<p>Amazing! I love your house! You did a wonderful job of merging the rustic look of the outside with the updated look of the inside. It looks so cozy...I may have to build me a boat and leave my stronghold to visit your little house.</p>

<p>Wonderful job!  That house is just amazing.  <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

holy load time, batman... that must have been a bear with loading layouts the cedar stools as a bench looks really good the backdoor with the laundry right there is just like a home i almost moved into <img src="/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> the nook bed is just perfect. and it's nice to see the bone desk get love, even though it's not all polished the shelving in the bathroom is such a great, realistic use of space very beautiful home, so light and airy. thank you for sharing

<p>That bridge is wonderful and the "emblem" over the doors is a great touch!  Love the built in bed.  I can tell a lot of thought and planning went into the layout and design - nicely done!</p>

<p>I wouldn't call it planning, it was more like a succession of trials and errors... I just might be one of the less organized girls on the planet, and that reminds me, I also wanted to share screenshots of the construction, to encourage people like me, because there were a lot of moments where I thought I'd never get past the chaos <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" /></p><p>On the right of this screenshot, the remains of my first house attempt, and on the left, the second one... I was really new with the layout editor at the time. By the third attempt, I didn't have enough space in my moving crate to just pack everything and start anew... Maybe I should have hired goblins.</p><p><img src="http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/5527/crapcons.jpg" /></p><p>And this is  my third attempt, which was a better start, but I destroyed it because I realized that with the layouts, it was much easier to build things in a straight north/south axis instead of having the walls facing south west, or north east... Also, on this attempt, I started with the roof, which maybe wasn't one of my best ideas...</p><p><img src="http://img267.imageshack.us/img267/189/crapcons2.jpg" /></p><p>Then for my 4th and last attempt, I started with the front door and front walls, followed by the floors... and everything sorta got into place easily after that, mostly because, I think, I didn't fear the layout editor anymore <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p><p>So yeah, patience is everything, and to all the struggling decorators out there : don't give up <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" /></p>

<p>Wow, your home is so charming! I really love the overall outside look of your home. It's got so much "curb appeal" that I'd love to own a home like that. I especially like your bridge <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> The inside is truely beautiful! You've done and excellent job on all of the details. Great job!</p>

<p>I would love to make a home like this.. if SOE would only allow us lazy people to do this type of decorating in-game without using a layout editor <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

<p>Wow! The top of the waterfall in Halas is a great spot, and you've used it perfectly. The bridge looks great, and you have so many nice little details inside the house. I especially like the froglok pond.</p>

<p><span style="color: #99cc00;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: book antiqua,palatino;">I absolutely love your home!!  </span></span></span></p><p><span style="color: #99cc00;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: book antiqua,palatino;">Cannot take my eyes off the cool fridge, terrarium, the chimney and the Tuptan banner display. They fit in so well with you being froglock. Your architecture is mind-blowing, the unique and totally awesome placement of staircase etc.                    </span></span></span></p>
