Gustafson's Copper Weather-head Cap
Kansas City, Missouri
 (2/18)

This cute project was for their back patio fireplace flue liner weather-head made for Craig & Susan in Kansas City, MO. This is a simplified Tuscany arch style cover with a few improvements from my previous designs: tapered eave with hidden rivets in the corners, and I made a copper covered wood spacer to form this another 3" wider than their 13" wide flue liner and make a better attachment without the risk of cracking their terracotta flue liner, which was only protruding 2.5" above the top. I also used a thicker 24oz copper for the roof top cover, since there is no internal bracing.

45.9# total weight (w/o the spacer)
- 3.4# SS screen weight
- 13.6# wood weight
= 28.9# copper weight

Cost: $1,800 delivered in a custom wood crate

Tulloch's Copper Chimney Cap
Salem, Oregon
 (5/17)

Frank Tulloch tells me how at 73 years young he cannot wait around to see this chimney cap patina, so he wanted us to give it a work-over ahead of time. This was the first time we had drafted out a chimney cap on the copper sheet, and then spent the next week or so with it out in the wet weather we have been having, with some added ammonia to help speed this process a bit. The total cost for this with freight to Winston-Salem, North Carolina is $4,406.70. This has a base that is to fit over a wide course of brick that is 36" X 55.5" long. The roof cover on this is 2" out past the width of the base.

Cost Breakdown:

136# total
- 18.4# SS screen weight
= 117.6# copper weight
X $25#
= 2,940 cost for the copper work
+ $483.40 for the 24.17 sq' of SS screen at $20 sq'.
+ $183 for the full week of tarnishing work and 2 dozen chemical applications
+ $350 for a custom wood crate
+ $450 estimated for truck freight

= 4,406.40 total cost delivered

Cost: $4,406.91 delivered

Based on the final weights the cost went down by $314.09 below the quoted ceiling cost.
