Audrey Helffrich's Copper Chimney Cap
Bethlehem, Pensylvania

Audrey Helffrich of Bethlehem, Pensylvania had CBD build this chimney cap with a 32oz copper roof cover with a weathervane/finial support pipe built into the roof structure.

= 106# copper weight
X $30

Roberta & Scott Cline's set of 2 Copper Chimney Caps
Spring Grove, Illinois
 (11/16 - 2/17)

Roberta and Scott Cline in Spring Grove, Illinois had their architect design this classic castle looking house for them with these twisted chimneys and clay chimney pots, but they felt they were just too small and did not clearly show the detail of a King and Queen crown look they were after, so they finally found my web site, liked what we have done, and wanted that for their new house. We have been ironing out the details since Halloween of 2014 and finally was able to ship them over 2 years later.


This set took us just over 2.5 months to complete: from 11/18/16 to 2/5/17

Cost: $5,010 delivered

Bisher's 20oz & 24oz Copper
Gas Fire Pit Exhaust Hood, Flue, & Chimney Cap
Petosky, Michigan
 (11/15)

This is twin wall fire pit exhaust hood made to be mounted under their covered pergola. We built this for a Contractor named Dick Noggle in Michigan for his Client Jon Bisher in Petoskey, Michigan for The Hearthside Grove Motor-coach Resort.

The lower rim of this octagon hood is 60" wide across the outside formed with a 45 degree angle sloping up to a 15" width at the top for the vertical flue. This hood has an inner liner as well with a 3" gap between the outer shell, which adapts to a 12" wide flue inside diameter. The flue shown is 4' tall, and has another 18" long extension below the weather-head, as shown below. They are not dealing with high heat, since this is a natural gas fire pit. This also came with a thick 32oz copper roof flange.

We had also provided the aluminum and copper roof flashing for their reroof project, and replaced the gutters with copper, as well as installed copper covered ridge vents (not seen in this photos).

Subject: Best wishes from Napa


Good morning David
Sending you and all at Copper by Design my best wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous 2017. The chimney cap you made for me has been tested by several winter storms with heavy horizontal rain from 40-50 mph winds. It is also developing a very nice weathered patina. I absolutely made the right choice.

Best regards
David Hallett
