How to Build a Cupola
You must also consider materials when looking to build your own cupola. Most homeowners will be restricted to wood and shingles because higher-quality materials (such as Azek vinyl and copper) are cost prohibitive. You are also limited to pre-made louvers and windows, and it can be difficult to find them in the size you need.
Lastly, it is important to realize that cupola plans are not one size fits all. The width of the base and height of the vents will vary depending on the length of your roof and the height of your house. Without considering all the factors, homeowners often choose a cupola size that is too small, creating an undesirable effect.
