i made this for my 6 year old grandaughter last christmas. it was large enough and tall enough that i put it on wheels for easier mobility. i looked around at putting bought shingles on it but ended up cutting them out of aspen and cut on a band saw and they ended up being rough cut on the flat surfaces giving it a great texture for shingles.
