actually mike yoakum did these in a resin casting 4 the four sides and it came with wood for the slats. This was in o scale. Pretty slick I used them a lot for scratch building.
using a couple of them and chopping off the top and bottom frames, you can stretch out the length for the top of the roof cupola type vent.
Actually I am kind of disappointed that bar mills would produce the walls with a board split in half for the peaked area where it joins the lower area. A little bit more care would have produced a wall without the panel split. That is unless this split is meant to be covered with another board over top ? otherwise thumbs down to bar mills kits.

That's a bit harsh Mike.
Personally I give kudos to Bar Mills for superior kits at an affordable price.
Sure there are imperfections here and there. An advanced modeler can handle those areas with ease.
Some of these kits are not for first timers but Bar Mills gives you plenty bang for the buck!!!
Sorry, but in my opinion, it only takes a bit of planning and care by the operator setting the wood into the laser cutter to make sure you do not end up with BUTT JOINTS in the middle of a wall. Sheets of materials come 6 " wide and that whole peaked wall could easily have been lasered out of one sheet 6" high.
That's the difference between somebody just pushing out kits and somebody who cares about the product they are selling. I M H O .
As one who has built 388 HO structures , kits and stratch built and 127 O scale structures , I think I know of what I speak ?
To hide that butt joint you would have to place a sign end to end over it or cover it with another board right on top.
