Ummatching arches


Hello, the guy I hired made two eye brow arches side by side. One is 14' the other is 5'
They look weird to me, as the angles are too different. Can anyone tell me what the best way to fix this without starting over. I tried uploading pics, to no avail. The smaller one looks more like an actual arch. ???

Ummatching arches


unless the guy doesnt understand proportions for things they will definitely look different.. theres a 9 foot difference between the two

thats why it should be layed out first and compared and tweaked until they work.. i dont know how many times ive had to change things on site from what a drawing shows.. architects simply draw things.. carpenters make them happen and have to fix the design so they actually work
