I have created a mansion on my server, which will be available as a vanilla server with a few mods and plugins, mostly to prevent greifing. PvP will be allowed, but only in specific areas. The server uses the Steve's Carts 2 Mod. Anyways, for the real stuff. The mansion sits on its own island however, it has natural bridges to more islands. I plan to use the islands for a player village. I thought it would be cool to share the mansion, which I call SkyManor, for my username Skyman2400. I designed it myself, but a few things I used the designs of a few other players. Although the pics are from creative mode, the house was built in survival mode. A few items like heads were taken from creative mode, and a few chiseled stone bricks for a fountain, but I think you can forgive me.
This is SM, with work being done on the 2nd floor.
This is SM, with the completion of the roof and attic underway.
A finished view of Sky Manor, with paths and perimeter fence in place. Credit to Pualsoresjr for the perimeter fence design, as seen in his Survive and Thrive tutorials.
A view of the finished building at dusk.
Here's a more aerial view of SM at night.
Upon entrance to SM is the SkyFountain. This is where I got the chiseled stone bricks from.
Time to head inside. This is the kitchen, complete with 4 furnaces, a clock, chest, crafting table, brick bar, and flower pots (to resemble cups).
Here is the living room, which is the first thing visible when entering the building. 2 sofas and 2 chairs with a cyan, green, and blue carpet pattern in the center.
Taking advantage if space, I made a guest bedroom under the staircase to the 2nd floor. Small, but the Skeleton Skull (again from creative mode) may make it a tad more appealing. Complete with bed and chest, for overnight stays.
Here is the staircase leading to the 2nd floor. Not much to say about this. Just that it is cooler than plain ladders.
The view from the top of the stairs, containing the library, my bedroom, balcony, and entrance to the attic.
Here we have the closed entrance to the library, and a partial view of my bedroom. The entrance to the library can be opened with the flick of a lever (Lower left of the image).
Here's the library entrance with the door open.
My bedroom, complete with 3 color area rug and double bed. Not much more to it. Out of the corner you can see the sectional sofa for further relaxation.
The doors open to my balcony. A nice place to go after getting up. The framed creeper heads are from creative mode. They are the last imported items from creative.
A view from the balcony.
The library, small, but complete. I prefer my mid day naps in there, for the solitude and peace.
The attic, or storage room. This is where all that extra stuff goes. If more guests are staying, there is room for a few extra beds.
Here's one final view of SkyManor. When the server is ready to be launched publicly, I will post a reply. I do plan to make a few adjustments, such as a fireplace for the harsh winters.
Thankyou. The Sky comes in for my mc username, Skyman2400. It took a while to plan, the outside and all. Finishing off the roof was a bit of a challenge, but I eventually got it to look nice. Now, to build the town.
