    Okay, I admit it. I stink at UO interior design. So I am begging for help. I've looked through the design threads and haven't found anything like this. Maybe I'm just missing it.

    I recently placed a tower on a shard that is new to me so I don't have gold to buy decorating tokens and such. And I don't want to take up a lot of storage space with tons of lockdowns. So here is my design challenges:

    I do want it to look like a tower from the middle ages which means no TV's, couches, aquariums, that sort of thing.

    The bottom floor will be the work area, a smithy area, a woodworkers area, a weaving and sewing area,and a place for cooking. Basically the idea is that the bottom floor is for those that work for the Lord and Lady of the house.

    The above floors would be the living area for the Lord and Lady's family. A great hall, a library, an area for the study of alchemy and the magical arts. A bedroom would be okay too. Any other ideas?

    Does anyone have any examples of any of this? Any suggestions on items to use and layout would sincerely be appreciated. Oh yes, if you have images for those that are designed challenged that would be most appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Lady Amber Witch
     
  2. Our tower on Sonoma, right across from the Yew GY, [Trammel].

    First Floor, Tavern area, with blacksmith in the back room. Tables have storage under them as well as a anvil in special location.

    Second floor, Library area as well as Tailor area.

    third floor, master suite, fishing area, had to spoil them with the TV still in the bedroom. There a toilet hidden in there also, got to have some sort of in door plumbing around. ;)

    Roof top, apple, peach and cherry tree along with a cannon and our plant working area, we grow just enough orange leaf plants for our characters at all our homes.

    This is great! I love the humor of the canon and the archery butt! Great layout on the bottom floor. The tavern area is very cool.
    Thanks!!

    Yah, now all he needs to do is get a rented vendor and dress them up in a jester suit + hat like a clown, and position them in front of the archery butte. :p

    These houses were decorated a looong time ago, but there are still some good ideas here. I chose to sort by type, you'll need to scroll nearly to the bottom to find "tower" on the left side in yellow.

  5. Maybe on top of the archery butte using gaso square, as if he leap to get away? ;)

    I see my Daughter's Villa is still on that list. Thats is cool.
