I've never really been good at building houses-- I usually just end up sticking with my dirt hut. :P

So this time I decided to put some effort in and make something nice. May I present to you: Chateau Steelfeathers.

(No plans or references were used in the building of this house. ^^)

NOTE: The texture pack is one that I've been working on. It's not available for download yet.

I wouldn't take it personally. It's really hard to predict why an awesome post like this waits a few hours (maybe days) before people post about how awesome it is, even if people meant to days ago (I'm particularly guilty of this, gotta stop perusing the forum from work). Furthermore, MCF has been a little dodgey for me this afternoon, not helping things.

That said, love the house (especially the watchtower at the top). It's very neat looking, like if one were to film a machinima that would be an excellent set piece (assuming the inside works for Fraps filming etc.). Red wool carpeting almost always is classy  :RFlower: :Diamond: :Diamond: :Diamond: :RFlower:

Do you mean texturepack? It's one I'm working on at the moment. Not quite finished yet. :P


@Everyone else: Thanks guys! After two days languishing without comments I was beginning to think that my house wasn't 'epic' enough to get attention. It's not a castle, I know, but then castles are overrated anyway. :D

I'm a sucker for the victorian architecture. Although there are distinct differences between American and British victorian buildings.
Noteably the wooden build of the American design. It's too damned cold over here in Blighty to have a house made from wood, even if it does look fancy :)

Nice Build Miss Feathers :)

It looks awesome :D

With the texture pack your making, I'd change the Chest a bit. It doesnt suit the wooden planks you already have, and the black border around themcontrasts too much from the wood

Only critism, other than that it should be bigger ;3

I'd love to see more

Thanks,
Luke

Haha, sorry, it's going to take a while before I can release it. Glad you're interested, though. :D

It's looking good. Nice idea for a house, I especially like how the 'observation' tower is quite subtle and contributes to the overall appearance of the house, might do something similar on some of the houses in my own world.
