I've been doing stuff on minecraft for a while, I'm a big fan of the GOT tv show and intimatly familiar with the books even though I didn't read them so it feels logical, I've also been a builder on Ardacraft for a while now and I want to broaden my horizons a bit

Hey jean,

Thanks for the application, and glad to see your interest in joining the team!

Nice work with the apphouse, not seeing any issues there. I hope the exercise was a helpful introduction to our block pack and building style. For subsequent challenge builds, you'll be expected to build original houses of your own design, in the style of specific locations on our server. I recommend studying the elements of multiple houses in the style (furniture, timber frame patterns, rafter designs, etc.) and trying to synthesize them into an original creation. After each one I'll give some feedback.

For the first challenge, please make a medium-sized house in the style of /warp duskendale. Let me know if you've got any questions about anything!

alright, just to clarify I didn't give up on the app, I've been busy with schoolwork and haven't had so much time these days, will try to send you the screenshots by the end of next week though

Hey jean,

Awesome work on this house, I'd say you've gotten the Duskendale style down pretty well! The interior design seems solid, I particularly love the little raised bed area on the second floor.

I have a little bit of feedback, mostly pretty minor:

- For the chimney design, the stair block and tapering at the top make it feel a bit too crumbly (unless intentional). I'd recommend going with the full block base + wall block top design that's typical in Duskendale, as it's a bit more sturdy looking:

- For weathering like in this picture, I suggest using stair blocks most of the time, as using full wall block indents can be a bit too chunky. It might be possible to make some better designs by mixing stairs and walls now that we've migrated to 1.18 though (I haven't tested this yet myself).

- Use "half door" blocks for the sides of the cabinet here rather than shutters.

- When making interior stairs such as in this picture, it's typical to place another block (upside-down stairs, upside-down slabs, or hoppers) under the stair blocks in order to avoid the stairs only being connected at the corners.

For the next challenge build, please make a medium-sized house in the style of /warp ghosthill. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions about either the feedback or the ghost hill style. Good luck!
