I added bigger shallow pond on the backyard of my Winchester home.

There's water all over the place, the inland big lake on the west side of the house, the long channel leading to the north in the front, the big swimming pool on the west side, and then the pond at the back. There is still room to add a creek on the east side - maybe someday. 😃

So I'm actually quite satisfied with the inside of my Shelley. For now that is. 😆 I also ran out of prims, so there's that too... 😂
Post will be picture heavy.

I didn't include pics of the Bathroom because I'm not really pleased with it yet.

Now that I'm "finished", I'm tempted to try the Hardy. 🤣🙈 So we'll see how long this goes well.

The complete thing I assembled from variuos items:

1. The water (very realistic, animated) is from here: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Skye-Water-System-Natural-Water-Materials-Enabled/7483345 It's a bit expensive but the pack has many sizes for the water, so you can build lots of different sized ponds with this water pack.

2. For the sides of the water I just made a rectangular prim with a big hole in it. No need for bottom because the water will have texture in it for the bottom feature. So that will hide the land texture under it.

3. The rocky item (left from the fire) with small water feature is called "[DDD] Nanshe's Spring", creator: Anke Hatchuk. Main store: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Dysfunctionality/55/1/26 and Marketplace: http://mp.dysfunctional.space

4. The fountain is (hidden under the rocks, only the water sprouting up is shown): "fishy fountain (1 prim)", creator: Aley

I have joined the dark side. I was releasing a Traditional on an alt. He got a new house after 10 minutes. Boats and campers on the page all the time. Not interesting. I suddenly felt that I just repeat what I do in the houses. So I found a 850 L, 1024 m plot Mainland. Gasp, the horror. But if there is a new theme in February, I can easy abandon that lot... 850 L was not much to cry over. I am sure I can set it to 500 L and have someone take it.

It looks nice for Mainland, and I don't care if I am surrounded by full bright 2007-style castles tomorrow. It is not a place I will stay, and I can air my skyboxes then.

The urge to copy this is strong in me!  that just looks sooooooo fantastic!  You have made the dark look very elegant.  I am so totally jealous!

I am enjoying the landscaping, textures and general ambiance of the Victorian homes as much as I am enjoying decorating them. I am thinking of using the Doyle model next.492292758_rsz_highmarket4(1).png.3f1011626129196494e212d5c3088101.pngrsz_highmarket5.png.5c4ee102ea08e382d47966893251df5b.pngrsz_highmarket6.png.ea40f98d4071ccb7355f343f26e5b43e.pngrsz_highmarket9_2.png.094cddb5514e90f6f698bfc514311f6c.pngrsz_highmarket12.png.5d70bc25b5b4c0c4530eb66ac19c98dc.png1088836688_PeuCorner_001.thumb.png.cd16eaa0a8fdf20b98bdc33ed9c3e5e8.png

These are beautiful!!

I am envious!

It just blows my mind that you all can decorate it so beautiful and with SOO much furniture!!

I struggle so much to just get two Items of furniture in....and by the time I do....I have no prims left

Maybe I am just shopping in the wrong stores and buying too much prim heavy furniture

Its a perfect location. I spend more time outside so I am probably going to change to the Doyle as its smaller, leaving  more Li for the outside.

I have way too much furniture that's medium Li, and that does not work in LHomes. So I have shopped a bit too much. Found some very low Li that fits a grand style.

A dinner chair that's 4 Li isn't heavy? But 4 of them is 16 Li, and I bought dinner chairs that's 1 Li each. 12 Li saved.

1 Li curtains, retextured. 1 Li grand piano. China cabinet with china inside, 3 Li. Chandeliers that's 2 Li. Paintings that's 0.5 li each - and link 2 so I get 2 paintings for just 1 Li.

And so it goes. I also stopped using untidy mesh rugs that's often more than 1 Li, in favor of old school 0.5 Li convex hull prims that's linked. Victorians would not have untidy rugs anyway. And unlike mesh rugs, it is no risk of the Li going up when I stretch them

It is a bit annoying to have so much unused things in my inventory. It is fun to shop, but when can I use what I have?

I was looking at Culprit on the Marketplace, is it possible that the planters came with one of their greenhouses? Or maybe they have more to sell in an inworld store. I am mostly shopping the Marketplace because I can't log into SL itself every time I will shop....😇

They don't come with a greenhouse but are for sale independently, In the past there was a sculpted version with ivy, but a killer at 8 prims.

Later they made a mesh version, i think LI went down to 2 ( without plants). I am not sure where the planter is at the sim, it used of be in front of the Orangerie  but they changed the sim completely last time i was there. You can try an area search, the name is : Culprit Old Standing Urn

Sitting on the balcony add-on of my Winchester house I increased my view distance to whopping 1024 meters. Gradually things in the distance started to appear. And my fps started to drop to single digits - total slideshow with around 3 fps only. Anyway I was able to take the snapshot. The lighthouse in the distance is 656 meters away (about two and half regions away).

I find it difficult at times too and I am thinking of switching to the Doyle bungalow style Victorian as the Li allowance would be plenty for it. I do find myself constantly checking Li on items now when I go shopping. I didn't really do that before.

If you buy the right furniture you should be able to fill up your house to full.  First thing you should invest in is all that bathroom furniture from LAQ Decor, its amazingly low prim if you can get your hands on it.  they had a few other things i'd suggest as well. :)

Your house is just perfectly decorated throughout both inside and out. I love the railings, they just add that authentic Victorian touch.
