Apologies for taking so long to get back to this.

The lodge seems like a very ornate construction for a hunting lodge, and without much in the way of utilities like kennels or a dovecote/rabbit hutches to increase game numbers for sport. I'm also not such a fan of the double roof on a smaller structure. Maybe if the complex were expanded more horizontally it would work better?

Could you explain a little more about what you mean by overly ornate?

By ornate I'm referring to the tiled perimeter wall, and corner tower and tower of the main building for a hunting lodge, rather than a holdfast. Imo having more evidence that it is not a holdfast but a hunting lodge would be good. Would it be helpful if I left feedback in the form of melons on the test, Opaco and Homie?

I built a new test on my plot. Scaled back what you labeled as ornate. Added a lot more hunting infastructure. Though I would challenge the idea that there is a significant distinction between a hunting lodge and a holdfast Every medieval jagdschloss I found was built as a castle. Lmk if I have that mistaken though.

Perhaps looking at some of the hunting lodges of Henry VIII Tudor might be good for things that aren't very holdfasty? The English king was a prolific builder of them and a number survive, from large ones like Great Fosters to small structures that weren't much more than a covered bench area on stilts (completely enclosed under the reign of Elizabeth I Tudor).
Some larger ones:

Homie, what are you intending for the hunting lodge?

Those are good examples, but I don't feel they, or the tudor style on general, would adapt well to the project. That's why I mostly focused on looking at central european examples. I think it would ultimately be up to what homie is looking for though.

Also I believe jagdschloss stern was built in the 18th century

I definitely get where you're coming from, I was just talking about how all the other bolling builds have a more fortified nature, like the septry. Either way I didn't even like my first test that much anyway lmao. Also sorry about pasting it, I was told it would be alright.

Here's my new test btw:


I'm working on another test that will look more like a manse if you think this still looks too much like a holdfast

I think its up to homie now but I love this second one, particularly the detailing of the roof and how the wooden extensions are done. Can't wait to have a look at the yard too. Really has more of that compound feel to it.
