Ramp-Roof

Marc Nelson Jr. has created a medieval house, using two skateboard ramp pieces for the roof.





Another neat idea is this window made of a wheel between two arches.

Right after I took those pictures, I realized that I forgot to put a chimney on! I used the holes in the sides of the skate ramp to stick one on upside-down.

B&W half-timber topped with blue skate ramps would look sharp.

Cool, but not entirely new ;-)

These pictures were taken when these ramps first came out.

Yes, I know; it's not a new concept. In fact, the featured creation isn't even that new. However, UBT isn't necessarily about highlighting recent techniques, it's about highlighting good ones. So I guess it's all right. :)
