I'm probably too late but don't notch the rafters! I'm not talking about the birdmouths, I mean those notches to receive the horizontal strapping. They substantially weaken the rafters and if done on a house roof would invite a total rejection by the Bldg. Inspector.
The strapping gets nailed/screwed onto the top edge and the resulting gaps on the ends are covered by the fascia or bargeboards applied to the outside rafters.
