I will see when I have time to post full credits. The fireplace backside who is hiding the sideroom is not mesh. You can do it inworld assuming you can texture and follow instructions. I should save this recipe... I never remember the steps. Scroll down to 3 faces display panel and follow the steps. https://ayumicassini.blogspot.com/2009/07/ultimate-guide-to-prim-twisting.html

Now you have a prim with 3 faces. You need a library texture, texture the two side faces with it and adjust until it look convincing. Find panel, brick or some other texture for the middle. To make a better illusion, create 3 thin prims, texture them with wood and place 2 vertical as "bookcase sides" and one as floor trim. Set the wood strips to convex hull and link your 3-faced prim with them = 2 Li.

I used AG creation library textures and Empire textures brick & concrete wall. The brown wood took I from a Linden home texture pack, I think it was log houses.

A more toned down styling with only evergreen and eggnog to hint it is Christmas.

I love the tiny houses from Hideki (1 li!) and the bird houses, 1 li each so much that I had to take closeups. The birdhouses is a gift from the Belle Epoque birthday hunt, I think they are from Kraftwork. And several other birdhouses included, I just picked two. https://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Wild Willows/191/126/11

Things got finished up in a hurry here...

Yesterday there was a post with a lovely gift of free snowy skyboxes above an equally pretty and snowy sim, Snow Globe.   And I see as I type in that link that the forum gods used my snapshot LOL - fu

So this was a fun challenge that turned into a prim scrimping obsession for me. For days since I started, all I've thought about was how to save on prims and still have that full living space look. I

So here is my house in Seaclaid.  I have two land impact left which I may use as a bench out back and or more bushes. Undecided at the moment.   Grass and bushes are mine.    Maybe a t

Heads up my little Snow Globe watchers. I spied a new house out on the ground --  just like mine. So get your stalking binoculars on the ready.

There may be more. I will update if I find them :D  Note this has no number yet :SwingingFriends:

Number 13 is empty so there may be a possibility there soon.  Remember you NEED TO DECORATE (so the landlady knows you are there) or you will lose it.  

 

Only fair. 

And of COURSE we want to see what you did.

OK. I am starting on the free rail car from the Belle Époque hunt.  Some of you must have gone to get that. Marianne?   

Wish me luck.  It seems like a REAL challenge LOL. Lots of different ways to go.

Beds are really the killer.  I may try and make a new bed or adapt an older bed (I have made a few) and see how low I can get.  I  did have a very low land impact daybed that was cute but the minute I turned my LOD setting down to 2 I deleted it. VERY bad LODs  :D.  

It is a really cute cabin and I like it a lot. Just wish it had actual good physics LOL.  

Picky Picky.

Woooo---ooot.  

This just out in the Snow Globe group for those of you that may watch this thread and NOT have your group turned on for messages (I get you there but I always leave LAND groups on :D).

 

I have raised the prim allowance from 50 to 100 prims for the homes on the ground.
Skyboxes are not affected this time.
Friendly greetings ♥

It's a bit tough finding beds under 4 LI. So far, I've found 1 LI beds from Meli Imako.  I'm looking at some at {XO} and they're looking promising.

I got very lucky. I happened to be inworld when the the landowner at Snow Globe sent a group message saying she was going to add a few houses on the ground, first come, first served. I was the first one to IM her and she gave me a choice of house. I always wanted a small one given the LI limits, but it's 100 now! So, I'm breaking the rules of this challenge, but here it is at 98 LI.

Congrats. I agree those extra 50 prims (^^ land impact) make a huge difference. I have leftovers too.  A very lovely present.

I have one of these I think! 

That's 3-5 houses clustered in a pretty landscaped dome in the sky. Check landmark in my picks if you want, it will take you to our little "neighborhood".

Heads up my lovelies. There is an absolutely gorgeous free gift house at Onsu.  It was listed as a group gift but anyone can pick it up. I wrote to the owner to tell them thinking at first that it was a pay group and that it was an error, but it looks like it is indeed a GIFT. Group is free to join if it does get changed to group only. 

 

I suggest getting it if  you have some land and show us what you can do with 50 land impact. It is a tiny house. Super cute. Not very livable as it is tiny with many rooms but certainly can be decorated with 50 li. 

Just a quick shot.

Group join is turned off -- and apparently the need for group. The poster SAYS "group" but when I was there all you had to do was touch the gift giver poster and it gave you the house.  Hopefully it still will.
