    I would say I'm 95% done though there is still some interior decorating to finish up. When I started this house I had a rather odd goal and that was to challenge my typical way of home design. While I wouldn't say my typical homes are borg cubes, I have always chosen a single wall tile type and usually kept the floor tiles consistent throughout. I've also tended to have an open and very clean style. With this re-design I made myself vary the wall tiles from floor to floor as well as on the same floor. This new design is quite busy, and I'm wondering if I went too far in my quest to get out of my comfort zone. The roof garden is something I'm especially uncomfortable with and sat unfinished for months. Let me know what you think.

    EDITED: I have posted the interior pictures on the sticky thread for posting custom houses. Take a look. Here's the link to the thread if you want to see more.

    My family of elves wonder when can they move in :). I love the use of flowers and plants. Your roof top garden is perfect to me. I especially like how you have used the different vines on the pillars.

    Very nice Irulia looks really good. Nice work with mixing up the different wall tiles. Where u placed each type was perfectly done and flows well..

    Also just curious whats the name on the guildstone, if u don't mind?

    It's my old guild stone "Elves of Adhrael" This used to be the guild house, so I dedicated the roof to that guild and it's former members.

    The Glade

    The Glade... the Glade?.. Where is the Glade?
    how oft' have I heard that said

    It's so much more than a mark on a map
    or coordinates from a sextant, if you can manage that

    It's a mystical land of beauty beyond compare
    with the scent of sweet smelling flowers filling the air

    The sun shines brightly each and every day
    traveling across deep azure skies that never turn grey

    It never rains.. it never snows
    magically the forest grows

    The Ancient Ones strong and tall
    with outstretched limbs to protect us all

    It's helping hands and smiling faces
    truly one of the most wondrous places

    The lanterns burn throughout the night
    shining through the darkness as a beacon of light

    Helping Adhrael's chosen to find their way home
    no longer having to wander alone

    It's in my heart and on my mind
    forever til the end of time

    Wow, there's a name from the past. Stop in some time and say hello - I'll give you a personal tour of the house and the garden dedicated to the old elves of Adhrael.

    And technically it does snow...well, not so much as " it snows" so much as you start up the client one day and the snow is there because they turned it on *smiles*

    Surprised, honestly, if you remember me!

    I've been about here and there. I log in usually once a year on a trial to revisit former locations of friends. Sad, most homes no longer stand and the shard is dead.
