I would like to build a small detailed town (with a friend), with nice terrain around it.

Hey Sm0,
Thanks for applying I can see you put a lot of thought and detail into this house.
There's a lot of really nice elements, you've obviously explored the breadth of our custom blocks.

It'll help on future builds to know there's a few blocks we try not to use too much these days:
- Trap doors are best just used as trap doors, since they can be toggled by default it's better to just use wooden slabs/carpet for shelves or half doors.
- Signs aren't really used for furniture/house exteriors, half doors will usually be fine instead.
- Probably an innocent mix up on your part, but you've actually used variants of stone rock blocks for the roof. Use thatch instead of the westerlands terrain and wooden planks instead of the stormlands terrain.
- We also try not to use the full wooden logs too much as they look a little bulky/don't allow for much variety.
- Bookshelves are also generally only used in rich high class houses, since books/paper was expensive and very few poor people could read.

The bed you added on the top floor is a fun design, but maybe a little elaborate, we've got quite a few bed varieties that will generally do the job.

It's also best to just one color of timber daub, just the yellow or brown would be fine here.

Sorry that might seem like a lot of feedback, but it's a good sign you've put this effort into the house, and you'll be great when you're familiar with our building styles.

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. 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.

Take a look at the Applicant Building Guide for some more tips, they'll help a lot.
Basic Building Guide for Applicants | WesterosCraft

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!
