It's an ABILENE cupola; NOT A DOG HOUSE!

Abilene House's Cupola!  


Cupola - has a nice ring to it even if it might not match the WIKI architectural definition.  My house's cupola did match the part of the definiation about an ornamental structure on the high point of the ROOF.

I first called it a cupola when the roofer told me that it was in need of repair.  As a result, the cupola came down off the roof to be examined and on the ground looks like a medium sized dog house. 


This cupola had no vent or no additional bric or brac other than a old weathervane on top.  I debated about obtaining another  weathervane to go back on the cupola, but decided not now.  Later, I may  spray paint the old one a bronze color, and then reconsider. 


Here is the house with refurbished cupola and No it never was the  DOG HOUSE!

Beverly,  Thanks for the chuckle.  You made me smile and taught me something today.  I wonder what kind of dog might need a house on the roof LOL.

No vents or any other reason for it to be up there?  Is that common in your area Beverly?  I was under the impression these were used to hide vents.  We don't see them much in SoCal.

Faith,  it would  have to be a flying dog. 

Karen, glad you smiled.

Vic, no reason that I know of other than it adds some detail to the house and a spot to put the weathervane on if i decide to do that.   It is an older home, so maybe there is something I don't know.  The cupola is not common, but looks good on this house, I think.
