To ensure that your new cupola looks attractive and fits properly atop your shed, horse barn, garage or home, follow these guidelines:
Measure your roof's unbroken ridge line all the way across. Then calculate the size of your cupola as follows:
Ridge Line Length (in feet) X 1.25" = Minimum Cupola Size
Example: If your roof measures 24 feet across, your cupola should be at least 30". (24 X 1.25 = 30)
For roof lengths of 48' or longer, you might want to consider adding 2 or 3 cupolas to balance the space for the best look.
