Cupolas And Weathervanes
by Jay Behm - Cupolas are relatively small structures built on the ridge or peak of roof and were originally used to ventilate the the building, allowing hot air to escape. It would have its own little roof to shed water and its walls would have louvered and screened vent openings. Warmed, stale air would flow by convection up and out of the upper interior or roof space allowing cooler air below to flow into the building. Ventilation cupolas were and still are important to interior space air quality in agricultural and industrial buildings or many types. Behm Design Garage Plans generally do not include cupola plans except for plan # 576-16
Weathervanes were often placed on the peaks of cupolas because of their being the highest visible point of the building where it could directed by air movement to show its direction. They were often just placed on a stancheon atop a roof or chimney. Wind direction was really important to farmers and outside workers watching the weather.
Both cupolas and weathervanes were built simply functional or as ornamental, architectural features of a building. In fact, they were often quite expressive of a style or symbolism important to the owner. Touring older towns, cities and rural regions you can see how common and important they were in their time.
Cupolas today are usually decorative. Weathervanes are also treated as decorative architectural ornaments but they usually are functional. Both will add delightful (and today, unusual) visual interest to a garage or other building type. My list below presents some exceptional examples of readymade products available today.

Hi Jay -
Attached is a photo of my garage (#856-1), which turned out great. The plans were thorough and made approval in my city and county (which has a strict set of design standards) much easier....Thank you.... M. C., OH
Jay, I meant to tell you much earlier what a great value your plans are. This garage was constructed late fall of '09. I was at the house the other day and it happened to be one of those perfect coastal New England summer days. The garage looked great. .........Thank you, J.W.
Jay, your plan was right on the money. I was able to get an accurate quote and was able to check up on the contractor to make sure it was being built by the specs. The low cost spent on the plan made whole project go smoother. No potential disagreements. Every time there was a question I would just say, “build it just like the plan says” Thanks again !
