Not a Howe.

Whats with the wacky portals and the wainscoting?

Never mind retarding the airflow that dries minor leaks in the through the cladding before it becomes something more...

How do they clean the sponge like stuff of life? The fallen birds nests and mouse houses from the bottom chords and out of the crotches of the trusswork if they are not viewable and inspect-able.

Un-seen is overlooked.
