Architects designed a very cool "over-roof" with 2x's to create overhangs on this house. Roof has continuous ventilation under the metal from eave to ridge.
Rainscreen gap created by Cor-A-Plast battens with a folded over insect screen at the bottom. Ready for siding.
3/8" gap creates a nice drainage space behind this wood siding. I don't install siding without a rainscreen anymore.
