Wild Castle must be my fourth or fifth attempt. It did not start seriously and grew very slowly. I think I laid down the first prims over a year ago. For many months I kept the prims there always ready to delete them should any need arise. And once or twice per month I went there fixing a prim here and changing a texture there.
And after a while I realized that the castle had taken shape and I had began to like it and I was ruling out the idea to delete it any time soon.
The castle is up in the sky, 3000m above Winterfell Ebonshire. Not because of any particular privacy concerns but because I like Ebonshire as it was originally intended by Miss Serra, a place of forests and small cottages.
It is not as "beautiful" or elegant as many other castles you can find in SL but I like the solid look it has when looked from the outside, while I have worked (and I am still working) more indoor where elegance is concerned.
Outside the main door there are some gardens. Not a big space, they are constrained by the shape of the parcels, but the give a good feeling when approacing the castle proper.
The main door gets you inside the Grand Hall. It is a big space decorated with paintings of sailships and naval battles.
The Grand Hall is big enough to be a ballroom and I think it is worth to host a Ball soon there. :) I am organizing an event close to Christmas. I hope it works out well.
The first floor is made by a living space. I haven't finished to furnish all the rooms, but I have always considered it to be a place of knowledge, so books are at home there.
The most significant rooms are the Library and my Study Room. Other rooms to be decorated and furnished soon
The roof level is an open space where I am considering some gardens and fountains. It also gives access to the top level of the towers, where I am creating some guest room, should the need arise.
Enough for today ... have fun with your first and second lives :)
