    I designed this house in preperation for my move I'm about to make in a few days. I based it on the design of another house that was posted here, but I shrunk it down to a 18x13 size. The new location is SUPER awesome and I really couldn't have found a better spot (though I wouldn't mind it being just a touch bigger... oh well).

    The house design is finished, just filling it up now!

    House.jpg
    The house is finished! I have my tower all squared away and my staircase really opened the layout up a good bit. I can't sit on those chairs, but it's the look that's important to me I always thought.

    House1.jpg
    The basement area has my crafting station and I will be putting more soulstones in soon. The big room, however, is going to be converted into a shrine to the Virtues and I'm going to be adding a lot to it in the future. I may also put my EM earned items here... not 100% sure.

    House2.jpg
    I had a bit of hassle with this pair of rooms, I will be adding more to this one I think... The salon isn't too bad though.

    House3.jpg

    This is my study, maproom and sleeping quarters. I still need to add more scrolls to the scroll shelf there, but the important ones are there.

    This is my full house. It is almost completely finished, I just need to wait for the next patch to go through so I can set up my Ankh and then I am going to dress the basement up as sort of a shrine to the virtues.

    I really do love this house.

    I just wanted to comment that this thread (and it's predecessors) has always been my favorite and most read on Stratics. It's always inspiring and makes we want to redesign my house (again). My current design has never made me happy (it was completed a year ago) so maybe it's time to flatten the lot and start over. Who knows. *laughs* Thanks for the GREAT ideas!

    Hello all,

    I am back one more time with my 2nd house on Pacific. I recently sold my Fel Keep on my alternate account and found a lot in Malas right outside of Luna's West Gate and put this house up this past week. It is mostly for storage but I will eventually be putting up some vendors up here as well.

    Outside:
    I mainly constructed and decorated it in the style of a bed and breakfast/Inn. With a garden on the southeast corner. (I took the fountain and poppies from my other house to put here as it seemed a better fit).
    Outside.jpg

    First Floor:
    The shop facing east towards the city will eventually have vendors on the porch for adventurers as they come out of the city. Storage and stables on the west side.
    1st Floor.jpg

    Second Floor:
    The dining/socializing/kitchen area (with barrels of booze available). Also an area on the deck with some chairs for quiet conversation and a view of the city.
    2nd Floor.jpg

    Third Floor:
    The sleeping area with a deluxe room for well-paying customers.
    3rd Floor.jpg

    Please feel free to come and take a look around.

    I placed a 15x15 plot on Hokuto a few weeks ago and decided I wanted to try to build it as a combination house/lighthouse. Below is how it looks at the moment.

    I'm still undecided on whether or not to claim a lighthouse vet reward or to do something else to create a light source on the 4th floor. I also haven't done a whole lot yet with decorating it. Still have to grow some plain plants for decorating and the guildmate who is using the lighthouse room on the 1st floor still needs to decorate his space.

    Well, I'm still undecided on claiming a lighthouse vet reward on that shard and haven't figured out an alternative for a light source. But I did build another lighthouse on a different shard! I haven't spent much time decorating it yet and don't know long the house will stay there until I decide I need one on a different shard. But here is what it looks like for now. It needs some nice plants for all the planter boxes!

    And here is what the inside looks like at the moment:

    Nice work, Tina... I'd love to know if you can actually put a Lighthouse on the top of your existing 3 story tower in the initial pic.... That would look fantastic!

    Full pics of my elf house.

    As you scroll through all the pictures take notice of how few storage chests I have displayed. The house is actually at it's limit but I like to incorporate storage into the rooms rather than just having stacks of chests on display. There are, however, a few spots that do have a lot of storage chests stacked out of view. See if you can figure out where!

    Here's the full outside view. I used gozas and the grass tiles to create a rooftop and effectively make a fifth floor which is accessible thanks to the veteran reward transporter tiles. The two runebooks have runes to each former guild members Yew trees (long story but basically a roleplaying event that every member had to go through).


    [​IMG]



    1st floor - garden, storage and forge.

    The garden used to be a much bigger , but I found the outside was already so busy that I tried to keep the interior very simple. I'm still not happy with the "forge" area and will change it out later when I figure out what to do. The trees on the right were a last minute addition as the pathway into the forge was too empty, and I love the addon trees so much that I wanted to use them as much as possible.

    [​IMG]

    2nd floor - tailor shop

    One of my very first homes on Catskills was a small 7x7 tailor shop. Tailoring was always my craft of choice (at one point I had two legendary tailors and 3 GM tailors). As such I decided to devote this entire floor to tailoring and related crafts. The right side room is where I keep all my dye supplies, and the bottom left corner is the change room and fitting area.

    [​IMG]

    3rd floor - library

    I bought a lot of those "full book cases" from the EA store, but they looked out of place so I moved my library to a different house and kept just enough of the elven book cases to make this a library.

    [​IMG]

    4th floor - bedroom

    I have never really bothered with bedrooms in homes before as I've just never had the space, but as my guild is gone, I thought it was time for a cozy room for my main character.

    [​IMG]

    Rooftop - memorial garden to my old guild - the Elves of Adhrael.

    The two runebooks on pedestals are for runes specific to guild related events with a chest filled with guild related items, and of course, the old guildstone - proudly displayed.

    nevermind, the pictures won't upload correctly. Hit and miss as to which ones show up. Maybe I'll try again later.

    I posted the bathhouse here in May. With the addition of non-acoholic beverages I've added a rooftop cafe (accessed by teleporter behind reception desk at the main entrance).

    I've recently returned to UO and was able to reactivate an old account. Fortunately, that meant I had a few million in the bank to spend. This is my first crack at building a fully customized house. Let me know what you think!

    Three more houses from North Harbor Village on Atlantic: Vandevicsny Farm, North Harbor Healer, and the Stitches & Britches Tailor Shop / Adventurer's Guild / Butcher. The theme of the town is to be relatively "Britannian" and I tend to use minimalist designs that allow my partner-in-crime (the true deco whiz between the two of us) to really show off her skills and experiment. We're also pretty recent returns so we're not aware of a lot of the newer design tricks and techniques that may have came about in the 7 years we were gone from the game. The awkwardly placed vendors are temporary and there is usually a peach tree and a pile of logs where they are on the farm.
