Carl, you done good! I want one of those for my shop roof, and ‘rules of thumb’ I’ve seen is 1’ of cupola for every 10’ of roof line. That’s make mine around 3’ square, so I’m thinking it might be too much hassle. How much time to build yours?

It was a while ago, but I would say a few hours a night, with a good bottle of wine, and about 5 nights from start to installation, not rushing. If I remember right, it was a bit more work than I anticipated. I made the horse as well.
