Pleasantly Surprised

Tonight I decided to work more on the 2nd story roof. This section has long been a worry of mine. The shape of Wingspread's roof is iconic, and I want to do it justice more than any other part of the building. The angled sides especially worried me, as they are at an odd angle that's not made by LEGO. My first attempt over the weekend used a complicated mesh of different size wedge plates, and there were gaps everywhere. On a whim I thought I could use staggered 45° plates. I think the effect is quite good.

I am exceedingly happy with how this turned out. I can't stop staring at it!
