Wanted: asphalt shingle rolls

by brae  

I'm seeking two rolls of What's Next rectangular asphalt shingles in Desert Tan.  I've been attempting to order from the manufacturer directly, but it has been slow going.  I'm worried about meeting the Undersized Urbanite deadline, so I figured I would post my request here.  :D

I have a couple of backup plans just in case, but I have my heart set on these.

Did you try ebay? That's always my go to site when I'm looking for something obscure. And check the international ebay sites, although I don't know what that will do to your deadline. Good luck!

Apparently, though the website it still up, What's Next has, in fact, gone out of business. Yes...it looks like you can still place an order but you will notice that they never actually take your CC and there is no answer to any emails. My friend when through this very thing several months ago. Definitely try eBay and some of the brick and mortar shops may still have some stock, but you'd have to contact each individually.

My order was taken (along with credit card info) and confirmed by them in an email (not an automated message), but I haven't been able to get in touch with them since then. They haven't charged me but told me they wouldn't do so until it shipped. So, I am in limbo at the moment.

How long ago was this? I'm surprised to hear that because when my friend contacted a doll house shop she knew had carried the shingles, she was also told they were no longer in business and they could not get them anymore. Good luck to you! (I thought it odd that they did not remove the website, though... maybe they had some unexpected situation and had to close down for awhile with intentions to resume?)

This was just in March. I'm hoping to still get the shingles from them, but I worried I might run out of time without a backup plan.

I know nothing about Minis... but to me it looks like you could cut sandpaper and make your own shingles.. BTW I voted for you all the time.. love your blog

Thank you! :D Sandpaper isn't a bad alternative, but it would be very time consuming.

I am using REAL aspalt shingles. They are just like the ones you're looking for. Much cheaper than scale shingles but Very time consuming as I am cutting/laying them all myself. However.....it looks unbelievably amazing. I cut them all in 1 inch squares. Just an idea for you.
