Some roofs come with a 20 year guarantee, while your better roofs are said to last 30 or 40 years. Then there is this one, guaranteed to last 30 days, and it even had trouble meeting that. This is the roof of the cupola from the town hall set. Now that the sets are being dismantled, I’ve been able to get a closer look at some of the fakery and I’m even more impressed with what they pulled off. The “shingles” are actually carved styrofoam, which have been painted to appear as though they have been covered with moss. We’re hoping to collect some of the props from town hall to use in our house and as garden follies. We were also hoping to be able to use the siding for our garage but it is all made of pine so it can’t really be used outdoors.
