Two new meshes to adorn your roofs.
Beams in two size, big and small.
cost: 18§
Doubleface (you can texturize front and back part differently)

Beams are in decorative - near sculpures.
Build your walls and place the roofbeams-object above. Then build the roof and delete the roof-walls. Lower till it fits perfectly.

[To fit perfectly the roof, place roofbeams in the middle of a square, then build the roof not exactly at its edges but half-square far]
[my english is scandalous, but it's easier doing than explain it]

To have a mansard/attic, place more than one roofbeams in row, and leave the back-roof wall integral.

Use the cheat
moveobjects on
if you don't want floors under the roofbeams.

Ivy's are by lemoncandy (beautiful mesh!), you can find them here
