Hammer Weather Vane

I'm updating Dan's posting (4-27-08) with regard to the Hammer Weather Vane. He thought it may be 4ft long. Actually its fourteen feet long! I should know, as I was the one that made it.

Hammer Weather Vane

It looks like a typical Vermont barn with a weather vane on top. However, the weather vane, in this case is a giant hammer. It looks to be at least 4 feet long. It sits on the cupola of a barn housing Laferriere Construction.
