I walked down the street yesterday evening to look at a house that is under construction. The house is a 1-story with wood trusses. It appears that a ridge vent will be used at the ridge line and I saw no indication of blocking near the ridge - in other words, the roof sheathing on each side of the ridge has a free edge (albiet only 2' long) between the trusses along the ridge line. Is that typical? I'm not a timber or house guy, but it seems to me that something more would be required there, especially in a high wind area.
