  3. I don't but I can tell you I used my Cricut Explore Air and designed the barn on their Cricut design space. I knew I was going to use a 4'x8' piece of plywood for the barn and I had scraps of 3/4"x3 1/2"x 22" pieces of wood lying around to make the roof. I made the barn with roof on Cricut design space to fit the piece of plywood and have the roof pieces hang off over the sides. I then had the Cricut cut out large sections of the roof to make a stencil and used the paper stencils to cut my wood pieces for the roof. I layed the roof pieces on the 4x8 plywood and made sure the highest point of the roof measured 4' high (from the highest point of the roof to the bottom of the barn). I also cut out a stencil for the barn doors and the opening above the barn doors. I held the wood pieces of the roof down and used a pencil and followed the roof shape. I took the roof pieces off and followed my pencil mark on my plywood with my jigsaw into the roof shape. I painted my barn with white primer. When dry I used my barn door stencil and traced around it then cut painters tape and filled in the barn door. Then i did the same thing with the opening above the barn doors and painted the middle with the light blue color. I painted over the barn with red paint(avoiding the opening above the barn doors). When dry I removed the tape to reveal the white barn door and white frame around the opening above the barn door. I painted my roof pieces with a white paint. To attach the roof pieces I used gorilla glue and went through the back and secured it with some short screws.
