    So, me being absolutely obsessed with aesthetics, I attempted to make A house that wasn't just a huge box... Me not being an experienced builder, i'm not quite sure how I did, and would like some tips for future builds.

    (Also, please just ignore the missing paint in areas, I just bought a companion cube from the traveling merchant and am completely out of cash)

    Please do not bump Threads. Thread bumps made without additional significant content for the Thread are not permitted.

    If you have content to share such as a screenshot, showing the progress of your build for example. It would be fine to bump the Thread from there.

    You might want to try decorating with something other than dressers

    @PixelPete That was supposed to be a library-type thing, but thanks, i'll try to add other stuff to it.

    If it's a library, I suggest bookshelves made with different types of wood, planters, platforms with books on them and some tables and chairs

    Ah, Thank you! That's exactly why I made this thread, to get tips like that. One of my biggest worries with this house was the shape, is it alright? @PixelPete

    It definetly has an interesting layout which is what you want to make the build unique. But I'd make the rooms in the 'Library' different shapes and perhaps combine some of them into bigger rooms

    Use walls to make more 3D looking roofs

    I just realized what he meant by dressers and feel stupid.
    the dressers were storage XD
    I thought he had a mistake and called the bookshelves dressers d=

    If you're trying to get a "library" look, I'd recommend following Frostiikin's advice.

    Here are some visual representations to consider:
