Re: Metal roofing, how to join hips?
Jack, I agree on the gap. I have plans for sealing that up. I don't want continuous ridge vent anyway; this is for an outbuilding that will have a rooftop ventilator.
My main concern was the three-way joint of the two hip caps and the ridge cap. Of course I want to do things properly, even though it IS for a chicken house. There's no point in doing it wrong if there's a right way to do it. The chickens might not care about how it looks, but I suspect they WILL care if their heads get wet.

I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
