You Sir are an artist. What kind of time does it take for completion start to finish? Hey- not for nothing but copper is worth alot- as you all know. We've had numerous businesses in the central NY area robbed of copper and even new construction torn up by thieves to get the copper out. That better be a long way off the roof or it might as well have a neon target sign flashing on it for thieves.
Not sure of weight, but heavy. It has a wood foundation, and 4 - 3x10 sheets of copper. Plus nails, rivits, and solder. Takes about 4 days from start to finish. Working with copper is very slow. Everything is custom (no patterns). Oliver
