Church Construct #3:

So, one part of the church wall is done, the round room at the back, so I’ve glued the bottom wall to the floor so I could start building the roof section for it :)

Tested out my idea of how to do the round roof with a slice of paper first. The original plan was to make a U-shape that fit the rounded wall but I found it easier to just use a straight piece of paper and then cut shreds in it as I bent it along the wall.

I then cut a piece of cardboard the same width the roof needed to be, and cut shreds almost all the way through it. I left just about 5mm at the edge to hold it together.

I folded every piece slightly at the bottom, over the next piece to the left, so the roof would be easier to bend :)

Held in place with needles as I tested the fit.

Used a piece of foam to hold the upper round wall the right shape as I glued the roof to it.

Just messed some glue at the top, paper strips to keep it together.

The inside of the roof.

Did the same for the top roof, though I had to cut some of the cardboard pieces out where the folds got too thick around the bend.

I only glued the roof parts to the upper wall, as I wanted this whole section to be removable for easier access to the bottom floor. Theres not gonna be an upper level here, just a high ceiling as I plan on adding a quite tall statue in the middle of the round room.

The full roof! Both lower and upper. Looks kinda like crap right now but Im gonna fix that up later!
