Meanwhile Government housing update…. curtains

Welcome back for another episode of ‘doing up my linden home so it don’t look like utter crap’ I bought some curtains from Fanatik, which can open or close with a click, I managed to resize them to fit the giant windows in my house.

Meanwhile Welcome to Government Housing!

I went for pixel lunch at Gidges amazing house yesterday and felt thoroughly ashamed of the state of my SL house. I live in a Linden home, or Government housing (stole that from Gidge too) and only have 117 prims to play with, I like Linden homes as they are easy, the building itself doesn’t count towards the total prim count and unlike mainland everyone else’s buildings are just as ugly as yours.

Flat Rodvik Episode 1: The NEW Linden Home Model

The lovely and talented Strawberry Singh gave us a new blog meme this week. She put a Flat Rodvik prop on the marketplace and challenged us to show him around the grid. Here is a picture of me showing him one of the Premium sandboxes. While we were looking around, we talked about the current sale on Premium memberships. I mentioned to him that the memberships could be improved to offer more value. Flat Rodvik was shocked when I explained that Linden Homes have not been updated in years (since 2010 or before). When I asked Flat Rodvik for his help designing a new Linden Home model, he was happy to help me out- as long as I promised not to use any nails.  

I didn't use any nails in this design and no Flat Rodviks were harmed during construction. Instead, the new Linden Home model - The Rodvik - is held together by good will and customer retention. 

The Rodvik is small, but stylish. It's complete with a cozy Great Room (well, the only room) and a fireplace. His toga can be pulled back to let in some natural light (and Flat Rodvik's underwear) or let down again for privacy.… Read the rest

Full House

Look at this picture and then look back at me. Then, look at the picture again and then be amazed that I still have 26 prims to play with.

I managed to make fewer than 117 prims look like a comfy home. Yay for me, yay for mesh. 

We're only making due with this Linden Home until we find a really nice, new plot of sandy beach to buy/rent. My husband Jerremy is itching to throw prims all over the place. (And we want to host some elaborately decorated parties again.) 

Downstairs, I have a home office, a kitchen, dining room, and a  living room. (Please ignore the pose balls that I forgot to hide.) Upstairs, there's a bedroom, dressing area, and a bathroom. I did make one decorating compromise; the bathroom doesn't have a toilet. I'd spring for one, but we can just pee in the shower and save those prims for something else. 

I've blogged about my first apartment/condo in SL and how I first learned to set up a home with the 100 prims I was limited to. Years later?… Read the rest

I filled out that survey they sent.

Just this past week, The Lab sent out a survey to Linden Home owners that they said was going to be used to "make the Premium offering even better!" (hahahahaha!)  So, I filled it out and whenever there was a box for write-in comments, I typed and typed until I could type no more. I'm full of ideas. We'll see if anything ever comes of it. 

One of the multiple choice questions was "What do you do with your Premium Home?" They only had a few choices and I can only remember a couple of them - like using it as your primary home or using it as a place to open boxes. But, they totally missed my four favorite uses for my Linden Home, which are: 1) using it as the SL Bloggers Group headquarters, 2) RPing that my house has been robbed of all possessions (because it's almost empty with only 117 prims allowed - get it?), 3)  pretending it's a very low altitude skybox, and 4) standing inside while I fill out surveys.

By the way, the mesh sweat shorts that I'm wearing in this picture taken out front of my Linden Home?… Read the rest

Back to SLuburbia

So, Jerremy and I sold off all of our plots of land this summer and moved into a shiny new Linden Home. (We think the schools will be better for our prim son, Blocky.)

We just got one house under my account, since you can't specify that you want two next to each other. Maybe we'll get a second for ... I'm not sure. Storage? It would have been so cool if Jerremy and i had been able to get two right next to each other. However, we lucked out and got one that has a lake view. And a neighbor with a cow.

It's been a good "staging area" so far. For me at least. You see, I forgot to set the land to our group. Which meant that Jerremy couldn't set it as his home location. And he hadn't saved a landmark. So, my darling husband has been wandering the neighborhood, unable to find our home again in the sea of look-alike houses.

It reminds me of a story I heard a while back about a man in France (?) who rented an apartment, went out shopping and couldn't remember the address to his new apartment. He wandered around the city, searching for it for a long time.… Read the rest
