Light & Airy

Photo by Nancy Andrews

Cupolas were originally designed to add natural light and ventilation to the area under a roof. They sit on the ridge of a roof and can be found in many shapes, including square, round, and octagonal.

On barns, they're meant to allow a continuous flow of air into the hayloft, helping to dry the hay. This multi-sided octagon features wooden louvers to promote ventilation.

View Too

When a cupola is big enough for a person to look out through its windows, it is also called a belvedere, as in this square cupola in a style typical of Italianate houses.

Spotlight on Light Fixtures

We give the customer many choices at The Barn Yard, and one of those choices is the light fixtures. We don’t limit the customer with a small selection of choices. Instead, we’re able to work with just about any light fixture the customer has in mind.

Often, we’ll refer to other structures we’ve built as inspiration for the customer. A tour around our showcase locations in Ellington or Bethel, or the original location in Windsor Locks, is often inspiration enough. Additionally, we’ll suggest visiting Barn Light Electric Co. online for further ideas. Either way, our goal is to get the customer inspired and excited about choosing the light fixtures for their new building.

So again, let us take the opportunity today as the days get shorter and and the nights get longer to turn the spotlight on light fixtures. May the gallery below shine brightly and inspire you for your future barn project. When you’re ready, contact us to get started.

Beautify Your Home with a Roof Cupola

What are My Choices Designing a Cupola for My Roof?

A copper roof cupola is an eye-catching way of topping the cupola on your roof and is very popular. Top that with a copper weathervane and you’ll have heads turning for sure. This Old House has many great photos of both older, classic houses with roof cupolas and newer ones with roof cupolas added.

Cupola Shapes, Styles, and Structures

As you can see in this article at Madison Barns there is not only much interesting history and logic behind roof cupolas, there are also many distinctive shapes. Square, hexagon, and octagonal are the main shapes, and roof shape can vary as well. Another decision to make is what materials you want to use for your roof cupola.

In conclusion, if adding beauty and curb appeal to your home is your goal you should certainly consider a roof cupola. One of our many designs and features is sure to please, and a side benefit may be putting your roof cupola to work ventilating your attic as well as adding visual beauty to your home.

7 Ideas To Help Your Home Out of the Darkness

Re-Think the Architecture

Add Clerestory Windows:

Clear a story of your house just for light. It's a healthy and cost-effective solution right from the design book of American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Tucked just below the roof, clerestory windows invite light and ventilation inside. Or raise the roof and put in a dormer of windows.

Build a Greenhouse Addition:

A room made of glass will flood your world with light. Soaking in the sun, you may feel as though you are living in a modernist dwelling like the famous Farnsworth House or Philip Johnson's Glass House. Glass-walled rooms are not for everyone, however. Before you buy or build a greenhouse, think about the pros... and the cons.

Would a Cupola Add Light?

Homes in warmer climates sometimes have rooftop cupolas for ventilation. However, many cupolas are merely decorative and not useful for admitting light to a dark house. In fact, a cupola on a ranch house may end up making the residence look like a Kansas Post Office.

Yes, it's a good idea to hire an architect for any of these projects. Read on for some easier solutions.

Install Daylight Systems

Skylights were a staple in Frank Lloyd Wright interiors. Today, dome or barrel vault rooflights and residential skylights are popular solutions for bringing light into dark houses.

Designers often use the terms daylighting and daylight harvesting to describe the process of getting natural light into the interior spaces. While the terminology is modern, the ideas are not really new. Frank Lloyd Wright would probably roll his eyes at today's daylight systems and products—natural light was integral to his philosophy of organic design.

"We didn't invent the sun. We just improved it," claims Solatube, maker of Tubular Daylighting Devices (TDDs). When an attic is between the roof and the living space, tubular skylights or light tunnels can be used to channel the natural light into the desired interior space.

Daylighting research is conducted at many universities, including the Lighting Research Center (LRC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). The LRC has invented a different kind of skylight called a Light Scoop (PDF Design Guide) that can better harvest the daylight in overcast climates.

Check Your Landscape

That tree you planted when you first bought the house may be decades old by now. Nothing like vegetation and kids to show how you've aged. You can't remove the kids, but maybe you could trim back some of that shading vegetation.

Follow the path of the sun during every season and every part of the day. Remove anything between the sun and your house. Replace tall trees with smaller trees suitable to your environment. Don't plant too close to the house, especially in fire-prone areas.

Use High Reflectivity Paint

Use high reflectivity white paint anywhere you can to make the most of the light that does enter the interior spaces. Bright white ledges beneath windows can capture natural light. Some resourceful designers have even suggested constructing a wall outside the house. Sound crazy? This reflecting wall technique was used by Hungarian-born architect Marcel Breuer back around 1960. Breuer designed a freestanding Bell Banner to reflect sunlight into the north-facing Saint John's Abbey. Think about your own home. A bright white wall or privacy fence could reflect sunlight into the house—sort of like the sun's reflection off a full moon. Call it full moon lighting.

Hang a Chandelier

Modern recessed lights seem to be found anywhere and everywhere, but you don't have to hide your lighting. Be more ostentatious with chandeliers. They worked in the great palaces of Europe, didn't they?

Chandeliers today, like the fishy one shown here, can be works of art that speak to an owners' style. Other popular styles include:

Go High Tech

You can't afford this video wall—yet. At the New York City headquarters of the internet company InterActiveCorp (IAC), architect Frank Gehry created a lobby with more than recessed lighting. The IAC Building, located in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, was completed in March 2007, so maybe this technology has come down in price.

Well, we can always dream.

Learn From the Pros

No one method of lighting a dark space is the best approach. Many public spaces, like the Hawaii State Library shown here, use a combination of methods, such as chandeliers and skylights.

Learn More:

Learn from observing your surroundings. Look at the lighting in airports, libraries, shopping malls, and schools. Ask a lighting expert for inspiration and how-to tips.

Ideas for lighting a cupola

My client wants me to light her cupola (man, something sounds wrong there). This is my fourth paying job and each one has had a different challenge.

I've lit dormers before, but they were only a few feet from the gutter that I used to mount the lights. This cupola is a good 15-18 feet from the gutters, and the roof is cedar shingled. I'd rather mount the light(s) close to the ground if I can, for maintenance reasons, but I'll do what it takes to get the cupola to look good.

Any suggestions? Will a couple of 12-degree MR16s mounted at the corners of the garage do the trick? Or should I be looking at something like Unique's Gemini mounted directly on the cupola?

To put this into context, this is the first of potentially three phases in this job. In the first phase, the client wants me to light the facade of the home, several large Shagbark Hickories in the front yard, a couple small specimen trees where the front walkway meets the street, and a few trees in the back yard (to add depth to the scene from the front viewing perspective). Phase II and III will involve a large patio and lots more trees in the back yard.

Thanks in advance for your help. I appreciate it that you guys take the time to help a rookie.
