Another look.

We met again with architect Rick Monahon this afternoon. This was his second site visit and his first look around the snow-less foundation. We also climbed up to the belfry to inspect the timbers, see the old Revere bell with its new striking mechanism, and visually check the balustrade at that level—which seemed quite high enough, but there were still the two octagonal stages, dome, and "Flying Breeches" weathervane above our heads! Well, at least we could survey the meetinghouse roof below. The good news is that the building's needs still appear to be what we had always expected: masonry repair, painting, and roofing.
