Some of these are detail orientated and might be hard to understand by the layman. I did them in the shop to only show the last 1 of roof, complete with a baffle system for blowing snow.

The first picture is of 2x3's wrapped in metal to protect them from the weather.

 

A typical panel, after the top edge has been folded and boxed. It's blurry, but you can see the screen underneath.

A view of the gap under the drip edge, and the 1-1/2" gap beside the seam. 

Here, I've added 1 snow baffle. 

 

 A rear view of the baffle.

Here, I've added a second baffle. 

Dimensions can vary. I cobbled this together with whatever was handy that day. 

Just another view. The drip-edge would be continuous along the ridge, and over the seams. See the screen under the metal? 

Just one more view. 

I've added another screen to help keep blowing snow and rain out. 

On the roof.

 

 

In this picture, the screen is in, blocks and drip edge are on. Ready for the cap metal now.
