Very impressive.

I felt like I had a personal tour through this lovely home. I was almost expecting vampires who arose out of the coffins to inhabit the house at night. I'm glad I was surprised instead <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

This is absolutely fantastic. I really like how you made the altar in front of the window, which still gives off the rays! it's awesome! Well done!

Very nice.

I like the swords in the altar, seems so fitting yet I've never seen it. Also, I like the shelves with urns, very cool idea.
