View Full Version : Everfrost summer Home: Under Construction

<p>I have been working on my newest alt's Everfrost Summer Home.  I have mostly been working on adding additional rooms.  Since the ceiling in the central room is so high, I went up.</p><p>Location:  South Freeport, Oasis</p><p>Owner: Keathairne</p><p>The entry...  you can see a crack in the ceiling above center-right.  I have since corrected that.</p><p><img src="http://a6.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/206349_1487954618864_1833918997_872714_5710027_n.j pg" width="720" height="405" /></p><p>I have made a few changes since most of these pics were taken.</p><p>This is the ramp to the second floor.  I had originally been going to have stairs, but that eats up so much of the item count.  What I ended up using are the long honey botanical rugs.  They are invisible (and walk through) from the underside, but fully solid from the top.</p><p><img src="http://a8.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/215015_1487955018874_1833918997_872717_6411970_n.j pg" width="720" height="405" /></p><p>This is a view of the bedroom, facing left from the entry.  I plan on replacing all the gold tiles with black marble once the Freeport city festival arrives.</p><p><img src="http://a6.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/207684_1489000485010_1833918997_874084_941020_n.jp g" width="720" height="405" /></p><p>...and here is the right side of the bedroom.  Note:  the rug on the floor by the far wall looks so innocent, but it hides the ramp to the shrine below.</p><p><img src="http://a1.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/217605_1489000245004_1833918997_874082_1538854_n.j pg" width="720" height="405" /></p><p>The shrine.  I had to have one of my other alts donate the second [Praise the Prince of Hate], and again, I plan on replacing the gold tiles with black marble.  I am thinking of doing the floor in here with black marble also.</p><p><img src="http://a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/215272_1489000325006_1833918997_874083_3878173_n.j pg" width="720" height="405" /></p><p>I am not sure how long it will take me to finish this place.  I am making as much use of the natural features as I can.  I would like to thank Beergut for the idea of using ramps.  I added three floors and an attic, but the upper levels are currently unfurnished.</p>

just as i suspected, the coin tiles look like 1970s gold carpet when scaled largest <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> was a bit of a colour shock when stepping through the tapestry, but i like it the invisible backed rugs really threw me until i reread your post lol *blush* it looks like the very top floor's ramp is horizontal and unable to get up there i like the attic with the guild door <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> look forward to seeing your home finished

<p>I don't really care for that gold color.  I plan on replacing them with the black marble when the Freeport city festival arrives next month.  They were easy to work with as a temporary measure until then though.</p><p>I made the attic when I "patched" the hole in the ceiling, if you can look up and see this, then you are on the top floor:</p><p><img src="http://a3.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/216012_1489000165002_1833918997_874081_7803252_n.j pg" width="720" height="405" /></p><p>The attic itself can only be accessed by the teleport pad.  I had originally set the guild door in this position because there was a gap in the floor right behind it that you could fall through.  But I redid the floor, and that sealed it.  I decided to leave the door as I had first placed it, as it kind of looks like it has just been tossed into the attic for storage:</p><p><img src="http://a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/208625_1487954538862_1833918997_872713_4912966_n.j pg" width="720" height="405" /></p><p>I don't really need the treasure chest in this place, and once multiple housing is released, I will move it to a house that has an upkeep cost, but it kind of fits into the attic.</p>

<p>I've been busy doing other things, but I finally got around to taking pics of this home after changing the ugly yellow tiles to the black marble ones.</p><p>Here is the bedroom:</p><p><img src="http://a2.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/113/a3d95dc639b7430e939536612b23652f/l.jpg" width="600" height="450" /></p><p><img src="http://a3.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/148/f6e94db2564644d18be43ebb378c2326/l.jpg" width="600" height="450" /></p><p>...and below, the Shrine:</p><p><img src="http://a1.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/126/c06f0b3d3a354c2891ec3968440aa089/l.jpg" width="600" height="450" /></p><p>Which now has an "Entertainment Center."</p><p><img src="http://a1.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/132/c9aeb76e317a4fc595bb9db9dc211bd6/l.jpg" width="600" height="450" /></p><p>Part of what has kept me busy is that I have also been working on the home of Calenthis, my necromancer, at 2 Walk of the Dead (also on the Oasis server).</p><p>Here is the Entry:</p><p><img src="http://a3.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/128/d0628a5420814bb39829c0c937580374/l.jpg" width="600" height="450" /></p><p>The Study:</p><p><img src="http://a2.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/118/6888570e2d3943388ce282f46338556b/l.jpg" width="600" height="450" /></p><p>The Dining Room:</p><p><img src="http://a4.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/143/9950a78f684c42d68e4bee6210d48313/l.jpg" width="600" height="450" /></p><p>The Sitting Room:</p><p><img src="http://a3.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/146/e433fbe050b34ddb9a39dcd7320c7e25/l.jpg" width="600" height="450" /></p><p><img src="http://a3.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/144/073fb7c25c044e009b569e282a86b209/l.jpg" width="600" height="450" /></p><p>The Kitchen:</p><p><img src="http://a4.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/130/20f6dbeae39f4ab4beb1b4b0fa7ff339/l.jpg" width="600" height="450" /></p><p>The Bedroom:</p><p><img src="http://a1.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/126/f4e1c22ae1c24dec8e7c16719b5bf8b7/l.jpg" width="600" height="450" /></p><p>...and the Balcony:</p><p><img src="http://a1.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/130/8748bf64e8a74caf8a33fa2d835175bb/l.jpg" width="600" height="450" /></p><p>Calenthis' home has a breakout, where I am building a maze... and it is not really photogenic.</p><p>None of my homes are in any state to be published... and I found the whole system of publishing to be rather confusing.</p>
