Documenting on high

Today I’m doing some live Revit documentation of a church steeple. Really cool stuff.

Apparently the top of the steeple is leaning for the least 100 or so years. The intent is document the structure to see if a suitable jacking point can be used to right the steeple.

Water has done a number over the years but overall the building is in fine shape. I really like the rock counter balance on top of the bell.

Looking skyward to the top of the steeple. Clearly my iPhone flash is not bright enough to illuminate all the way up.

Corner structure detail. It was fun figuring out how all the loads are transferred down. Cold job this am and the entire steeple shook a lot when the wind picked up. Below is an image from my finished Revit model.
