In the larger scale "Senior Size", roofs are made of slats which fit together by tongue and groove method and include a triangular cross section ridge piece. The gables are built up from special logs which get progressively shorter and have angled ends. Roof slats are held on by the lower of these gable logs projecting out and having a notch in the top surface.
The small scale sets have triangular gable pieces and hold the slats on with S shaped metal clips which fit over the top log of the wall and cup the lower slat. These slats do not have the tongue and groove detail nor is there an ridge piece.
Logs are stained brown, roof parts green, gable boards yellow and chimneys red.
