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

    Staffdiner (roof)

  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, 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?

    Sounds good Vlad, but which wall should I tear down? the little walls? or the window wall?

    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.

    This may mean I've become a true "Minimalist" at last.

    With stone crafting (assuming you like the stone look) you can build about any size lot to 4 stories or so. So unless you want a small house it's not such a big deal anymore.

    Hello everybody,

    here Comes a new 9x14-project on Drachenfels: I always wanted a beach house on a remote Island - and this is what I made:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It has been a work of 3-4 hours and it´s not ready yet. The problem is, that on Drachenfels most deco items or resources are not easily available, as people do not tend their vendors and 90 % of the population is engaged in Shadowguard, Champs, PvP or other Monster Encounters. So it takes time to get even simple furniture, barrels... Furthermore, I need ropes and fishing nets. And I have to wait another 10 month for my next vet reward choices (Lighthouse?). But I will probably use the rewards for my Harbour on Siege...

    [​IMG]

    Note: The houses look far better in original as you cannot see all the deco I added - this bird´s perspecitve (Zoom) in EC fades out 90 % of the items :-(

    Best wishes!

    ...and of course I will have to get those Ararat Stealables... But this is a Project for a longer time period. What I am thinking about: On Drachenfels most parts of the beach on Bald Island (the Island above) cannot be used for housing as there are remnants of a house that has been burnt down many years ago.

    One tiny spot might be usable. Does anybody have an overview about ALL housing locations of Bald Island?

    Alzheimer Island on Drachenfels. Took me a while to get this. Different to other shards, there is only one housing spot.
