This is Crapule's house, in Manors of Mithaniel, Permafrost.

Let's go inside... The entrance :

The kitchen

living room

Don't be fooled, there is a glass window between the living room and the terrace, but, errr.. it's an invisible one :p

Down the stairs, a door to the backyard and a small room...

Crapule's bedroom

Behind the tapestries, the bathroom

A froglok shouldn't live without a pond of some sort

A small tinkering corner

That leads to the roof...

A closer look at the flower

The night is falling...

And that's it

Visitors are welcome, but please be aware that this house was built for a small frog, so ogres and trolls and other tall races might have to shrink themselves/bring an illusion, or they'll hurt their foreheads

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.

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!

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

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.

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...

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 SMILEY

So yeah, patience is everything, and to all the struggling decorators out there : don't give up

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 SMILEY

I just finished my tour and it was even more amazing in person. You have a very creative mind to have come up with so many uses for things. Great job! It's very pretty.

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.

I absolutely love your home!!  

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.
