Custom wind mill

This is the framework and beginnings of a custom-built "wind mill" for the Flynn Residence. Paula contacted me last fall about solving an unsightly "plumbing adornment" that so rudely invaded her large, expansive garden. After thinking about it during the winter, we took a look at it again this spring and came up with a mock wind mill that is to be sheeted with various metals: aluminum, galvanized steel flashing, stainless and some corrugated steel if we can find some. The mill is intended to have an organic, natural feel but still retain some "modern" elements. It will have a fully functioning vane and blade assembly. The 5/8" shaft will turn in two ball bearing assemblies concealed under a steel box to keep it out of the elements.
