I’m building a cupola to go on the top of my greenhouse to aid in ventilation. I really like the plans I found at

Has anyone had any experience in covering the roof of a cupola with copper or aluminum sheeting? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Norm did a cupola on New Yankee Workshop this season that had a sheet copper roof – pretty neat to watch the guy bending the copper.
