Take the roofing battens flush to the outside of the wall.

Fix your slates on also flush to the outside wall.

You will then be left with a 2-3 gap with the sides of the roofing battens visible

When you have finished your slating cut a strip of upvc or timber trim and fix this sideways into the ends of these battens to close the gap and make it look pretty.
