    The old thread was getting a bit unwieldy and several of the houses are no longer there or the pictures are no longer hosted, so we're starting over fresh. Post your house design pictures here, and include the plot size (if you remember it). Also, if the house is public, post your shard, coordinates and facet for those of us that would like to come by and have an up-close look.

    Currently no longer own the house, but just wanted to share. The house was empty at the time this pic was taken, with just a few plants placed.

    This is an upgrade i did for a friend... the main structure was there, i just went over and revamped the stairs/built a roof/tweaked some walls etc. Pretty pleased though, turned out looking alot better than it was... (i wish i had thought to get a before pic ;-) )

    Just a little something I did a while back. It's a group of 3, however, one house was in between them.. But just managed to get the house in between the two treehouses, so these designs will change once i rearrange the house sizes etc.. and put them together.. but enjoy... Interior screens will go up later if folks want them. The houses are actually roomier than expected considering the design. I guess I was trying to create a sort of "Heartwood" type village. Not sure if I succeeded though.

    Europa Shard, Marble Island...

    I would like to see interior shots. The exterior is gorgeous. There are some very nice designs in this thread. I would post my shop but I cannot get the entire thing in one image.
     
  7. Wow jcesare , you've outdone your self in the farm and the manner! They both look really good.

    Thanks [​IMG]
    Finally managed to put the interior screenshots together (had to do some splicing together since otherwise they also don't go in one image) there's only one little area I never finished deco'ing.. and that was the living room area. was going to put a couch in by the fireplace but never got around to it.

    and the smaller house:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I did do one that was even smaller near Trinsic, but I dropped this one in order to take the plot in between the two you see above. This was the original tree:
    (originally done on TC, I think I missed taking a screen of the one in Trinsic! ack! so this will have to do ) the later design got rid of the excess leaves in the front corner of this tree and was somewhat larger

    Beautiful layout, and great job getting it to look like a united treehouse "compound". I especially like the reddish wood flooring on the walkways. It is a nice contrast to the greens, browns, and grays.

    I don't think I ever posted pics of my house in the old thread, so here they are.
    Again all credit for the design goes to Jaddak. I took his awsome design and slightly tweeked it to fit my needs. I always had trouble finding a house style I liked, I would get bored looking at the same walls everyday. That's the best thing about this place, each floor can be different, and you can't tell from the outside.
    Location: Chesapeake
    38 degrees 13 minutes North
    39 degrees 26 minutes West
    From Makoto-Jima gate head west till you get to the first road, it is right outside of town (Zento)

    Okay...

    So this is my 'flagship' house, which used to be my home on Sonoma while I still played. I believe it still stands, under someone else's ownership. Unsure if it's public.

    [​IMG]

    It's a 16x16 on the north ring in Zento. Won two awards, one as a local shard thing and the other was Castles & Courtyards' roof contest. Was submitted for Markeedragon's big one at the start of UOSE, but did not place.



    [​IMG]

    This is an undecorated picture of my entry for the UOML beta's 'best one gets a free upgrade code' contest. No luck there.



    [​IMG]

    That used to stand in Darkmoor on Sonoma... Never bothered doing the RP thing I was planning on with it, so it's gone now.

    Second/Third floor interior

    This was my design entry for the Mage Tower on Sonoma... Wasn't used.



    [​IMG]

    A variant on the one up top, done for a friend. Used to be down the street from my place, until its owner quit the game, leaving to another person who put up something truly terrible.



    [​IMG]

    One of several places done for Calell on Sonoma... Didn't turn out as well as I had hoped.

    Done for Venus on Sonoma, another variant on my place.

    years ago a small player run town was started on chessy.
    that town has slowed died out over the past few years, and is now.. passed on. The last remaining founding fathers, Lord Ander, has now moved on from the game as well.

    Friday night i purchased his largest home in the old town of Nidaros.
    I redid the design and made it my own. Im still deco'n it but this is what i have thus far..

    as a side note.. he left many items in the house made by his blacksmith, Lord Ander. Ive used them all over the house just to pay respect to the man that held up Nidaros as long as he could..

    (pardon the stuff on the roof in the last pic... items left from last deco and havent gotten them down yet)

    Hello,

    I was asked to post my house from another post here..soo here it is.
    This is a 14x10 on the Atlantic shard. It is located on the far east side of the swamp north of Trinsic. I call it "The Drunken Oar"
    http://picasaweb.google.com/fishfry/UO/photo#4981617394324865042

    I am not done decorating it yet but have gotten a good start on it.

    Outside the house:
    I used fishing nets to cover the teleporter tiles.

    Secret Dungeon
    This cannot be seen from anywhere but on this lvl inside the house.
    I am thinking of covering the entire floor with bone piles but need to collect more to make it complete.
    http://picasaweb.google.com/fishfry/UO/photo#4981617347164110866

    Main Level
    Here you can see the bar, which I am in the process of covering the floor with regular fishing nets.
    You can also see the small work shop for my crafter (pictured)

    Top Level
    Here we can see my green house/garden room. I use a lot of orange petals and usually sell/use the green thorns. I am in the process of collecting plain green fern seeds which I will use the plants on the small balcony's for decorations.

  47. House of Furniture
    Shard: Napa Valley
    Location: Just outside the west gate of luna.
    Website: www.uothief.com/westluna/westluna.html

    [​IMG]

    This is the heart and soul of the house. In this shot you can see 46 of the 50 total vendors, 18 public furniture dye tubs, and my biggest big fish hanging on the back wall. All the vendors on the inside all sell furniture &amp; decoration related goods.

    [​IMG]

    Now that was the customer entrance. This is the long way around. I designed this way on purpose to encourage visitors to use the main entrance, and stop them from peeking in from behind the counter. Various vendors with random goods.

    [​IMG]

    My library. Including a guest book on the table, walls of runebooks and player written stories &amp; guides I've collected. Also public runebook dyetubs near the entrance.

    [​IMG]

    More public tubs: leather, special, black and more furniture tubs. Also my little smithy porch. A lot of times I'll be smithing away out here.

    [​IMG]

    You can go down the stairs 2 floors to get to the area behind the counter or go all the way down to the basement. This is where I store all my junk. Everything stackable goes in the crates, all the granite goes in the baskets. Also easy access to run back to Luna.

    I just remembered I said in the goza steps thread, that I would post my house design once I got finished. So here it is. [​IMG]

    This is on the Origin Shard Facet, an 18x18.


    The house is designed to resemble Elminster Aumar's windmill-like tower from the Forgotten Realms, Shadowdale Village.

    The drawning I tried to recreate it from is this one:
    [​IMG]

    Here is the finished product: (copied from my post in the T.Hunter forum)

    <u>Elminster's Tower</u><ul>[*]Rune Library &amp; Lockpicking House - Lockpicking Boxes are all GM Tinker Made, located inside the two barrels outside of the Tower.[*]Origin Shard Fragment[*]Trammel Facet, outside Skara Brae.[*]Coordinates: 55o 27'N 33o 2'W[*]Elminster Aumar - Old Sage, Forgotten Realms Guild [FR][/list]"If you would like to visit the Old Sage's Tower, you will find it east of Skara Brae, along the road just outside the first small farm fields. Please be sure to read the Sign (blue book next to the entrance), as it contains some history and lore told of the tower by the resident Sage." ~Orvago, Druid of Mother Sosaria

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    "The Old Sage has allowed me to house my collection of Two Hundred Grandmaster Tinker crafted Lockpicking Boxes from my days as a youth, learning the lockpicking trade... You will find these two hundred boxes, some how, magically no doubt, packed neatly into the two Brown Barrels outside the tower. Be sure to read the blue book I have written for use of the Lockpicking Boxes. Next to a couple agapite colored runebooks that are marked in various lockpicking trading places around Sosaria.

    You may download all the UO Assist Macros for Picking and Re-Locking all the boxes here: (.zip format | .rar format) --- These macros take up macro numbers 9 through 16, so make sure to backup your original UO Assist Macros before copying these."


    [​IMG]
    "Within the first floor of the the Old Sage's tower, you will find various runebooks he allows visitors and travelers to use. As well as his assorted collection of Dye Tubs. If you have come to read or find Treasure Map locations, head on up the spiral stairs to the second floor..."

    [​IMG]
    "Here, on the north wall are all the Trammel locations, based on the Treasure Hunters of Britannia Treasure Map Archive. As well, the Sage has organised a few of his many tomes for the Citizens of Sosaria to read at their leasure." ~Orvago, Druid of Mother Sosaria
