    ..so what do you think? Lord Paidric mentioned where on Europa they were so I paniced and made the changes and decorations I had in my head for a long time.

    This is my main house at Trinsic gate, ment for the Foxglove family to live in.

    Next to the main building is the crafters little shed. Nothing to see inside, its mostly containers an d forge .

    The last is my "Mini Castle" a store house for bods and imbuing materials.
    It might look strange here and there but I read "A Song of Ice and Fire" by George R.R.Martin.. Amazing epic saga that has many connections with the UO world, and every tile is inspired by something in that saga, even if it isnt any specific buiding.

    Some of the pics will be added later today.

    Your houses are really cute! You have a great touch with plant deco. I also really like how your deco is cozy, without being cluttered. :)

    Thanks for the positive comments!
    Yes my girls like cosy with soft colours that doesnt stick out. I also try to make my places easy to work in , all things I need often is near the door.
    I also try not to place one item per tile, tather group things and let things cover eachother or be half behind walls etc. For a museum or if you have rares to display its a bit different but I keep to simpler stuff that just fit togeather.

    Lovely house!!

    I particularly like the the swamp area with the cobweb, i bet the new swamp tiles would look good there.

    Amazing houses Minerva! I was lucky enough to get a private tour when I stopped by one day, looks even better up close and has lots of nice little details. Really impressive! :)

    Silly question perhaps but how can you take pictures like that, zoomed out? :p Im working on my houses now and would love to get pictures done like that when it's finished.

    I love your shower in the first set of pictures. The water dripping on the floor is great.

    Thanks again for all nice comments.
    The shower I saw ..and even a better one .. on this forum , so its stoolen. I could not place the water patches on the floor where I wanted them. Got a message there was some other magic item there so I could not place. There were no such thing , not up or downstairs eighter so I gave up atleast for now.

    The pumpkin patch at the small house is one 20 stones pumpkin with each of my chars name on. I even made them ladies for this. The necro has a black one. =).. silly me.

    I see some dragon statuettes on the roof that would block you from placing the travesty patch (it's considered a statue I believe). Try putting the patch in a bag, then put it on the tile you want it on, then axe it and lock it down. Else you'll have to pick up those dragon stats before you place it.

    Lol, very cute. :D

    I dont know how I could forget about pouches and an axe! I guess I was so frustrated I could not find any "magic item" anywhere. The water patches are where I want them now! Thank you!:bowdown::bowdown:
