This Shouldn't Take Long.... Maybe...

I was out all morning... I'm back... I'm working as fast as I can.

So far, the roof of the library is coming along just as I imagined it.
I had the advantage of having the piece of illustration board that I cut the dome edge from.  Thus I already had the curve for the corner cut.

I laid the piece of illustration board in place and from beneath, I drew a pencil line a bit outside of the edge of the roof.

Then I took the width of my metal ruler and drew lines for the cut out area.

The strips for the side were about a half inch wide.  I didn't measure.  It will, after all, be covered with irregular stone pieces.

I will have to find a big enough piece of window plastic to fit the hole.

Then I will start covering the roof with stonework. 

I made it so that the roof easily slips off of the top.  That way there will be easy access to the inside.

OK.  Back to the stonework now...

See you tomorrow.

That blue trim really makes it pop. Just kidding ;) Looking forward to seeing it all come together.
