I should have noted: the slats were applied to the top of the rafters with brads, prior to the installation of the roof sheathing. We popped chalk lines on the sheathing to locate the rafters in order to help prevent “shiners” (nails which do not hit the rafter and can be seen from below) which would need to be removed.
