Building a home
Our home was completed by November 2010 and we've been living in there since. You'll a few shots here, also showing the stairway for our cat "Felix" that I constructed in September 2011. Unfortunately Felix passed away in a car accident in January 2012, but our new cats Lucy and Leo use the stairway happily as well.
We started building a new home in spring 2010. Up to then we had been living in a flat, but we wanted to have a home that fits our needs.

I also modified an old digicam to be controlled by a microcontroller (yes, you'd guess it's an ATmega8 :-) to take photos every 10 to 15 minutes during the days of construction. I then used mencoder to convert the JPEGs to an accelerated movie. It's quite funny to see the work of weeks or months in just three or four minutes. I tried to provide as many different video formats as I could imagine would be needed by all the visitors, just try them out, the one or other will run almost for sure on your PC, too.
The videos are quite large and take some time to load, don't worry if they don't start immediately.
