Most expensive 2+1 bedroom home I've built yet? It's priced at 234K already and the garden isn't done yet. I personally love how the pond has turned out.

The garden is being made up on the go, but I'm trying not to make it look cramped and unnatural. There's a Jewel making thing in the shed.

I did a little research and found those are the plans for 'Hill Grove'. Sadly it no longer stands today, but I like how you took the floor plan and gave it an exterior very much in your style rather than the original, were you aware of what the original looked like before you started building?

Wow! It looks amazing! The landscaping you're putting in is incredible, I can't wait to see it when it's finished!
You must wish your own home had landscaping like that?

Hill Grove looked rather European than American. Should've preserved it.

It would be cool, but a lot of work I'd rather not do. There's enough already

Wow! It's so evocative, I can feel the humidity already.
Once again your landscaping skills never cease to amaze.

Now that Alice Court is finished and uploaded it's freed up space for something else to land and grow in its place... I started it a few weeks ago on a smaller lot, but it soon needed more space to grow, externally it's a mix of things I saw on the Royal Institute of British Architect's Modernist Architecture Movement photo gallery, internally it's the "masterpiece of modern design", Eltham Palace, minus the medieval parts. There's also a bit of an Asian influence in there too. It's all a bit alien to me, but I'll go with it and see where I end up.

First thought that came to my mind as well. Why would someone tear down something like that?

Wow, it's gorgeous, I love it's shape and warmth.

Talking of warmth...


I've been rather inspired recently by the house on the hill in 'The Dressmaker'.

Hallo, long time no see, or whatever it's called. Perhaps you don't have that saying in English?

I have finally finished my Wentworth Palace. I have made a video, just in need of a few minor adjustments. The CC list has been prepared on TSR and coverart is finished. I just need one good shot of the swimmingpool and the floorplan pictures has been prepared.





What do you think about the labels on all these rooms? I have several of the same kind, and what's the meaning of all the different livingrooms? I also have quite a few utility, larder etc. The house has 2 parts if you remember. The old Jacobean part of the house, and the newer more baroque part.

Click below for the floorplan pictures:

Haha, yep "long time no see" is how the saying goes.

Oh my, it's so big and gorgeous, any chance we'll get to see a picture of the smaller Jacobean front?

As for room names;
Parlour - Formal reception room designated for recieving guests for a chat/talking (name derives from old french word Parler meaning "to speak") Often contains a table and chairs.
Drawing Room - Shortened from Withdrawing Room, a room for the household to withdraw from formalities and guests.
Morning Room - An east-facing room designated for use in mornings, often as a breakfast/morning tea room. Often located within or off of a bedroom suite.
Saloon - A large formal reception room, often located at the centre of a house by an entrance to designed to impress but also often designated for a singular purpose.
Anteroom - A smaller formal room used as a waiting room that leads into a much larger formal room such as a Saloon, Parlour or Gallery.
Sitting Room - Eventually known as a Living Room, the sitting room served a similar purpose to a Drawing Room or Morning Room with the intention of it being a more private room.
I hope that helps/clears things up? Also, I've just noticed that on the caption of the overview of the first floor you put "1'st Floor" instead of "1st Floor". A pesky apostrophe seems to have snuck in there.

Meanwhile I've now pretty much finished the interior of my modern house and have turned my attention back to the supporting columns underneath. At first I was keen to replace the IP columns, but having played about with replacements made of walls I think I'll stick with the columns, unless I find a better solution.



And I've finally figures out what to do with that weird curved recess either side of the tower, they make great sheltered roof terraces.



Next stop, landscaping...
