To the right, was home into my university years. Dad built the Elmira house with hand tools in 1948. The cupola I am told was part of the original plan, however I remember that the cupola was built and installed many years later in 1965 at the time of my oldest sister's wedding. I put up a Super Estate Cupola with the Good Directions copper horse in 2008. Dad died at age 92 on 31 March 2010. The house has now been sold and demolished.
The first Calgary Cupola was built in 1989 (photo above) with a set of purchased plans and installed on my garage at 96 Havenhurst Crescent SW, Calgary. The second cupola project was built in 1995 with significant changes to those plans. Since there were many complements on the second cupola, the thought of a business venture developed. More modifications came to mind with a half dozen "beta" models being built and given out to friends. I continued to refine my scope, improve production techniques, update materials, and revise the marketing effort to my current offering. I welcome your thoughts and orders. (The first two cupolas have been replaced with upgraded models.)

Send me your requests (
weathervanes for example) as I apparently have an inside track to Santa.
I am aware that people may not have heard of "Calgary" or may not know where Calgary, Alberta is. Calgary is a city of 1 million people located in Western Canada. This business is named after the city..... My City. You may have heard of the Calgary Flames hockey club, the Calgary Stampede & Rodeo, the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics, and now Calgary Cupola & Weathervane? Yup, same place.
