Though the new restrictions on size and prim count do provide a lot of inspiration at times. The Petit Lake house is the end result of such restrictions.
The Petit Lake House measures 10x10meters in terms of footprint. It is a single room residence with one sliding door. The structure is one linked object except for the door and comes with a rezzor for convenient placement on desired land lots. It is 37 prims total.
I tried to roll in most of my recent lessons learned into this build and I would like to think that many SL residents will find this little house to be a great addition to their already existent estate or perhaps find it just the right fit for a small residence on its own on their favorite piece of SL.

Well I just have to say, I hope you enjoy this prefab because I sure did put a lot of work into it. It is roughly 220 prims and comes with Paskis Window and Door scripts as well as a keyserver that allows you to give access to controls of windows and doors to just about anyone you desire.
I also included several of the light fixtures I used in staging the house and a few other goodies like planters and such.
I hope that the pictures below inspire new owners in decorating this house with fine furnishings from the Mission Home Store.

I have been absent from the blog for a while working hard at work. I also took the month of July off for vacation. I hope everyone is having a great summer.
I have great news for you all. I am almost done with the Zimmerman Prefab that's based on the RL house called Zimmerman that was designed out of the Frank Lloyd Wright studio. Here's a link to the original house:
And here's a preview of my version of it adapted for SL:
The house is going to be rougly 220 prims or less. It will have scripted windows and doors and keyserver built in.
I originally built a version of this house in SL for Gayle Cabaret back in 2006. This new version is a complete rebuild. I must have replaced every single prim and repositioned everything else during the rebuild process. I brought the house down from 500+ prims to rougly 200 prims. It took a bit of texture work and some utilization of huge prims here and there as well as some cool uses of sculpties. I think overall it represents the peak of my building abilities.
I hope people will like it as much as I enjoyed building this gem.
Mission Home Store Philosophy
My building rationale and point of view can be summed up by one word: Quality.
I have been in SL since August 2004, and have been running this store since 2005. Mission Home Store is without doubt the best source for mission style furniture in SL.
