    Great design and deco, Anne! I have always loved designs with separate houses/structures. I love the PBD on the bed!!:thumbup:

    Heres one of my houses I had a few months ago, not too far away from Minax faction base. I used it for PvP.

    Behind the waterfalls by the stairs is flooring, so you can go in and shoot from behind them. All the way at the east end, behind the waterfalls theres a tile of flooring missing so that you can drop down into the bottom floor if you get into trouble. Since you cant use doors or teleporters when your flagged. :lol:
    Also at the top of the steps, it looks like theres just a wall but theres actually a stone door there to get into the 2nd floor.

  7. I can't look at this thread anymore! Every time I look at the designs it makes me want to redecorate. Great work, everyone.

    thanks for this picture. It actually gave me the inspiration I needed to solve some problems I was having with building a two-story library (from deco thread) and adding water, and adding steps and by starting with your exterior design I eventually got something that worked for me. So some 40+ hours later here is what I have. It came out pretty good and I will not be redoing the structure anytime soon, but I may play with the plants some more. I just went with what was already grown and available from my main house.

    The house is on Atlantic at 105 33N, 50W on Malas and is open to the public if you wish to take a look. Like the original designer of the 2-story library that got me started on this project I very much want the Academic Bookcases to populate the backwall, but give the frequency of spawn of the new artifact it may be 10 years before I can even make one of them... Oh well... back to PvM I've had enough deco for awhile. Enjoy

    Thank you Teeshy, nothing really new here, but it's nice to get feedback on my efforts. If I ever get enough gold stone to complete the third level I'll post that as well.

    Happy gaming, and decorating.... I may do my main over again next, after I capture the images of course. ;-)

    This is a house I came across on Europa. I don't know who built it and it's no longer there.
    I thought I'd lost this picture but I just found it while clearing out some other stuff. I thought I'd post it for the benefit of anyone trying to build something similar.

    Oh that's pretty! Very cozy looking! On the inside on the north wall are those wooden chests turned so their sides show, underneath the goza mats?

    Don't add them as attachments, just upload them to photobucket or flickr and use the image tags around the links in the post. :)

    it's redo design time and I thought to use the sandstone walls as you have on the second & third floors. NOW I find I cannot locate them in the gump! Were they removed for an SA tileset? ARG!

    its in the same category as the thick sandstone walls with the brown decoration at the top, its inside that category. Just keep flipping over they will come up.

    Lovely wedding chapel :)

    I'm currently re-re-re-building my house (I swear, I am terribly dissatisfied with housing lately), so before I tear down the current one I'll clean it up and post here, then post up the new one when it's done as well.

    Edit: The Evolution of Fae's Housing!

    The Villa from 2008 (I think!). This one got posted in its own thread at some point, maybe with more 'finished' deco, but here is the basic house anyway. I borrowed the 2-story bookcase idea and eventually that entire corner was filled with bookcases.

    <In between these two was a T-shaped house that I didn't particularly love but which had a great gardening area and a huge pond. It was removed to make way for...>

    The "classic" house (Winter '09-Spring '10):
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Clearly, based on the classic L-shape, but with a GARDEN~! :D

    And finally... drumroll, please!
    (Photos to be added soon! - yeah, I know. What a letdown!)

    This is an outside view of one of my houses. It would be hard to explain everything that I like about this house, but I’ll point a few out. I designed the steps to seem more like a hill rather than steps (In the CC you seem to bounce up and down as if you were climbing over bolders or irregular steps). I also tried to copy my first small house that I had in game at the top of the hill (a 7x7 wood & plaster).

    [​IMG]
    http://i386.photobucket.com/albums/oo305/Ni-bucket/HouseonaHillNightFull.jpg

    This pic is level 3. Not much new. Just the inside of the small house on the hill and an underground spider lair (the spider webs show through the ceiling so that I get double the deco from them).

    [​IMG]
    http://i386.photobucket.com/albums/oo305/Ni-bucket/HouseonaHillNightFull3.jpg

    The second level is a run down living quarters that takes advantage of the Heritage items that I had wanted. There is also a room with an alchemist that appears to have had a rather ill blackrock accident/explosion (I placed the skeleton and body parts in a way to make it look like the meat still held to some of the body’s appendages with the core flesh having been completely obliterated).

    [​IMG]
    http://i386.photobucket.com/albums/oo305/Ni-bucket/HouseonaHillNightFull2.jpg

    The bottom level seems to be rather... morbid... and quite fun to build/deco. This little torture chamber comes complete with an iron maiden, a guillotine (that appears to have been used), a stretching table, multiple jail cells, and a demon summoning room (protectively runed off, though one unlucky soul seemed to have not stayed completely outside of the runes), and a burial/coffin room.

    [​IMG]
    http://i386.photobucket.com/albums/oo305/Ni-bucket/HouseonaHillNightFull1.jpg

    I chose to take night pics to add to the ambiance and to display certain lighting effects.

    Enjoy!

    My fisher on Siege wanted a fishing shack, but my crafter didn't want to give up her shop. Solution, move the shop to a bigger plot, add the fishing shack and a small garden.

    I liked it so much I found a nice spot by the sea and did something similar for my Europa fisherman

    First of all, THANK YOU to all who use this forum. So many tips and tricks I've learned over the years! I'm about to strip out my home on Baja (transferring to Atlantic), so I thought I'd post pics of my house before it goes bare bones.

    Here is my home, Yester's Eve:
    [​IMG]
    Ignore the tiny post at the front of the house, it used to have a small chest that made it look like a mailbox, but I recently moved it and can't figure out how I made it work 3 years ago ;)

    First floor: Gardening area, Treasure room, Smithy/tinker area and stables:
    [​IMG]


    Second floor: Kitchen, Living room, and patio:
    [​IMG]


    Third floor: Bedroom, bathroom, sewing area, and second patio:
    [​IMG]



    My old home, 'Morrow's Eve:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Which eventually turned into this, after some wonderful feedback from this forum:
    [​IMG]

    Can't wait for IDOCs to start back up on Atlantic--I'm currently squeezing into a 7x8 and let me tell you, it's a struggle! :)

So when anyone comes from his house to mine or vice versa they have to go through the out house =P I live here when I am not at the falling waters fortress. =) which you can catch me there alot.

    I love your curvy walls Potgut! I've never had much success in customizing with the brown stone walls. They always end up looking too clunky and square to me. However, you've most definitely reminded me that there are funky shaped walls for these.

    I do have a question though...
    In your 1st floor do you have horse dung on pedestals?? I wish I could see what the signs said. I'm assuming it's meant to be ashes or something close to that?

    Thanks LadyElizabeth for your compliments. Those what look like horse dung on the first floor are actually Deer Droppings and Yamandon Dung. They were left unlocked by an EM during the zoo construction event about 6 years ago (2006) at the Meer Village Zoo in Ilshenar (A zoo only in Pacific) , the signs breif this info.

    Trailer on blocks complete with custom designed outhouse!

    redneckretreat.jpg

    Here is my house on Siege. I designed it for a contest but unfortunately no one else entered so the contest was cancelled. Here is the original thread. The house is nothing fancy but I like it.

    Hello everybody!

    I always loved this thread but I was to shy to post my own 18x18 design because I thought it would look far too crappy... However, I spent some time re-designing it and now I think I can show it...

    Hope you like it: It´s my Trammel-Cottage on Marble Island, Drachenfels...

    Ha! I haven't been to my crafter's house in quite a while....didn't know I had you as a neighbor!! It's nice to see someone was able to squeeze something into that tiny plot. It's been empty for far too long.

    Edited to add after logging in and looking: And it's empty again!! Drat.

    This is a custom "keep" I built on Yamato a few months ago that is shared with guildmates. Still slowly working on decorating it.
