No one is design gifted. I think it's more some of us love doing stuff like this (and legos lol) and simply won't quit till we get what we want. Some of the decorating tricks are simply crazy. I wonder how they ever thought to do some of the crazy stuff that works. Putting a ladder on the front steps of a castle is nuts the way it's done. How did anyone ever come up with that?so thought id share what im doing.
im not as design gifted as a lot of the people i see in here doing stuff.
my 3 things im gonna do / start with are practical changes.
step 1 im going to make a mezzanine level on the back side of the main area that is equal to the 2nd floor.
on this mezzanine im going to put my garden shed.
because while i love the look of it in my crowded castles i cant find places to put them.
so i added this mezzanine level yesterday and my garden shed will go on it as it was just dead wasted space.
(it will go where my guy is standing)
step 2 im going to add a mezzanine to in front of the main area on the 2nd level - much the same as the one for the garden shed - this will be for my light tower which is currently in that spot but on the ground.
this will again use up dead wasted space and give me that area back on the ground level to use for more clutter.
this im going to work on next day or too.
step 3 - and this is still in the development phase (its in my mind but havnt experimented with it yet) is i have about 200 manikins with suits on and im kinda thinking that i should be able to put them up in a kind of 'garage wall' on the West and North walls.
the above 3 steps im going to do on both my castles.
my keep ive got some ideas to move stuff off the roof out onto mezzanine's as well - im thinking the garden shed again and the lighthouse and maybe even the garden beds.
but im gonna leave this until i get the castles squared away.
so nothing massive on my end, just some practical tweaks.
