Thanks! I got the idea from another house, actually, where the owner had created a second-story porch accessible by two stairs on either side. I thought it was such a great idea, but I didn't want to use up quite so much space. Hence, a single stair! :D

Here my first attempt to customize my houses.
Are both, the tower and the crypt.
Nothing original, seeing your awesome designs, hehe, but I did it myself, and Im happy with that.



I worked a little on the houses, so I updated the pic.

Bram,

I like how you used some of the optical illusion techniques to help make the 2 plots look like one big connected area. :)

The architecture of the museum is beautiful, and you've done a wonderful job of decorating it and setting up the displays :)

Thanks! Actually I just played around with the railing until I found one that didn't turn orange. Not sure how I could do a tutorial other than posting screenies with some arrows pointing to which ones I used. :) I'll play around with it later and put some notes up if you all want.

One other thing, someone told me they had seen my corner flower boxes before. They thought it was a creation from someone here on the boards. That's just a coincidence as I was going to setup tables with Mahjong and in the process I was stacking the games and happened to like the look of them. So, if that design idea belongs to someone else I am not so original afterall! :)

My lodge:

My latest project. Plot is 18 x 18 in Malas, near the pillar for Labrinth, Catskills shard. The little house out front is for storage and doubles as my smith shop.













A friend quit UO long, long ago and gave me the bless deed. It's been part of my bedroom decor for years now. lol

Great design and deco, Anne! I have always loved designs with separate houses/structures. I love the PBD on the bed!!:thumbup:

Heres one of my houses I had a few months ago, not too far away from Minax faction base. I used it for PvP.

Behind the waterfalls by the stairs is flooring, so you can go in and shoot from behind them. All the way at the east end, behind the waterfalls theres a tile of flooring missing so that you can drop down into the bottom floor if you get into trouble. Since you cant use doors or teleporters when your flagged. :lol:
Also at the top of the steps, it looks like theres just a wall but theres actually a stone door there to get into the 2nd floor.

I can't look at this thread anymore! Every time I look at the designs it makes me want to redecorate. Great work, everyone.

thanks for this picture. It actually gave me the inspiration I needed to solve some problems I was having with building a two-story library (from deco thread) and adding water, and adding steps and by starting with your exterior design I eventually got something that worked for me. So some 40+ hours later here is what I have. It came out pretty good and I will not be redoing the structure anytime soon, but I may play with the plants some more. I just went with what was already grown and available from my main house.

The house is on Atlantic at 105 33N, 50W on Malas and is open to the public if you wish to take a look. Like the original designer of the 2-story library that got me started on this project I very much want the Academic Bookcases to populate the backwall, but give the frequency of spawn of the new artifact it may be 10 years before I can even make one of them... Oh well... back to PvM I've had enough deco for awhile. Enjoy

Wow, Great house!!!!! I may have to redo my main house now as I really like the separate buildings and way you have laid this one out. Very nicely done!

Thanks for sharing,

Thank you Teeshy, nothing really new here, but it's nice to get feedback on my efforts. If I ever get enough gold stone to complete the third level I'll post that as well.

Happy gaming, and decorating.... I may do my main over again next, after I capture the images of course. ;-)

This is a house I came across on Europa. I don't know who built it and it's no longer there.
I thought I'd lost this picture but I just found it while clearing out some other stuff. I thought I'd post it for the benefit of anyone trying to build something similar.

I've finally mananged to create a believable basement (in my eyes, at least) in UO, at the sacrifice of a few tiles around the edge of the lot. The 'ground floor' is mostly built on the second level, aside from the fence and the first teleport gate.


All of the basement is built on the first level. I'm very happy with the way the sloping path and cave mouth turned out.


Space was tight, so I've had to settle with teleporters to get to the upper floors until I come up with a better redesign to allow for a ladder.


The roof is still under construction, and doesn't have anything to do with the rest of the house. I'm shooting for an Exodus dungeon / high-tech look, with cabinets, gems, black staffs, and sushi standing in for computers.

Oh that's pretty! Very cozy looking! On the inside on the north wall are those wooden chests turned so their sides show, underneath the goza mats?

Yea it works well for dressers desks and such.
I've got a few more i'd like to post as soon as I figure out how to make them smaller size without makeing the pic so tiny. takes up so much attachment space!

Don't add them as attachments, just upload them to photobucket or flickr and use the image tags around the links in the post. :)

My old Trades Center...

Can't find the finished deco but this was the basic one.





The room across from the bakery ended up being a nice office (trades office)


The floor above the office was a library with a hidden door behind the bookcase to the secret lab.

it's redo design time and I thought to use the sandstone walls as you have on the second & third floors. NOW I find I cannot locate them in the gump! Were they removed for an SA tileset? ARG!

its in the same category as the thick sandstone walls with the brown decoration at the top, its inside that category. Just keep flipping over they will come up.

Lovely wedding chapel :)

I'm currently re-re-re-building my house (I swear, I am terribly dissatisfied with housing lately), so before I tear down the current one I'll clean it up and post here, then post up the new one when it's done as well.

Edit: The Evolution of Fae's Housing!



The Villa from 2008 (I think!). This one got posted in its own thread at some point, maybe with more 'finished' deco, but here is the basic house anyway. I borrowed the 2-story bookcase idea and eventually that entire corner was filled with bookcases.

<In between these two was a T-shaped house that I didn't particularly love but which had a great gardening area and a huge pond. It was removed to make way for...>

The "classic" house (Winter '09-Spring '10):



Clearly, based on the classic L-shape, but with a GARDEN~! :D

And finally... drumroll, please!
(Photos to be added soon! - yeah, I know. What a letdown!)

Here's a follow-up to the house with a cave I posted earlier in the thread. It must have gone through more than a dozen different iterations before ending up as it is now, though I neglected to document most of the process. But I think this final design is the best among them, so I hope you all enjoy looking at it.

To start, an overview of the outside in the enhanced client.


The third floor, entered via ladder from the wooden door on the roof. Featuring a small foyer, dining room, bedroom, bathroom, large kitchen, and a still-unfinished elemental summoning chamber.
(As an aside, the dark period seems way too short in UO. It took me two in-game night cycles to get all the shots for these collages.)


Second floor. Library, office, unfinished lab space. The sludgefall's source is a specimen tank, the design of which I saw somewhere on these boards - sorry I don't recall its creator. There's some sort of tentacled eldritch horror taking up residence in the northeast corner.


First floor - the caves below. There's a house teleporter hidden beneath one of the arches, with a black goza mat and black carpet on top of it. It stays concealed even when teleporting, and the black parts don't superimpose themselves on the arches, either, as happened when I used cut cloth instead. As with my last house, everything you see in this image is on the first floor only.
(That bit of shadow at the crossroads is just something I missed while editing the picture.)


Finally, a full-sized look at the exterior in the classic client. Photobucket didn't care for the dimensions of the original, so I've divided it in two. Those two off-color squares are bits of carpet that cover the teleporters that connect the the third and fourth floor. I think the door in the mountainside turned out pretty well, but that whole area looks worse the closer it draws to the front.
