Roof Mayhem 1
Because of the large foot print of the house I knew the area of the roof was going to be very big. It could be either very tall with very few gables spreading out over long reaches or it could be broken up into smaller gable sections which is the way I’ve gone, adding three gabled areas, one not quite flat or sloping area and two small, flat leaded areas. Because I knew it would result in an awful lot of all red colour spreading out for ever, quite early on I went for an area to be under construction or improvement by the little people who inhabit the 1:12 world so that there would be a storyline going on up there on the roof too.
Eventually the back story for the building scene settled on storm damage in the back attic block.

The second slope
As you can see it’s the back one of the four attic sections that’s in poor nick (not very likely you think?) but there will be a tremendous amount of clearing up to do for the workers. Not sure how many labourers we’re going to need, possibly three up on the roof itself, possibly more. Still thinking about that.
Meanwhile there’s the bit of tiling still to do on the second side of the ruin and all of the ridge of the house, both broken and whole plus all the debris with possibly bits of tree etc to be strewn around and about. Fun, fun, fun 🙂
