Before you read this, the credits: I came up with this puzzle entirely by myself, and the photo is mine.
I just bought a house last winter, and I was all ready to cozy up next to a warm fire in the fireplace, when that I noticed that, even though the house had fireplaces, the roof had no chimney!
Climbing up into the attic to take a look, I discovered that someone had built the roof beams over top of what remained of the tip of the chimney. So much for those romantic fireside evenings I was dreaming of.
That wasn't the end of it, though. One day soon after, I found this message attached to the bottom of the mailbox:
19:↓ through →
My curiosity overcame my disappointment, so I decided to investigate into this; what I want to know is just who put the roof beams over top of the chimney? Specifically, since this is the first house I've owned, I want to know just their first name.
As I continued my investigation, I realized that the chimney wasn't the only odd thing about the construction of the roof...
Take a close look at the top left quadrant of the image, and you'll see what I mean.
The code is sharp... a well-known code.
