A typical, modest merchant's dwelling in the province of Darwynia.

Great job on the rounded shape and roof! Those are tricky to do,the windows look nice as well. I might change the tree a little bit though,maybe make it a little taller. Good work all around  :thumbup:

Hey! Where's your guild banner?  :laugh:

I like this. Its a small and well done build - nice round bay windows and base.

The roof is good - but could be better :)
Wasier said than done - but maybe try to to round it a bit to match the bay window?

Very nice, although it might be a little cramped living in there! :laugh:  
Good to see more Avalonian houses.

Not if you eat, sleep, take a bath, etc in the same room. Like they did in medieval times :wink:

Looks great, smooth design! Especially the woodwork and the roof are well done!

I know how they did it in medieval times. The GoH is based in a fantasy world. Please don't base your comment off of one of my post's. :classic: JC is my homeboy.

Ahh... Beery... you feeling okay?

Anyhow I like the color combo and the interesting shape.  It is small, but JC did say this was a "modest" merchant's house after all.  

Good job!

First, thanks to everyone for looking, the supportive comments, and the constructive crits!
It is a little small, but I did want to portray a small/poor house that still had some pride: a few pieces of woodwork here and there, a unique design, a little character. etc.
The roof was infuriating! It was perfect until I added the bay window, and that threw off the whole formula. These free builds are a perfect excuse to experiment, and this one was not 100% successful, but I think charming enough to win you over.
Darwynia is close to the borders of both Benoic and Anytria, and about a day's travel from Albion, so even the poorest merchant would still have a fairly affluent hovel. lol
And BB: You know I got your back, yo. XD
