This is another Test Center design, but it's while trying to better incorporate my runebooks into the house design without having to create a complete separate structure for the runebooks. It's also where I work with some Winter themed decor. This is also where I began adding more porches to my designs in an attempt to prevent the houses from looking too large and blocky.
In this design you can also see the result of the new Treasure Map system - mainly the new vines hanging on either side of the door on the 2nd story porch.
At this point I'm very angry with myself. There were at least 6 house designs between February and December that I can clearly see in old screenshots, but I failed to go through and take screenshots like this. Previous ones are incomplete screenshots of the house, or while the house was in progress, or including some old friends and some text that would take away from the design. I thought I was more thorough at documenting my house designs.

This is the first house design I made where I really experimented with juxtaposing different wall types together for an all new feel. This is also during my stage of oriental-style housing, which lasted for well over a year.
Here is another view of the exterior, as well as the Northwest roof garden I used. This is unusual in that my gardens aren't typically in that corner of the house. I don't do this often because the walls to the South and East of the garden tend to obscure any decorations I might put. In this case, I used it to break up an otherwise bulky building.
