Attic ventilation question for Joe #green

I have an area above my detached garage that I am trying to finish off into an apartment. I am looking to get some input on the best way to go about venting the attic. The problem I am having is that on one side of the building the roof has a fairly steep pitch (45 degrees), and is used as the interior wall up to the ceiling height at which point it opens up to an attic. My current plan is to use furring strips and 1/4" plywood to make 2" deep vents under the roof. I was then planning to fill in the rafters under this with R21 cotton batt insulation. I then thought I would put foam board on the inside with drywall over that. Do you think I will have a problem with this setup?
