As promised, here are some sketches and photos attempting to illustrate how the living roof was put together for the Cob Playhouse I posted last week: https://www.instructables.com/id/Naturally-Cool-Cob-Playhouse/
I also posted some sketches for the structure of the playhouse here: https://www.instructables.com/id/The-Structure-for-Cob-Playhouse/

This instructable is for the roof. I did not take any photos during construction, so I have tried to makes some sketches and provide some photos that will at least give you the basic idea.

*disclaimer: I am not a professional builder, artist, or construction worker. I apologize in advance for my crude sketches and even worse construction skills. This project was done using scrap wood, many peices were already cut, so I had to sort of jig-saw puzzle much of this together.

Step 1:

I am going to assume you already looked at the sketches from: https://www.instructables.com/id/The-Structure-for-Cob-Playhouse/?ALLSTEPS , which illustrate how I put togther the basic frame of the house.

The plywood was cut to match the angle of the roof, so I had to do some eye-balling and measuring to match the 2x4's to that angle.

The #2 sketch shows how I put those 2x4's on. Note on the photo how the edge of the 2x4's are slightly raised over the edge of the 2x6. The plywood that will be plased on top needs that, or there will be a bump from the corner of the 2x6.
