Building houses

I've been spending a lot of time building. I joined premium early this month, finally let go of my parcel and got myself a free 512sqm plot as part of the premium. Wow, 117prims is really little. So I decided to build my own little house.
After  a few weeks and caving in getting another plot of land, I made my little cabin and a couple of other houses.
I also put my houses in Marketplace.
This one room cabin is free.

This is supposed to be my vacation home LOL. You know, when you go for vacation, all you get is that one room. Pixels don't need bathrooms, thank goodness!

This 2 room house is 49L.

I've been playing in roleplay sims for so long, I just had to have 2 entrances for quick exits in case some baddies come to try kill me through one of the doors.
Anyway, this house is only 26 prims so I had abundance extra prims to use my furnitures.

This 3 room house is 69L.

I used the same furnitures in this house because I am in love with Urbanized and Bazar furnitures. They're so modern and contemporary and still classic.

I really enjoyed building. Reminds me of when I finally got bored playing the Sims and just build houses. I bought a lot of textures and stuffs for my builds and already I have some ideas for other styles of modern houses. Maybe with a roof.... although roofs take a lot of unnecessary prims just to look pretty.

Yesterday I downloaded Blender, but that program will take a lot of patience which I have a lot and concerntration which I don't so I don't know how that is going to go.

Colour challenge week35-Feldgrau

I know if not for the weekly colour challenge, I would have failed at updating this blog. Words somehow seems very hard to come out these days. Also, I've been obsessed trying to build my own house and not being very successful at it.

Anyway, I found an old green military outfit from S&S in my inventory.

colour challenge week34-Russet

I'm wearing a mesh outfit for this week's colour challenge.  It's a full perm Retro Dress from Meli Imako. I tried to figure out using GIMP on how to do separate colour for the waist band but after a few days I gave up. I'll try again later when my brain has unfrozen. Instead, I slapped a texture on the dress in-world and colour it russet. It wasn't a failure but neither was it awesome. I will never be a dress production factory that's for sure!

Week33-Tyrian Purple

Tyrian Purple. Reminds me of Royal Purple. I think I will go colour blind after this 52 weeks of Colour challenge is over. I remember when my friends were into folk art, they would talk about all the different shades of colours and it would all go over my head. Now here I am trying to distinguish one similar colour to another!

A dress from Sn@tch.

A gown from MysticHope.

I am loving this hair colour at the moment. If I had not taken the free ffwd .b hair from the recent Hair Fair, I would not have known that Moon would look so good in orangey-red.

I haven't had much time to write lately. One reason is because I was in the midst of moving and setting up SL. I doubt very much I would ever move out of my real life home again. It's no fun.

Colour Challenge week32-Jonquil

Jonquil is not a daffodil but they're both yellow. So I googled and found this: A daffodil has one blossom to a stem. A jonquil’s bloom looks similar to a daffodil, but it has more than one blossom to the stem; sometimes two blossoms, sometimes a cluster of blossoms.

Since I had done a yellow colour challenge earlier, the second time around was a little tougher. I decided to just wear a yellow top, not be a blonde and be surrounded with horses.

colour challenge week31-wales

There is no use pretending, I prefer just taking pictures than talking or writing or whatever. I totally forgot to post last week's colour challenge on the blog. I had fun taking these pictures with Del. Those are both camping outfits from ::LIES Creations::
