Sadly, the bamboo shingles didn't survive very well in our dry Alberta climate and kept snapping off every time I moved it. The carved teak wood trim was worse for wear and had to be removed...much of it was missing too.
The shingles have been removed, now but this is what they looked like, from a distance they look nice, not really nice up close and I added stone work using this technique shown here, recycling at it's BEST! http://www.miniland.ca/EggClass1.html. It has a LONG way to go, but I will keep you posted!
