More Than Tête à Pied
Those who are familiar with the Nouveau sim may have noticed a cozy cottage that was once nestled in at at the end of our little pond. I was happy to call it home for close to a year but I had to give it up to make room for our Vivant line. It didn't take long for me to miss having my own little spot. Unfortunately, we can't spare too many prims and I'm too spoiled by Nouveau to find land somewhere else. After some begging and pleading, I did manage to convince the Renaissance man of SL, Mr. CJ Carnot, to build a smaller, lower prim version of my old cottage so that I could squeeze it onto a little 1024 plot in our sim. This sweet little English cottage is just 67 prims with a 20x20 m footprint that includes the terrace. The cottage also comes with a fireplace with both particle smoke and fire. I think most will agree that CJ's years as a first life architect and SL builder show. His textures are almost entirely hand drawn and have lots of great character. Since we've been receiving a number of requests to purchase some of CJ's builds, we are setting both the cottage (and the tea house should be next) up for sale in the little green house next to our main shop. Even if you aren't in the market for a prefab, I think it's worth a trip to just appreciate his lovely work.
