That looks fiendishly complex. How long did it take to complete? It is most impressive!

That is really some amazing work – the details in the supports are quite intriguing the way that they interlock together! All you need to do is hunt down some nice tiles from storage somewhere to lay that roof over! It would look really amazing as a welcome sign or something for a business!
