Default McMansion
So, I got this McMansion, which looks pretty good on the ouside, but i'm having trouble doing the inside of it. Can I have help?

We would need to see some good overhead floorplan pictures of each floor to be able to give any advice about the inside of the house. I do see some issues though with the exterior that could use work( I don't know if this is your final version of the exterior or if you are just trying different things out) 1- the roof pitch seems high and you have several different roofs that can be better aligned to form a more coherent structure. 2-the front of the house is in all brick but the back of the house is in all siding which seems odd to me. 3- you have several different window types that seem out of place (I would use maybe 2-3 window types). 4-you have some landscping in the front with none in the rear. Again- I don't know if this is the finished look of exterior or you are just trying different looks. The basic structure seems OK and the use of hedge fencing to create landscaping seems nice(I would use more variety of plants though). This is just my advice that you can choose to use or ignore as you decide.

Here are some tutorials that may help you:

McMansions often have high-piched roof and diffrent roof types. They also tend to have vinvil slidling on the back

Have a look at some interiors on Google images for inspiration
for example: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-AgX5LKp0L.../mcmansion5.jpg

You'll find a lot of images mocking McMansion interiors though

I know they have different roof types but what I am trying to explain is that from the front of house I see seven roof sections (circled in blue) that I think you should try to align some better(top 3 especially) so that those 3 sections look like a single continuous roof and you can do this by using roof pitch adjustments. I have not seen brick and siding with brick all on one side and excluded on the other. I usually see brick on lower floor with siding above, brick with siding extensions, or siding with brick extensions. Your floorplan is an empty house with no rooms- a house needs bedrooms,bathrooms,kitchens,living rooms. Larger houses can have a foyer, study/library, game rooms, art studios, indoor theaters, nursery, etc.

Good start, and I know that is done in some places as brick is so expensive, but IMO pick either for the house to be brick or have wood siding. It will look far more cohesive if the same and not such a totally different look from the front and back.
