I'll let you know if there is a problem.
I just love the sound of bells. I was browsing the website at usedbells.com
and noticed this beauty:
I wish I had a place for it...
I was looking for a cupola bell. I have a cupola on the house, which currently is used solely for ventilation. I thought it would be neat to have a cupola bell there, with a bell rope hanging into the house. They have several, and this one looks like it would fit:
if I could just figure out how to lift it into place without tearing out the living room ceiling. I have a small hatch in the ceiling, but I don't think it's large enough, and it's several yards from the cupola, which would make snaking it through the trusses a necessity. I'm afraid a bit of study would be called for.
Perhaps I should just build a bell tower out front. That way I could buy the Chinese Bell instead. (one can always dream...)
