Here is a weather station box I made for my dad. This proved to be a little tricky for me as I had never made lovures before. It is made completely out of pine and painted white to reflect the heat/sun. By looking at the roof from the back, you’ll notice that it is pitched inward. It had to be pitched to allow the water to escape underneath a rain gauge that sits on top of it. I thought this was a good design! The other roof is purely decorative. I thought it needed somthing!

Looks good.

But why did he need a weather station? Does he have the instruments normally housed in these?

Thanks fellas’!

Firecaster, before I made this box he had the instruments out in the elements. I think they were attached to an old broom stick or somthing. This box houses the temperture gauge, the rain gauge sits on the top and we mounted the wind gauge the pole that we mounted the whole station on. Maybe I’ll run over there and get a picture some day and post it! Thanks for the comments!
