thanks for applying!
Your house looks nice - although a bit too high fantasy maybe. To be more specific, the proportions of the house don't exactly match our style that's grounded in realism. Other than that, it's a really cute house. Now onto the nitpicking.
- The stone mix of the walls seems a bit too random. We call this a gradient. It tends to go from darker to lighter blocks in different patterns, with little contrast between the blocks that touch. Good examples of the gradient you chose can be found at /warp Gaunt or /warp Wickenden.
- Another thing that might be too unrealistic are the big glass windows. They cover up a lot of the house's facade. Due to the size of this specific house, I'd opt for smaller windows.
- Not a critique, but I really like that you included timber framed blocks in the structure next to the house
- Your house seems to be high-class, so I'll feedback it as such. The choice of luxurious items seems fine, although the owner might not own that many books. Also, we don't really use brewing stands for decoration.
- The main problem I can see is that there is no staircase, but a ladder. Remember, we're based on realism and mostly medieval architecture, so make sure to have the most important things secured first - the stairs, the fireplaces, etc.
- We don't really use the tree log block anymore due to its chunky appearance. A simple ceiling design using stairs and slabs will be just fine.
- All other minor problems, such as single hopper block tables, chunky wood furniture etc., can be polished by exploring some of our most recent town builds, such as Duskendale and Maidenpool. Definitely take inspiration for different furniture and interior designs from there.
For your first challenge, please build a house in the style of /warp Gaunt. Pick the house owner's profession (you can choose one that's already represented in the project, but you can also choose one that'd make sense for the rural medieval area that is Gaunt) and make sure to pay attention to the designs and techniques used in the project! Don't be afraid of getting heavily inspired by some of the houses. As you can see, most of them are just slight variations of eachother. We're not asking you to invent a new style, only to replicate an existing one.
