The Gypsy Design

As I am slowly restoring the wood components, I am drawing up some of the Gypsy themed details of this restoration. Some of the drawings I already posted. I'm currently figuring out the roof and door overhang.

Looks like a cool take on a restoration. I like the header over the couch. How were you going to give the roof the gypsy look in the drawing? Over lay it in a wood or fiberglass, or is this just a fascia piece on the back and front?

Looks real sharp Jay, Reminds me of my little red gypsy vardo I built. I like it alot. So yeah are you gonna do the exterior roof mod in fiberglass or wood?

I'm thinking wood with a coat of fiberglass/resin. Have any pictures of your project?

Check my albums, I have a few pictures of it. Try finding some reclaimed wood from like an old barn or something... this way it has that worn, distessed look to it... would add alot of character. Coating it in epoxy would definatlymake it last!

I like! I bought silver curtains to section off the bed in mine but never got to it.
