This is on a horizontal roof.

Sure Magnus, the whole project was 2 sheets of plywood and like 5-6 eight ft long 2X4s (I didn’t count, I always have a stack of 2X4s laying around). I did the layout in Auto Cadd, I first drew it in 3D then took each triangle shaped side and layed it out on the 2 sheets of plywood. I cut all the sides with 90deg cuts then came back with a jig saw and ran it down the edge to cut the miter. I used 2X4s on the back side of all the seams for structure, cutting the angles into the 2X4s on a table saw. Everything is glued and screwed then I caulked any gaps in the seams. For paint I used “Deck Restore” which can be found at Home Depot, $40 for 2 gallons and a special roller, this job only took one gallon. The whole project took me 5 days but I was interrupted a lot so I probably could have done it in a lot less time.
