The attractive Calgary Cupola is my unique design that is custom built to meet your barn, home, garage or garden shed needs. Using 100% local Canadian spruce, pine or fir woods or optional cedar, I build to match the slope of your roof. I offer painting and shingling, or I can deliver ready for you to sand, paint, or shingle.
The Calgary Cupola comes in two components for the Garage sizes and Garden Shed - the cupola roof and the base - and three components for the Estate sizes - the roof, louver assembly and base.
There is an internal fastening system within the base, using a lag screw to your rooftop, is a simple and secure installation. Two tools are required for the base installation - a level, and a 3/8" ratchet or wrench.
The Calgary Cupola roof cap is then placed on top of the base and secured with the eight (8x) supplied wood screws. The only tool required for the roof installation is the #2 square (#2 Robertson) screwdriver.
The Super Estate Cupola, Estate Cupola and Large Garage Cupola must be sent by truck because of their large shipping size. The Garage Cupola, Small Garage Cupola, Garden Shed Cupola and Gazebo Cupola go by the postal system.
Calgary Cupola & Weathervane continues to refine the product line and presentation to you, my Customer. Your comments and orders are always welcome.
To design a cupola, to check prices and to place an order, you are invited to use the Cupola Designer. To make an inquiry you can use the Inquiries Form. Both cases will send me an email. Please ensure to fill in your name and email address because if you do not, we cannot get back to you.
I have developed the four foot cubed Super Estate Cupola. The assembled bare cupola weighs 160# and in a 5/12 pitch measures four feet square at the base trim line, 4 1/2 feet at the drip line, and almost 4 feet in height.
I build the Super Estate in three components and will ship it in one crate. The crate will measure 54 inches square and 22 inches high for a 5/12 pitch cupola. The cupola and crate weighs 220 pounds.
Even if a larger size is desired, I will look at your special needs and expand the plan accordingly, within reason. This is truly a custom handcrafted cupola.
66 or 69 Super Estate (right) two (2x) cupolas built for Pebble Beach, California. Constructed in three components. Photo before packing. Identical dimensions to #62SE & #63SE very top above.
The Estate Cupola in a 5/12 pitch measures 40" in height, 44" square at the drip line, 35" square at the beveled trim line in the base and 32" square at the base. The base including louvers weighs 65# and the cap 32# without roofing. With shingling, the cap weighs approximately 75#. It will require shipment by truck to you.
The Estate Cupola will ventilate 2500 square feet of ceiling space with the roof opened up underneath and a supply of fresh air available in the eaves. For a completely finished look, the 46" or 30" Whitehall aluminum weathervanes or various copper weathervanes are appropriate.
The Large Garage Cupola in a 5/12 pitch, measures 28" in height, 34"square at the drip line, and 28" square at the base. The cap weighs 25# without roofing and the base 35#. It will ventilate 2000 square feet of ceiling space with the roof opened up underneath. A 30" Whitehall or Derco weathervane is appropriate. We adjusted the size of this cupola to make it the largest size that is acceptable for US UPS shipping (in a 5/12 pitch). For cupolas ordered in a pitch greater than 5/12 we can reduce the rows of louvers to maintain the overall height within UPS shipping sizes. We can stretch the normal dimensions by 1 1/2" height and 2" width for a premium and send via US Post.
