Drip edge.

But, there are other things to consider (by the way, moving a house 20 miles for $28,000 is CHEAP, I've seen houses moved a few blocks and that cost $40,000, and that was 25 years ago.

I would not worry about to many things in that house, that brick chimney (assuming it is brick) is likely *not* going to survive that move intact - it will likely need rearing down and rebuilding, so might as well tear that chimney down before the move, then just rebuild it on the new site.

Drip edge to cover plywood sheathing.
You may also want to note that some insurance comp won't cover if there is exposed plywood at the ends or gutters
