Default Victorian terraced houses (row houses)
I lived in London, England, for a while and used to walk around town admiring all the Victorian and Georgian terraced houses (row houses or town houses for those on the other side of the pond) and their different colors and brightly painted doors. What started out as a row of identical houses a hundred years or more ago has changed over time with repaints, new doors and windows and all kinds of remodelling projects. So for my first building project I chose three Victorian houses, with lower ground floor entrace, wrought iron fences and gates and all the other details. The white painted brick wall texture is one that I made for this project.

The interior isn't finished yet but I have a rough idea of what the floorplan will be like, and have installed six fireplaces in each of the three houses. The roof isn't finished yet either. I would like a "double bend" in it but haven't found a way to do it. Yet. (The houses are built too close to the edge of the lot to let me build "scaffolding" and lift the center of a flat roof...).

The third picture is of another project, with five terraced houses on a single lot, that I've got going too.

these look really good. Its funny cause i live in a house a lot like these. It is a set of 3 identical houses exept they are only 2 stories with a basement. good work.

llan - anychance you could learn to use the resize option and post slightly smaller pictures? It is really nice that I can see these across the room without my glasses - but most people sit a bit closer to their monitors

And it would take up and waste less space ...

Just a quick tip when taking screenshots - turn on Anti-Aliasing (or smoothing) if you can. All those jagged lines reduce the quality somewhat.

It doesn't show up so much on skins or sims but houses are mostly straight lines so it's much more apparent.

looks good!!
i did something simular; typical amsterdam houses, with a canal at the front of the houses. all the houses in one block where connected by this canal, witch looked very good from the neighboorhoud-view.
inside i did break the walls open, to make it one big expensive house.

Love It!

One question i do have is how have you created the basement at the front of the property? I've tried but cant stop the sides from sloping.

Thanks for showing us your work in progress and hopefully it will be available for download soon.
