Can You Guess What This Is?

Please don't think I've been neglecting the bungalow...I'm still working on things for the interior (as well as sorting out ideas for two exterior structures). But I couldn't resist starting another build - one I've been planning for the past year (yes, while still working on the bungalow...).

This is a cardboard mockup of the structure, and I've had to leave a lot of identifying details out for that reason. Would anyone like to guess what it's supposed to be?

Fun little roof details

Ilona's recent post reminded me that I haven't yet shared this picture.

The bungalow is meant to be a family home near a beach. It's based on a real-life house in an area where young families fly kites, toss Frisbees, and generally spend much of their spare time playing outside. 

I couldn't resist gluing a miniature kite and two miniature Frisbees to the roof. (The second Frisbee isn't in this picture because the roof is just too darn big to fit the entire thing into one picture and still show the details.)

I still smirk every time I see this stranded kite.
