I have a Linden Home, can I build walls inside to make a bathroom, kitchen or other separate room?

Question

Yes.  That's a great idea.  You can't delete or alter any permanent part of the house itself -- it's a rental from Linden Lab, after all -- but you can add walls, a loft, false flooring, anything you like.  Build your walls the same way you would build anything else in SL.  Use your Build/Edit tool to rez prims, stretch them, move them into place, and texture them.  If that's new territory for you, take a look at this set of starter instructions first >>> http://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Build-Tools/ta-p/700039

Experiment as much as you like, and delete your bad experiments until you get one you want to keep.  If you'd like to spend a little more time learning how to handle the building tool, I recommend visiting Builder's Brewery, NCI, or Caledon Oxbridge University in world.  All three places offer frequent free building classes.  Fun too.

Walls are a great way to get started in learning how to build in Second Life. Here's a link to get you started- http://www2.uncp.edu/home/acurtis/NewMedia/SecondLife/HowToBuildInSecondLife.html

 

Texturing your new walls (which are just basic prim boxes) in a premium home is easy! Each of the premium home styles has an associated texture pack for it, free to premium residents to use as they wish (as long as it's for noncommercial purposes, of course!).

 

These texture packs can be found in the community centers (usually info hubs) of each area and will have the textures specific for that area.

 

To find these community centers, open the World Map while in your home and scan around it, looking for the info hub symbol nearest you within your home area. You can distinguish the different premium home style areas on the map, they all have a distintive layout pattern and you can easily see the parkland borders that separate them. Oh, but if you have an Eldergreen style house, its community center is NOT an info hub, you'll have to recognize its distint shape that dominates the Elderglen Region  Otherwise, Meadowbrook home textures can be found in Meadowbrook region, Tahoe textures in Tahoe Springs and Japanese home textures at the info hub in Shareta Osumai.

 

Once you get to the community center, just explore around it, looking for the texture giver. Take your time, there's also a lot of other premium content surprises hidden away there as well!
