Misty Grove Orchard & Chateau (Full Cobbled Reskin and Expansion of Old Mistveil Manor)

Here are some screenshots from a home I finished recently, Misty Grove Orchard and Chateau. This build involved a full reskin of Old Mistveil Manor (interior and exterior), expansion via enclosure of the upper porch, and lots of cobbles.

This build uses no FX, other than to add extra apples to the trees outside (only a few of those are real décor) and to hide readable book prompts inside the existing bookshelves (not pictured in the screenshots). Oh and I added two Darien pictures because... reasons... <3

Since only some of the exterior apples and the two Darien pictures are FX, I am not including with-FX/without-FX versions of the screenshots.

Here are some detailed shots, going through each area in the order it is encountered, with close-ups of the many cobbles at the end.

    Chryseia I remember watching this house on JHarts tour a couple of weeks back. I was just mesmerised at how brilliant it was. Almost everything I saw in the video was a re-skin. There were so many ideas in this video. Particularly, I love your chandeliers.

    Love teh house, but how in the name of Caldwell did you get everything lined up so nicely, all my stuff is misaligned and what not

    You have to put your char on walk, back up as far as you can, make sure you are lined up with the wall in front of you (or the floorboards) and then grab the item in the middle.

    Then, just keep doing that until you have moved the item to roughly where you want it.

    Surface drag normally helps, but sometimes you have to switch it off, as other objects can interfere with it and some items don't sit directly on surfaces with it (there is a gap).

    To move an item that is already aligned with a surface, but too far away from/too near to it (and that you are aligned with), after you have used the above method, if necessary, drop the item, don't move your char, or the cursor and then gently pick the item up again.

    This should make sure that it hasn't moved even slightly as you pick it up, so you can then gently nudge it forward, or backwards, without any lateral movement.

    For greater control, you can crouch before doing all this.

    You can also go into first person, on crouch and walk, to move things tiny amounts.

    It's just practice really - finding out what works and what doesn't.

    Even when you know what you are doing, things can go wrong, so you just have to experiment and be prepared to undo and redo, when they do.

    I believe the EHT addon can also help you, if you struggle, although I have never used it for that.

    If you have the current bug where items are turning themselves directly after placement, I doubt there is anything you can do about that.

    Just have to wait for a fix.

    There is also another bug where linked items can move randomly, after you have placed them (when you're not in the home!).

    You just have to grit your teeth and redo them.

    They stop moving after a while.

    does your EHT give you the grid lines at an angle as well or straight foward

    As I say, I've never really used it for that.

    It only seemed to put the grid in at weird angles, for me (so it wasn't really of much use, anyway), but it's possible there is a way of adjusting that.

    @carly Thank you! The lapis inlaid floor was made with an upside down Crystals, Midnight Cluster with the gold orcish seal luxury items, like this one, for example, though it could have been any of the 4 - they all have the same shape - sunk into it until just the rim is showing. I then copy and pasted the seal and offset the copies in various directions to create the geometric pattern.

    Again..wow! That you even thought of bringing those items together to create that inlay speaks to your creativity. Just brilliant! Thank you for sharing that.

    Not only is the house beautiful, it is a phenomenal example of your creativity, skill with the housing tools, your patience (I'm sure this took a great deal of time) and your kindness in helping those of us less creative of some tricks of the trade. Kudos all around @Chryseia

    These decorations are stunning! The custom walls, floors, tables, and windows are incredibly beautiful, and I love everything about the nautical room! Amazing creativity! May I ask which items were used to make the walls in the entry hallway? They mesh really well!

    Once again, a magnificent home!

    You've taken an otherwise drab (my opinion) home, and turned it into something worthy of the elite. And you've done it all without fx. Great work! This build, demonstrates how cobbling and layering can transform a house, and showcases your brilliant talent for design. :)

    Thank you for sharing your gift of design with us.

    Thank you Jaimeh, ermenna, and kind_hero!

    @Jaimeh, the entry hall walls is made of multiple hourglass rugs offset by 1 rotational degree to ensure there are no visible border seams. The lower wainscoting is just the base of the Tojay-Raht Statue, Monk.

    Thank you for letting me know Chyseia! Amazing placement of the carpets!

    Thank-you so much for this! As someone who learns more easily through reading than watching, this post has helped me with EHT more than all of the videos I've struggled through. Using Orcish gazebos, limestone stairs and limestone curved fences, I just built a tower with a circular staircase winding around it and I feel so proud of myself!

    Now if only you could teach your astonishing eye for decorating possibilities that lets you see how a signpost can become a beautiful window!
