He also wanted these 390 copper domes added to the roof edge and base skirt. This weighs 320#. The cost for this was $9,723.58 total installed. The crane cost was only $360 for their 2 hour minimum charge, since this only took them 15 minutes.

Landry 24oz copper Cypress Swoop style Chimney Cap, double tier base, 4/12 hipped roof top, w/pair of removable larger than life size Blue Heron or Egret stylized bird figures

This client had us build our first cypress swoop style copper chimney cap. This was for Rosa and Felix Landry of  Abita Springs, Louisianna. The inside base is 37.5" x 60.5". They also wanted these bird figures to be removable, while being able to withstanding near hurricane wind forces, which greatly increased the complexity of this design and fabrication, but we are up for challenges like this.

Here is a photo copy of the nice letter Thomas had included with the flash-drive he mailed to me that had all these install photos to share with you.


He writes: 7 July 2019

David,
I've enclosed digital photos of the recent cap installation.
You are truly a Master Craftsman, and I'm convinced there is no one else in this Country that had the ability to fabricate such masterpieces.
I am 100% saticfied with your customer service & end results. After studying these caps as they sit atop the chimneys, there isn't one thing that could have been designed better.

Most scincerely Thomas

By the way, that's me in the JLG, my Son-in-law was the ground guy. I'll never understand how the crane operator hit the back chimney totally in the blind. 3 caps, 2 hours install - start to finish.

David:
I just wanted to let you know that the chimney cap did arrive (last Friday). I have not yet installed it (we had snow on the ground when it arrived and got another 6 inches yesterday so it may be a little bit), but I did open the crate and take it out. It is better than I hoped. You did a terrific job. I will definitely send you pictures once it goes up, but in the interim I wanted to make sure you knew I received it, and how pleased I am with the result. I showed it to some friends while it was out of the crate (I have since put it back in so it is still brand new when I finally am able to install it), and they said “wow, that looks awesome – it really matches your lanterns” (I had not told them that the inspiration for the design was the lanterns. You nailed it. Thanks very much.

Rumer 24oz Copper Chimney Cap
