Great room rafters exposed end in open garage??

So my rafters end in FLAT ceiling garage (Open) and when I try and heat the garage alot of of the heat goes up into the rafters above lousy old insulation sitting on paneling in the great room with vaulted ceiling. I plan to do some major work in spring a new roof,along with new insulation above great room. As I repair and replace plywood etc I was wondering the correct way this major joint should take. I am assuming the vent area from the rafters should meet up with a small vent above flat roofed garage. However the insulation in garage sits right up to plywood flat roof (no space). I guess that is where the error is? Correct me if i am wrong.
Hope I was clear enough to get a clear picture on what I said.
I could take a picture if need be.
