in AZ has an oversized garage because the builders thought everyone owned a boat. I was looking at pontoon boats last year but it would not have fit while on the trailer. My wife solved that problem " easier to fish from the beach than have a boat that is too high for the door opening.

Curious about how you guys have seen corners like this finished

We have the country modern style trim in most our homes.  3/4 overhang on outside edges for the header

I just dove them into each other.

Nope, nothin exclusive at all. Just the Colorado river and Lake Mohave, with lake Havasu just down river. The area really draws the people in since it isn't too far from L.A. and Laughlin NV is just across the river.

Jared, I have a venting problem in my upstairs main room. It has a versalam (16x6) ridge and 2x10 on 16c. I am going to insulate this with roxul 30 which leaves a 3in space up top I need to vent.

I was thinking about leaving a little space next to the beam so when I sheetrock I can pull the air out the bottom with a small fan pulling the air down and over/out.

Other idea is to drill a hole in each rafter near the top to pull the air across still using a fan to move the air.

So any ideas would be great!!

so, JR, your roxul wont be touching the radiant barrier?, have you thought about a ridge vent, where you cut away the plywood along each side of the ridge beam?  Then you just need soffit venting at the lower eaves to get the air moving up along the underside of the plywood and out the ridge?

Just a thought

Nope, can't do that with this structure. The OSB is nailed to the beam in shear as part of the structure. A few holes are fine noted with 2 vents I have up there now for the open structure.

I think my only real option is a forced vent system either pushing the air down next to the beam or drilling a hole in the 2x10 on each rafter. However as seen by the pic I already have a notch on the bottom and
plan on leaving a gap there since the beam drops about 2 inches below the rafter. It would have to have a fan to work correct pulling the air out of the 2 roof vents now.

Would it just be easier and possibly cheaper in the long run to spray foam that area?

JR,
Sorry for the late response. I agree with the foam as long as it can be used with the existing insulation and venting. But, it is not always easy to have a home with different insulation types and venting/nonventing methods. This is further compounded when you try to calculate the ac loads and distribution to keep every room the same temperature when some rooms are better insulated than others.
I am not a fan of powered ventilation. It works well at moving air but requires power to run the fan. I have seen so many fans burned out here in Texas due to running all the time that i fear they could be a fire hazard and are counter productive to an energy efficient home. When we must use such a vent i try to use the solar powered type.
I have had a similar situation that you have. Air will travel through the structure through the notches and holes naturally found in framing. What i have done when a cut can not be made along the entire ridge is to drill holes. These holes should not be so large as to weaken the structure. These holes allow the connection of osb to ridge to be maintained. The air that gets heated will naturally rise up and pull in fresh air below. Make sure you have a way for fresh air to enter at a lower point than the ridge holes. This will create a draw that will circulate air through the structure. This principle is reliable and never needs maintenance as long as the vents are clear. When i drilled these holes through the osb roof deck i did a 1” hole and had six or so holes between every 16” OC truss. Holes on both sides of the ridge. I did not have to drill holes through the trusses though. You may want to drill cross holes through your rafters but keep them small and from weakening the rafter. I am not sure how to figure how many holes you would need and of what size.
If holes and a continuous ridge vent is not possible you may want to consider an air hawk. They are the round turtle looking vents found on most homes around here. They mount just below the ridge so the connection you have can be maintained. The down side to them in your situation is that they will not ventilate every rafter chamber as well as a continuous vent so you would have to rely on the side to side travel of air through the framing and rafter notches. Small holes could be drilled through the rafters if your local code will allow.

I think in the long run keeping the roof as is will be the best route and using a solar fan to pull air out is an option I thought of.

There will be quite a bit of space for the air to be pulled through, just have to get it out somewhere.

Sprayfoam for an r30 would be pricey and I still need to address the venting.

Not sure, the ridge beam is 6in wide.  Small holes may work but I would need a 16in+ cap to cover both sides.

So the beam is 6 inch wide, the holes are 1 inch diameter x 2 so 8 inch total or a tad more. Ridge vent is 13.75 wide (quick google of Lowe’s & HD) am I missing something?

If the hole diameter is concern go smaller & more of them. Thinking you can figure out how many holes you actually need pretty easy. Where I live there is code for venting & calculating the amount of holes for surface area is easy too.

I am leaning towards the holes, say 3 per section. Issue is still the vent material above it as it is designed for cutting a 4in or so slot in the ridge. Then they seal outside that with the cap over that.

So lets say 3-4 holes in each section. Puts the width to seal around 10 inches to be safe. That does not to sound crazy but most venting is made for that narrow center ridge. I was thinking of mesh that I can use wider and found something called smartvent; https://dciproducts.com/smartvent-off-peak-firewall/

So I have some options but need to look more.

JR, why couldn't you make your own? Essentially build up that ridge (lets say make it 4" taller or whatever) as long as you have enough overhang so water can't get back up inside. Use a fine mesh for air to flow out and cover it with shingles and then cap it like a normal ridge vent. Use vinyl or alum flashing and facia where the mesh isn't on the sides?
