    First kit finished for '21 (tho most of the work was in Dec).
    Budd Root's "Cavewoman." Resin model kit by Critical Mass, Sculpt by Mike Petryszack, based on a drawing by Frank Cho. Painted with enamels, acrylics, pastels, inks, etc, etc...
    The usual disclaimer that I usually build spaceships and airplanes, and just like to try a figure now and then to see if I can do it.

    Fellas - it's not a fucking wolverine or an anaconda - they are raccoons. Grow a pair!

    :lol: we have buildings like that too - except ours are FAKE. :(
    Yep, a big thing in my county is strip malls with brick and stone facades in the front to disguise the fact that there's really nothing of substance behind them.
    They all hide unneeded cookie-cutter businesses that won't last two years. The actual affordable homes in my county are cookie-cutter subdivision vinyl siding style.
    A few have a brick facade portion as a feature but they look pathetic.

    I think that building is 200 to 250 years old. Some down there are 270 years old

    I assume they are paid off by now! :lol: That said occasionally they find a tree that old in my county, so there is that.

    Because... stuff.
    I doubt it was intended to be crooked. But 250 years later it is.
    I think its been 'off kilter' for at least 100 years

    I imagine the ground under it has shifted and subsided a bit in that time.

    Is it just crooked on the outside, or is it crooked on the inside too?

    I wonder if there's a buried water way?

    I've done renos on places along what was Garrison Creek here (before it got filled in during the late 19th) and over a 40' foundation run, there can be drops of over 12" in the floor joists.

    One of my neighbors' doorbell cam got video of the fox being chased away from the welcome mat by her cat. :lol:

    We'd already cleaned the cars off completely 5 hours earlier! JEP_0005.jpg

    The gentle thrumm of snow blowers permeates the neighborhood JEP_0007.jpg JEP_0008.jpg JEP_0010.jpg

    That's as of 4PM, with an other 3-5" promised over night.
