Could you do the layout like a turret and then stagger each course a little off center to make it look as thou it is random ?

It will look fine as a random roof, but as you get to the top it will become a little harder to keep it random.

I am trying to get a pic. Liam this is the ME job. It is like a small sitting room made from a mulit sided window with a round roof on it that ends into the main roof well below the ridge line. It would be like a dormer with a half round roof. Wont it look funny all random width slate and doing this in single size. it would be like cutting a turret in half and sticking it on to a roof starting at the eves.????

Stephen,
You'll need narrower and possibly shorter slates as you get nearer to the top of the half turret.
It can be laid like a closed valley where it springs from the main roof , but the top is hard to visualize without some pictures.

What happen were this fades into the main roof, is there two valley's or is it curse in to the main roof like a eyebow. Depending on that and what the client want to see.

I would think it should be closed to hide any flashing at the peck.

Steve pictures might be good. Is this in NH or ME?

The job we are doing now is 18 x random widths. we have two bay windows that are multi panels but the roof above comes out of the main roof as a half of a turret (spelled right?) I have done several turrets. But not a half onein this style.

1.Will I have to use single widths slate.

2. As the round roof comes out of the main roof do I treat it as a closed valley or flash it as an eye brow dormer.

3. Where the peak of the half round fades into the main roof would I treat it the same as the top of a closed valley or have to do a custom flashing to bring it all together and make it water tight
