The editorial staff here at the magazine receives a lot of reader letters. Often, those letters contain a question about a story that we published, a construction detail that we have illustrated or a product that we have mentioned. Other letters contain questions that seem to be generated by simple curiosity. Such is the case with this letter from John Morris of Simpson, Pa. John Writes:
Enclosed is a newspaper clipping of a local house.
I am baffled about the details on the apexes of the roof.
Can you offer an explanation?
Well, we can’t, but we’re hoping that one of you can. Use the comment feature below to weigh in with your thoughts.
