I finished the Silverdale house, but I stopped with the shell. It was fine, but it still wasn’t quite what I have been picturing.
The next day I took a trip to Eugene and spotted one of my favorite local old farmhouses. It seems creepy to give you the map information, but here’s a picture from Google Street View.
It’s more ramshackle than I envisioned, and it has the wrong kind of roof. But this is exactly the sort of traditional, foursquare farmhouse I’ve been thinking about. As soon as I returned home, I got to work.
I love it!
When I saved the lot to my library, I ran into the character limit for lot names. I meant to name it the “Splines Foursquare Farmhouse” but I only had enough room to call it the “Splines Foursquare Farmho.” I’m not mad about it.
