After seeing the copulas that Dudley made I had to post what I put on my shop. It is actually a working cupola. Inside it has cedar flip louvers that I can open in the summer for all the ventilation I want. The nice thing about it is that it is fairly burglar proof. I also designed and built the weather vane on the top. The tractor is kinda patterned after a 1941 Case VI that I re-built a few years ago.

That looks great Joe but I think it should have a hat on the weather vain.

I could make it a hat out of a better hat, if I had one.

Nice project. Correct spelling of what you have there is CUPOLA. Gonna make it hard to search if you spell it wrong.

Best,

That’s a nice one. I like the tractor. We didn’t need ours to vent, barn has exaust fans. I got the second one up yesterday. Glad to get them out of my small shop, but enjoyed the project. Bravo Zulu

OK, it is an established fact that I can’t spell. At least all the letters were there. LOL at myself. Maybe its my lisdexia. Heh heh

I built the cupola and the dutch door for the shop in the smaller shop before I put the 200 sq ft addition on it. I really know what it is like to work in a small shop. The original shop was only 300 sq ft.

Hey Jim, if I used the hat that is in my photo it would be making a hat out of a worser hat. We only make bad hats out of better hats in my family.

Nice lookin’ cupola…...like the paint job on the tractor. Bet the tractor can move faster than any others…...course it only goes round and round.

Thanks. I have seen a lot of roosters and horses but I wanted a tractor, and you’re right, we have 40 mph gusting winds today and she is whipping around. I didn’t know tractors had that short of a turn radius.
