Cupolas have both functional and aesthetic values that provide ventilation. When a cupola is paired with a copper weathervane, it is a sight to see and admire.
A customer from Montana recently shared his finished barn project that features our cupola and weathervane. He paired the CW Ohio octagon louver cupola with a copper roof and the Good Directions polished copper elk weathervane. Even from a distance, the copper roof of the cupola and the copper weathervane made the barn shine for all to see! It looks absolutely beautiful.
Made with grade cedar, the wood cupolas are handcrafted and are a lovely architectural accent. Originally intended for ventilation purposes, the cupolas have progressed into being more than just a functional piece of architecture. In the project picture, the cupola serves a purpose of ventilating the barn, while also serving as a beautiful final piece on the barn. Additionally, cupolas are employed in revival architecture. One could install a lantern in the cupola to light up the interior of the barn. Or one can copy the renaissance era and paint stunning religious scenes on the interior of the cupola. Finally, whether one chooses to use the cupola to imitate revival architecture or not, adding a cupola is a easy way to add value to one’s property.
Our handcrafted weathervanes add a touch of elegance and are the ultimate symbol of American tradition and craftsmanship. Our Artisans use Old World techniques to forge copper, brass and other metals into functional works of art that will stand the test of time.
