Wow! That's a really great house, definitely my personal favourite of your creations so far! It's nice to see you building in Twinbrook too, that house looks like it suits the position well.

I don't count on any command projects now since I start to work from home. It takes so much time. Much time then before. I did not expect this. Your houses always leave me puzzling about how it was done.

Looks good so far! Even if it is a bit on the grand side to be masquerading as a cottage.

I've almost finished my latest creation, which has been on the back burner since December 2017.



It's been heavily inspired by Mapperton, as seen in the 2015 adaption of 'Far From The Madding Crowd'. But since then I have drawn further inspiration from Trerice. I've just about finished it now, apart from some finishing touches to the interior and finishing off the landscaping outside, I've already conjured up a backstory for it too, I just need to name it, which is proving to be the biggest struggle for it at the moment. I was thinking of calling it a Grange rather than a Manor, but other than that I'm rather short of inspiration and open to suggestions.

I think I remember that house I like it It's finished even with imperfections and changes made during it's life. I was reading the nomenclature on Wikipedia. Perhaps you can pick a name from that?

Quote:
Nomenclature
The prefix Tre- or Tref- is commonly found in Cornish and Welsh place names, denoting "hamlet, farmstead or estate", and dates from the 7th century Anglo-Saxon invasion of Britain. About 1,300 such place names survive in Cornwall west of the River Tamar, but 3 survive in neighbouring Devon, the next adjoining county beyond the Tamar. A few instances also exist in Glamorgan, on the north side of the Bristol Channel from Cornwall. The prefix is equivalent to Anglo-Saxon suffix -tun or -ton, rare in Cornish speaking areas until the later versio -towe becomes prevalent. The second part of the place name -Rice (compare the name Price 'Son of Rice' from Ap Rhys cf. Welsh Rhys) is the name of the man who held the estate.[3]


Isn't a Grange a bit smaller?

Thanks, I want it to look like it's undergone some changes in its life.
I really like the quote "By Tre, Pol and Pen, Ye shall know Cornishmen" said by Richard Carew in his survey of Conrwall in 1602. It's one of the aspects of what makes Cornwall so special to so many. We've got such a unique culture on this little Celtic peninsula that exudes beautiful coastlines and landscapes too.
I fear my creation is entirely the wrong colour as far as its stonework and roofing is concerned to pass for anything Cornish (or even Devonian for that matter).
But it has got me thinking about looking up place names near to Mapperton to draw inspiration from, so thank you for that suggestion!
EDIT: The suffix of "combe" is very prevalent across most of the southwest though, so I could definitely use that in the name. Just south of Mapperton is a hamlet called 'Loscombe', it really jumps out at me on the map, along with 'Toller Whelme" and "Melplash". But I think "Loscombe Grange" has the best ring to it out of those options.

I always thought that a Grange was essentially a big fancy farmhouse, but you made me question that and so I went and looked it up in the dictionary. Turns out that it means slightly different things in different countries, but in the UK it does refer to "a large house in the countryside with farm buildings connected to it", somewhere I even saw that it was often the home of a gentleman farmer. So I guess it does qualify as a Grange because it significantly bigger than any farmhouse I've ever lived in or seen. Especially after having gone to the effort of upgrading all its fireplaces to fireproof.

Oh? Good to know anyway

I'm working on very different things all the time. First an overloaded CC Palace thing:



Then a minimalist CC house from the latest exp pack:
