Using 3/4 inch wood, I cut two sections to match the roof angle.
Then I cut out two pieces of plywood to form the roof sections.
The two angle pieces are clamped to the building frame.
Then the roof sections were fastened to the angle pieces with screws to hold them together while the glue dries.
A 1/8 inch square piece of wood was glued to the center to fill the peak between the two roof sections.
Here's the inside of the roof.
Once the glue has dried, the screw holes were filled and the sides of the roof edge were sanded so they are vertical to the ground.
Then strips of wood trim are glued to the edges of the roof to give them a smooth finish.
These strips of wood trim are held in place with tape while the glue dries.
The main structure of the building is now painted.
The opening for the store front is framed in and the door is glued in place.
Once the framing is dry, then it is finished out with the windows and wood trim.
Here is a side view to give a 3-dimensional view of the trim work.
