The rafter trim is glued on (although you cannot see it in this photo) and clamped to dry in preparation for the roof. Smartly, I also traced them onto cardboard to use as patterns for the living roof sides :)
With the addition of the back opening trim, an eighth-inch gap is created along the roof support, so I cut a piece of basswood to fit and glued that in place.
I painted it to match the trim and walls. I like how it frames the opening, and since the back is like the fourth wall in theater, a subtle window is created, inviting us to look in. In a non-creepy way.
The roof now aligns with the trim and roof support all the way across the back. I used the temporary brace provided with the kit, and glued and nailed the roof on.
And here’s a look in. Some gaps to fill and paint, and with the addition of the painted bins I notice that the lower shelf on the right is not level?! I’ll have to fix that when I feel like breaking something intentionally.
