    A shop, rather than a home, but maybe useful for the small storage ideas:

  3. We have alway wanted the island at Justice falls, but could never seem to catch the people that had it, and we missed the Malas invasion [land rush] by a day, so missed the chance to get that one island there.

    But a few years later the owner of the house on Malas Island was leaving Sonoma and the house was bought for 20 million. We like the house as it was and no changes were made after we got it.

    roof top where we store our stuff as well as make bandaids grow orange leaf plants.

    3rd floor part of the curse arty museum and office.

    [​IMG]

    2nd floor main area for the curse arty museum, special thanks to Wolfee and others that helped to get them all during the Magincia Invasion/burning.

    [​IMG]

    1st floor, where most of the vendors are set up as well as storage in the back room, small set of runes for events are also kept there on the stone table and medal box. Wood Box in front of 1st tables is a complete set of Trammel Treasure rune.

    [​IMG]

    all the vendors here are set up to show all the items they may have on them. Had to add extra vendors to hold the rings and bracelets here. There are days I wish that person that does the Luna/Zento web site would visit us on Sonoma.

    [​IMG]

    So if you on Sonoma, drop in if you can and look around! There gray color rune books are empty, only those colored or normal rune books have runes to travel in them. As we get more rune during the travel around Sonoma we put them in the gray books

    pac house2.jpg Until I found an 18x18 space on my alt's shard I found this config worked well. The first level is hidden behind the waterfall and walls so it utilizes almost the entire plot inside

    Where are the really small homes? All these houses are at least medium-sized. A 7x7 to 9x9 is what I call a small home. Try to build a interesting and well-decorated 8x8 house! It really is a challenge!

    Mine is 9 x 10, but the 'living areas' are less if you discount the balcony. I believe it could be adapted to a smaller footprint.

    Risso your houses are very cute. :)

    This is a house from Lake Austin in Skara Brae a few years ago. I have no idea who owned it, but I saved images of it because I liked it.

    Risso, I'm about to buy an 8x12 beside my 18x18 to turn it into a 'guest house', would it be alright if I used some of your design?

    I've posted this before, but since there is an actual thread devoted to little houses, I'll put it in here. I designed this for someone who had a tiny plot inside the Luna walls, and favored a classic house style. This is the basic layout on Test Center:

    [​IMG]

    This is the actual house on the Luna lot...I adjusted it, turning the actual house, due to the neighboring houses obscuring it. The ladder was just too cute a part of the design to give up, but because this was built on Siege, there had to be security. This was handled by a hidden teleporter under the plant by the house sign, which leads inside the enclosed building. The front door of the house is set to owner access, as is the teleporter.

    My friend, Chenonceau, made this in the Zento area a couple of years ago. It had some cute details in terms of deco inside, which you can't see in the pic...unfortunately this is the only surviving screenie, which I took because my other friend's head was poking through the floor below (gotta love UO graphic quirks :D)

    I am trying to make my house like Risso's however mine is a 7x7 not 7x8 so I had to take away a piece of the porch, it looks good however, I cannot get the flowers to stay locked down on the second floor infront of the window.

    The problem is I have to knock down a wall to place the flowers, i lock them down then rebuild the wall and the flowers end up in moving crate, anyone have any ideas?

    Just returned to the game, lost my secondary accounts to uo and this one small luna house (my last work), I didn't get enough pictures of it before I left but in memory of it I'm posting it up. Hopefully I'm back to stay this time and start on another design ... so much to catch on :D

    Enjoy!

    Here is my design. I don't know what to do with decor. I need help on the decor. If there is anyone in Sonoma that can take on the challenge, let me know.

    Thanks!

    I put this one up last week. There are a few minor errors to the design, but I generally like it. Something about having a small courtyard in front of a house that really makes it feel like a French Farmstead to me.

    I live between Blackthorn Castle and the Brit Cemetery, so all of the Halloween spawn finds it way to my house. I'm set to public, so people generally like to draw them over here to take care of in safety. I should really put up some shops with how many visitors I seem to get. Heh.

    Ok, guys! I always loved the Jungle south of Trinsic - from my first years of UO til now. I left it, since I moved around in Sosaria to build different homes. On my homeshard I have a house in Luna and a castle near the vesper crossroads. But when I found a lovely free spot at the jungle pond on ATL, I could not resist and re-activated one account. So, here we are at the moment (it´s not ready, many deco items are missing). I wish I could really live there...

    I think this plot is a 7x8. With the 60% storage increase, it has 1067 max secure storage, 533 max lockdowns, and 20 max vendor count.

    Just started playing again about a week ago, and wanted to contribute my small, work-in-progress house. C:
    It's a 7x7, north of Zento on ATL, just off the road to the desert. Still need to deco it up quite a bit, but wanted to contribute the "bones" of my scribe temple thus far. Will update once I get it sussed out some more :p
