Cupolas have been adorning barns for hundreds of years. In addition to their ornamental benefits, cupolas help increase the lifespan of barns and improve the health of barn animals. If you are looking for barn building ideas, a cupola should definitely be on your list!
The most dangerous thing to a barn is moisture. Moist air promotes mold and mildew growth, leading to wood rot and compromising the structural integrity of the barn. Furthermore, moist air is unhealthy for animals, trapping ammonia and other noxious fumes, leading to sickness and even death. Chickens, especially, rely on efficient ventilation to prevent respiratory illnesses that can wipe out a flock.
This fantastic 62’ barn boasts a perfectly matched pair of 36” concave cupolas with louvers. Their simple, yet sleek, design mimics that of the barn, accentuating its classic beauty. Topped with a copper running horse weathervane, this barn is the epitome of form and function.
Our 42” Elite style cupola is the perfect crowning flourish to this pole barn, and the howling wolf weathervane looks ready to run off across the hills. The copper roof of the cupola will develop a beautiful patina over time, blending seamlessly into the colors of the barn. If you like a truly coordinated look, we also offer colored aluminum roofs for our cupolas.
Long rooflines - such as this 65’ barn - are perfect for hosting a trio of cupolas. The center cupola is 48” wide with matched 32” cupolas on either end. The double arched louvers of the Hartford style cupola add much-needed ventilation to the barn as well as a touch of elegance.
This exquisite 30’ barn is topped with an elegant 36” Carlisle cupola. The windows of the cupola perfectly mirror the windows of the barn and bring even more natural light into the structure. If you prefer an all wood look, our cupolas are available in beautiful Western Red Cedar.
