Tiling the easy way

Tiled Shanty Roof

Now this is clever. The roof tiles come as laser cut strips of thick paper. To finish the roof, all I had to do was release them and stick them in place. The strips had to be cut to length and you need to be careful to line things up properly but other than that it couldn’t be easier.

I’ve cut strips of tiles similar to this by hand. It’s a lot nice to have the hard work done for you. I wonder if there would be a market for laser cuts tiles in other scales. They might even be available already, just not in the UK.
