    So I found a nice spot to place a custom 18x18 in Malas. I was hoping to place a keep/castle but then found out not possible in Malas which was bit of a let down.

    I must of tried about 3 different designs already but can't get the hang of designing anything good.

    I was wondering if anyone can show me some nice places in Europa to give me some inspiration! Are there any amazing designed plots that I can visit to get my creative flow going?!

    I should go and have a good browse here - UO Homes and Castles - Stratics Forums

    Lots and lots of fantastic designs, as well as useful how to threads, and links to extremely creative forums :)

    Try thinking about making a house, workshop or shop where your chars might like to live or hang out.
    Remember that you don't have to "build" on the whole plot. You can make a garden or something that complements the local scenery on part of the plot.
    You can make more than one building on the plot: an out-building or a row of houses.
    The plot storage stays the same whatever kind of building you put on it, so it doesn'y have to be something magnificent.

    You should have a look at the giant undies shaped house, 2nd left of Europa Auction House.

    A fine piece of decoration, if you ask me !

    Just been trying to find this.

    I've got a design down and keep changing my mind! I hate stairs, and finding a good place to put them. Ahhhhhh!

    Also I took this screenshot a few years back. I want to add a treasure room to my new place.

    Anyone seen this castle and knows where it is, it might be long gone but worth asking.

    I would suggest checking out some of the Japanese shards for idea's they tend to be very creative on house designs.
