Haven’t been posting much here lately. I’ve either been a) travelling, or b) working on various construction projects.

The main project is some serious house renovations. Currently bulking up the foundation and supports on one end of our 100 year old house. Here are some wood wedges I made so I could squeeze some sister joists into the framing in the crawlspace. With these wedges and a few whacks from a hammer I can lift the floor about a quarter of an inch.

Went antique shopping today with a friend and found this lovely Soviet-era camera. The serial number indicates it was manufactured the same year I was — 1974. Not bad for $15 (the camera, not me).
