German term or phrase: trocken verlegter First / Trockenfirst
I need help with the following sentences (description of a stable roof): "Der First ist trocken verlegt. Zwischen den Firstpfannen und den Dachpfannen sind große Spalten. Die verbrauchte Luft kann gut durch die Ritzen zwischen den Pfannen und dem Trockenfirst nach außen entweichen." Thank you in advance!

With flat roofs, there is a "loose-laid" system, so I think "dry-laid" would be OK.
