Our house has been my wife's family since 1853, was built in 1806, the attic has 2 rooms built in 1950s, between is a set of stairs to go the roof . So you can see how the roof was made the wood is trees and i do see pegs in wood, i found a peg which was not used? 6" long 3/4" wide.

    Do you have any vampires that need killing?

    Looks like a square peg didn't want to go in a round hole. Must not have had that test for apprentices back then.
    I build furniture etc with pegs & curious why this isn't even close to square. Of course pegs are made slightly oversize, - but not that oversize! Maybe an unfinished peg?
    I discount the vampire idea only because it isn't long enough unless a very skinny vampire.
