In both of the gable ends of this attic was a hole torn at the peak. Exact same thing on the other side. No debris left below. No damage to the siding.

I'm thinking that maybe the gable ends were built on the ground. Then, they punched holes in the sheathing at the peaks so they could tie the strap to hoist it up.

What do you think? Any other ideas?

Nah, it was just a sheathing guy figuring on installing gable vents and later it was switched to ridge or box vents.

I concur with the Erby the hole expert! This is an example of a skilled hammer saw operator! [:-paperba

LOL. I'd hate to see the hole when he's faced with plywood sheathing! Someone needs a RotoZip for Christmas.

I think you're exactly right.

I must confess that I've done this very thing, though we used a saw and cut a neater hole.

It's ugly, but it's not a problem.
