Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Last week I was assigned the best project ever...design your dream home! So I spent 7-8 hours on this home and it is my best home yet. The design is completly by me and almost perfectly symetrical and is a mansion at 23 rooms. This was one of my favorite projects and I had a lot of fun with it. Let's hope and pray I get an A!

UPDATE: I scored a 98%, yay! :D

The home is truly me. I haven't uploaded one of my classic luxury homes since I uploaded The Harvard last September. So here you have it!

The home is placed on a 4x5 lot and for it's size runs pretty smoothly. It costs $419,661 and it's features are...

-5 bedrooms
-5.5 Bathrooms
-Two Story Foyer with dual Staircase.
-Two Story Family Room with third staircase for easy access to game room
-Study with built in bookcase
-Gourmet Kichen
-Fully loaded Master Bedroom Suite with bedroom, sitting area, walk-in-closet, and master garden
-Patio
-Huge Loft serving as a Game Room
-Media Room
-Exercise Room
-Fully loaded backyard with gourgeous pool, and even a guest house!

The home does have a couple of things such as the guest house that really wouldn't have any purpose but since my project was to design my dream house I added it in. I'm sure you find use for it.

On one of the sideways garages the garage door is backwards. This originally bothered me but I saw that some featured lots had them backwards so I figured yall wouldn't mind.

You will have an A by sure, this is a perfect manor. Love all the exterior details, you always design the garden with the same care of the interior plan, and it's very appreciated. Great work, general, let us know the final score you will get then. Kiss and ciao.

Fantastic! You definitely deserve an "A" for this. I've never seen such a beautiful house. The mixture of stone and brick, the coloring. The awesome choice of furniture and decor. You are a master!

Okay, people, I think he gets that there's something wrong with the download file, give him a bit to fix it...
I just LOVE this house. Your use of colors, furnature, plants, even walls is unique and inspirational. I can't wait to study how you did this and try to use the techniques in my own building (emphasis on try!)! Really fantastic work, General, as usual. I'm sure you'll get an A+ for this one!
And I like the guest house. :D
Thank you again!!
Always,
Emma

Sorry the file was missing guys, the original included some things that wasn't needed so I had to replace it with a new one. Sorry about that!

Not a problem, General. Thanks for the quick fix & again for the incredible house. Keeping the file size down and useless files out of the system is fully worth a few minutes' wait. Keep up the great work!!
Always,

Thank you all for your kind comments! They really are very uplifting and make me feel happy! I should find out tommorow my grade on the project. For now I was going to do a luxury dorm, a little something out of the norm. I've already started, so let's hope I can finish it by the weekend! :D
