I'd orient/landscape around it so that the back can also be used as the front too.
Will we get to see a floor plan soon?

Also, my cropped country house now has the beginnings of its service wing, along with a cfe'd screen to shield visitors to the front door from having to look upon those below stairs.

Oh, but of course. I'll provide some floorplans asap. And the country home looks grand, @Fergus' Mind

I've avoided clipping roofs as much as I could
Also provided some quick lightning for a better view.

A month has passed, and I'm stuck.

Look at these bastards sitting there, waiting to be finished. Ugh.

It's so busy these days. I'm glad I at least have some school work I can post on my blog.

Queen Annes can be very fussy and demanding, hence Queen Anne. Although I've no idea how the Americans and Australians derived that style/name from the original Dutch/British Queen Anne style. Maybe it should have been called the Marie Antoinette style?
Perhaps we might get to see more of that Second Empire/Italiante style house we can spot in the far left corner?

Marie Antoinette didn't build anything like it to my knowledge ... and then I'm ignoring the fact that she didn't build a thing, but then neither did her husband. She at least had that farm, he probably never touched a shovel in his life.

I don't know what this is, but I like it blue, light and comfortable.







Lucky me it's CC free, so should be easy enough to upload.

It looks very interesting, but a tad confusing from the exterior point of view. I think I'm overwhelmed by the WW1 helmet-like roofs on the towers -which I do like, don't get me wrong- which shade the whole height of the wall, and it somehow bugs me that they're not..well.. proper tower-looking to me.

German humor isn't a laughing matter.

Yes, it's the new roof tools in ts4. Someone called them mushroom roofs, but ww1 helmets works too I can't just get on doing it like expected you know, that's not me At the same time I'm actually quite modest compared to some of crazy creations out there.

If it was a person I'd say it needed a haircut.
But other that the brodie helmets on the towers the exterior looks like a really cool 1890's hotel.

I'm pretty convinced being a Frence Queen is all about being fussy and demanding, and from what I've heard she was more interested about being a farmer, ergo NOT demanding

Haircut! priceless!
Looking like 1890's hotels sounds quite accurate. We would probably call that Swiss style or Dragonstyle if it was heavier in colors.

I see what you're getting at, but coming from a farming family I'd object to the notion of farming not being fussy or demanding, it's probably the fussiest and most demanding job I know.
Thanks to you the exterior of my stately home is just about finished, minus landscaping, and so I can now move on to the interior...



In the Piano Nobile it now has a Marble Hall, Blue Saloon, Ballroom, Gold Parlour/Dining Room, then down in the rusticated ground floor/cellars it has a "Roman Bath" and a Grotto, as well as the service rooms. I've also laid out the state apartments upstairs and the family suites across the courtyard in the Tudor wing. The Tudor wing has also been amended to give it a moat and gate lodge/portcullis, although looking at it now I think I may need to play about with the oriel window a bit more.

Yeah finishing a project is sometimes the hardest part. I have that whole bunch in my game with only finished shells, but I think that's due to the fact that I want to out-do myself with every new home I start. I'm in the process of setting my own standards too high, for whatever reason.
