Last week Black Canyon Builders (www.blackcanyonbuilders.net) and owner of the Day House, Mark Williamson, of Durango, Colorado, installed a beautiful Eagle-topped weather vane (www.weathervane.com) on top of the Turret of the home.
The original Day House had a beautiful Weather Vane that was lost either by falling over due to neglect or by a thief. It adds a lot of interest to that part of the home and you can see it from several vantage points including the intersection of Florida Road and 15th Street just in front of the house. The Weather Vane is made from Brass and Copper and will turn a gray-ish patina over time from exposure to the elements.
Here is what the newest addition to the home looks like.
