Good, but try to add more shape to your buildings. You can tell this is really just a rectangle with a few things added on top.

Great
Really cool house Teo!  I think that oak wood planks would look better for the floor.  And what are the iron bar things?  I don't really like that part.  Nice balconies on the  back.

Interesting, and it's cool to see that people are actually building things on Different. I applaud your staircases, they look pretty good. Also, normally I would criticize the use of jungle logs and stone as individual building materials, but they look pretty good together. You also picked a nice location for this. Almost untouched, save for the -ZNER, which also shows that there is actually civilization nearby. I also like the path leading from the -ZNER to the house, especially the gravel. However, there is maybe a bit too much wildgrass. The flowers and trees nearby are also nice- they add an ambient feel to the house. And what are the iron bars at the bottom for? I guess they're cages to torture villagers in. Heh.

@Kro: I agree and disagree. He added enough that it looks good, but at the same time it bugs me that without those extensions, it looks like a giant rectangle on the outside. Fortunately, those extensions are there, which draw my eyes away from the shape and towards the design.

The underlying shape is everything. Without a good shape, it's impossible to have a great building.

The actual design is fairly bland but I really like how it actually looks like a house a real person could live in.

Thanks a lot! Well, the project is inspired by how the blocks of flats are built in my town/city, they are always better than those old cuboids of flats that still exist in certain districts.

This is pretty nice, but I have 2 issues with it.

1. The stained clay with different colors seems random and I feel like it's only there to make it look modern, edgy and different. The texture for clay isn't very interesting and as a result I think it usually doesn't look all that great when used.
2. The path to the house is cool, but it looks really off when you see it zoomed out and it connects to the fancy road, perhaps mainly because it cuts into the road a little bit and that just looks strange. It would be better having it gradually change to broken down road from the nice looking one. Also the weeds/flowers are too isolated, you need to spread that out more so it doesn't look like the entire world gets is lawn mowed except for this house.

Like kro said, the design is very simple. I don't think that detracts from it, it just doesn't add anything to it. That said, you did a pretty good job with making it look not as plain with your placement of logs, windows, steel fenced and the two entrances
