Chimnay Cap

The chimney cap is a replica of the second floor and roof of the house it sits on. I built it and put it up when I put on the new roof in the summer of 2012.

That's really cool.

That's a nice looking roof too. Looks great up there.

Great looking cap......is it supposed to be functionable??? from larger pic it looks like it has air space???? Copper tin looks cool!!! gotta closeup of the end trim over dormer and beside of dormer??? just looks different from standard.

Yes it is functionable, it has 6" air space between chimney and cap. The pieces on the top of the dormers are actually the 90 degree end trim pieces that go on the side of the roof. The standard was too big and didn't look right on the scaled down version. There are no flashing on the sides of the dormers because there is solid metal under the dormers so no reason to flash it and from the ground you can't tell any difference. I'm expecting the birds to build nest in the dormers eventually, I just hope the nest will not hand out the windows to be noticeable. I picked that color of roofing because it blends so well with the colors of a log home. I also changed the color of the stain on the logs but I only got about half done, waiting for spring to go back to it, that is really alot of work, its a huge home.

Thanks to you all for your kind comments.

Now you should have made a chimney cap for the chimney cap.
