A doorbell for an old salt.

A doorbell for an old salt

A nautical clang tells you there's someone at the front door in this Phoenix house.

Knowing her architect husband David's fondness for the sea, Becky Jones presented him with a ship's bell one birthday. He designed the bracket and cord run to make it their doorbell.

The welded bracket mounts to a beam above the door. Electrical conduit guides the cord from the clapper to a backspliced rope pull outside; bent, the conduit runs through a hole in the porch soffit and an adjoining beam. Brass towel bar holders fasten the conduit to the wall.
