Hello, I currently have a small house (2 story 10x10 to be exact). And it is very hard to find design inspiration as almost everything I find is for large houses.

I have found a couple of ideas, but not enough for me to really start to drawn on well.

Here is what I currently have (I know it could be a lot better, but I just don't have enough practice...yet.)

I wish I could somehow use the adjacent sea to my advantage, go dig up some of the new heritage tokens I just got. =)=)

Interior:

I tried to be simple and do something that felt cozy and welcoming, but I feel its time for a change and would like to work something new up. Input if very welcome.

Well, what type of design or style do you have in mind? You could design a mini japanese castle :)

I found some pics Siobhan of Castles and Courtyards had posted that I thought might help inspire you.Its one of my favourite sites,and one every house decorator needs.

This home, owned by Gecko, was designed keeping the water to the west in mind, to create an illusion of water flowing into the home from the small lake and down to the front of the house. Each room was built keeping this in mind.


Posted Image

The first floor was dedicated as a growing room. What better water than those that flow fresh from deep within the belly of our lands. The next floor up was the crafting rooms.

And finally, a beautiful view from the roof.

Hope these pictures inspire you :)

I have waited many years to get to customize in UO, and last weekend it finally happened! I bought a humble little plot for 100K, which was just a heap of dirt, and by the next day I had created a Grecian house.

Here is a picture at day time:

Thanks, I was thinking a tiny "fisherman" themed house because I'm next to the water. I will play with some designs over the next few days and post what I come up with.

Thanks so much for the input.

Funny thing is although each of these houses are quite unusual and very nicely done I find your little japanese themed hut to be the most cozy comfortable looking of the bunch. Good luck with your future designs!

I just needed some extra storage, so I decided to add a park to PaxOku and use the basement for storage It's a 9x14 if I remember. You can see the pic below. The park will have a seasonal mode to it.
Fall (Halloween theme)
Winter( Christmas theme)
Spring (I'm thinking!!)
Summer (Normal look)

Xen, it is a very cute house, I'm willing to help you out, but do you have any preferences as to how you would like a fishing shack?

Because there are a couple of ways I can do it, but they have very different feels to them. (and degrees of being rustic..)

For example, if you do it in the Papua style woven walls, it can have a very temporary feel to it (you're just there for the moment to do your fishing) or something with a little more permancy like some of the other walls. A Tokuno style fishing shack will also have a bit of a different feel. I think some of the stone styles will be too "heavy" for a shack.

Do you want to make use of both floors as well? That gives also a different feel. I've seen some very cute one story houses for a small plot like yours. Do you want garden area? There is just enough for a little bit of one depending on how you build and how important space is to you.

Anyway, just a few thoughts for you

I spent a few hours and came up with something a little different. I at first wanted to do a fisher themed house, but I kept getting ideas in my head, and one thing led to another.

This was probably the most fun I had doing a simple design, I actually made a little story to explain the theme and why everything is like how it is. I can post it if you really want to hear it, but I think the house looks fine without needed to explain, but the basic theme is a retired adventures turned humble hermit. I wasn't sure if I should do 1 or 2 levels, but I think it turned out well with having the second floor be the bedroom.

Anyways, on to the pictures. This is a 10x10 house to be precise.

Xen, the 2nd house design, oh 'tis very cute =) I love the cozy feel of a small house :)

I have a large, 18x18, house, so I can't really make any awesome super-cool judgments but... yeah :P
