Hi JThompy,
Thanks for completing this application and for your patience while we found the time to take a look.

Nice work with replicating the application house, as I hope you can tell we try to put as much detail and signs of life as we can into our houses. Hopefully through this application process you'll see how this approach is carried across our different projects and styles.

You're off to a good start and I'm looking forward to seeing what you make next. For your first challenge build, please make a Low Class Farmer's house in the style of /warp hawthornetown and share screenshots of it in this thread (an easy way to do it is upload them imgur.com and share the link). Take note of commonalities between the houses (block mix, shape of roof, size of house, interior blocks, attic spaces, mezzanine platforms) and make a house that would fit into the Hawthorne town. It would be great if you could add a yard to it too.

If you haven't already, you can take a look at the Basic Building Guide for some more tips.

Please take your time to study the style in detail, and make sure to ask if you have any questions on the above feedback or the hawthornetown style.

Good luck!

Hello Cash,
I've completed the Farmer's House (in style of Hawthorne Town), it would accommodate 2-4 inhabitants, including children and adults. I was slightly cautions that I had made this too high class to be classified as a 'Low Class Farmer's House', but I've done my best.
(Any distortions on the screen shots is caused by my in-game FOV, if this in as issue i will resolve it for the future)

Hye Jthompy,
Thanks for completing this Hawthorne house. You've done a great job replicating the style and common features of houses in the area, and shown nice restraint with the choice of blocks for a low class house.

Only small point would be with the timber/daub blocks, when deciding on what kind of pattern to use, it looks good to frame open sections like doors/windows with daub blocks that have the wooden edge (since these indicate where the structural supports are).

You can also feel free to keep yards fairly square, with straight line walls. We used to have a tendency to create "bubble yards" which we've tried to avoid in recent times.

For your next challenge, please build a middle class professional house in the White Harbor style of /warp gullsgate (the general style in the sprawl outside the main city walls). Houses in large towns will usually have a profession on their on the ground floor and residence upstairs, take a look at the styleguide at the /warp oldstyleguides and the finished houses in the White Harbor area for inspiration, and give the house some kind of profession that would make sense in White Harbor (e.g. carpenter/cooper/blacksmith/boat builder, netmaker etc).

Note in the post which profession you go with.

Good luck!
