Question vaulted ceiling

We are building our own house, we hired out the framing. My question is...In the attic above the vaulted ceiling, the boards that were used on the exterior roof (that has already been roofed) also runs down into the attic portion of the interior attic, the house has ridge vents, thus making it impossible for the hot air to get to that portion of the venting system. I'm concerned that if the hot air gets trapped there it will eventually lead to condensation and rotting problems later on. Is there any way to cut the inside boards to allow for the hot air to continue up to the ridge vent? I hope this isn't too confusing. Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to give me.

Cant you get at it with a power saw?? Not sure what you have there. This is why we use a scissor truss all the time for a vaulted ceiling.

Thank you for your comment. I called another carpenter here in this area and he came and looked at it. He said it shouldn't have been done that way, but it shouldn't be a problem, the heat should still escape on up to the ridge vent over the middle section of the house. Again Thankyou for answering my post.
