Thanks Gogo! It's one of my favorite builds that I've done so far.

I like this one! The exterior and the landscaping in particular -- the walk-in basement and similar tricks are stuff that I've not even dared to try yet, so I'm in awe of it. :p The color scheme in the study screenshot is really nice too.

Thanks Korva! It was my first time attempting a basement like that and I was surprised at how easy it was.

This is stunning! So much detail in it and I love the fact that it's a 3 story home at the back. I am not so good at building like that. Wonderful build!

Thanks, Joria! It was modeled after a floor plan I found online and modified to be similar to a house we used to go to for vacations up on Anderson Island between Olympia and Tacoma.

This is stunning! So much detail in it and I love the fact that it's a 3 story home at the back. I am not so good at building like that. Wonderful build!

Thanks, Neashaleigh! It still has a few things left that can be done to it, landscaping in particular I'm not so good with. But, I figured if I didn't get it posted that it would just sit there unused and it's always nice to be able to add your own touches in builds to make them more you.
