Design on 35 degree grid

Let's imagine that we wanted to place an area of paving into a design, but wanted the orientation of the paving to match a line that had been drawn at an angle of -35 degrees to the horizontal (shown below). It is simpler to draw the paving using orthogonal snap settings, rotate the group and then move into position than it is to try and work out a complex grid setting so you can draw the outline of the paving in situ.
