This isn't exactly a request, but I was asked what I thought a Utah house would look like. My previous knowledge of this place was limited, I knew that Utah was a place with lots of mountains and mormons... Obviously I needed to do some research. After getting some inspiration from Street View, this is my impression of a relatively new Utah house.
What I found was that most of the houses has a mix of earth colored stucco, stone, brick and/or some wood. The houses with good views tend to have massive open living rooms with wall-to-ceiling windows. I don't know what these houses look like on the inside, but I assume the trend is dark, earthy tones as well.
The house I decided to make is not based on any specific house, but it's my general impression of Utah designs.
First floor has a two stoy foyer, two story kitchen, a living room, dining area and a bathroom.
The second floor has three bedrooms, one office/nursery and one bathroom.
The house has several paintings that were painted when testing the house, I hope those show up with the house! If not, I will upload a new version shortly.
While I wasn't too impressed with the general Utah architecture, I love the landscaping! They often use large rocks, shrubs, dirt and lawn mixed together. I tried replicating that for the yard, and also made a nice backyard following the same technique.
Big thanks to luvalphvle for inspiring me to make this house, I am really happy with it!
