Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
The '61 Bridgeport Expo invited architects, designers, and artists from across the globe to submit designs for small homes that reflected different cultures, innovative creativity, or daring engineering. Out of fifty-three submissions, twelve were chosen to be built at a site just outside the city, in a peaceful mountain valley. Along with a few exposition halls, the dozen showcase homes made a small community dubbed, Expotown. After the six month celebration of culture and industry, most of the homes were disassembled and rebuilt elsewhere.

Concept Cottage Model #22 was submitted by Gerd Alsvik, a landscape painter from Norway. It was a re-visitation of the Dragestil (Dragon Style) of Scandinavia from the close of the previous century. Her home prominently featured overhangs, timber, and fearsome, medieval dragon ornamentation on the roof. She worked with a small footprint, stacking the living areas over a garage and workshop, believing her design appropriate for both city or country settings. The judges loved her traditional offering and the open living/dining/kitchen spaces.

I used the Neutral Gray Slate Roof from QBUILDERZ's Neutral Slate Recolors here on MTS. While not vital, the effect of the beams on the gables will not look the same without a white trimmed roof pattern.

Other Stuffs.

Thanks to Armiel, whose Builder's Island provided the backdrop for my screenshots. Super thanks to Fergie_F, who introduced me to this style and inspired me to play around with it. And thanks to everyone who downloads my silly creations. Your comments and thanks greatly inspire me.
