How to Build a Cupola


Recommended Posts

Hello.  I need to Build a Cupola ontop of my second story Loft/ Stairwell.  

My roof has 2 pitches:  4:12 and 8:12 Vaulted Ceilings.

 

I watched a video on how to do it- but I believe because I am trying to add this over a loft and or to a roof with multiple pitches it is problematic.

I have gotten so far that the cupola is visable but it will not balloon through the second story roof to meet the Cupola roof.

 

Thank you so much for any and all advise.

What do we see in your elevation? And a camera view of the problem would be far more helpful.

You might also find a decent model online. Here's a selection from 3D Warehouse https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/search/?q=cupola&searchTab=model

I would use auto roofs and build the popup on a new floor.

That way, most things will happen automatically.

 

Yeppers ....  except I ain't smart enough to do the auto roofs
