We fitted three large top opening Velux windows in the roof and one normal window in the gable which would also serves as a fire escape. Note also the air vents on the ridge tiles, these prevent moisture building up and wet rot setting in, and the soffit boards are also vented. Note there must be a 50mm ventilation gap between insulation and roof tiles.
