LTD TRENDS: SMALL HOUSES FEATURING ‘GREYWOOD HOUSE’ BY CONVAIR

LTD TRENDS: SMALL HOUSES FEATURING ‘GREYWOOD HOUSE’ BY CONVAIR

Writer/Photographer: Moz

There is definitely a penchant for small houses at the moment. Houses that will fit on a 512 sqm piece of land (117 prims in total) – the smallest available on Tier. Not only are these houses being used for their low land impact but also as additional buildings within a larger parcel – say for a guest house or summer house. Many small houses are used for rental purposes or as beautiful examples of starter homes.

We looked at the ‘Greywood House’ by Convair which is presently available at the current round of Shiny Shabby until November 19th. Afterwards, it will be sold at Convair’s main store.

‘Greywood House’ is a one room cottage with a loft bedroom and scripted front door. It’s 56 Land Impact and Permissions are Copy/Modify.

Convair is a home furnishings store specializing in functional well-designed decor, furnishings and home builds. The store and its products are created solely by the owner Tobias Convair.

We chatted to Tobais about Small Houses and ‘Greywood House’ specifically.

LTD: What do you like about creating small houses?

Tobias: In Second Life® I enjoy doing small houses because as creator I can concentrate on more details because there is just less to model and more time can be spent on the smaller scale detail. Most people don’t realize how much time a creator puts into their creations and a house with its smaller spaces and architectural details can be very time intensive. I spend on average two weeks building a house for Second Life® from design to texturing and a smaller structure is just more fun to make because of the shorter time period to get to the finished product.

LTD: What was your inspiration for ‘Greywood House’?

Tobias: I was inspired specifically by images of Gothic storybook cottages. I like the exaggerated roof angles and Gothic pointed windows that characterize the style. I visited the real life Oak Bluffs camp on Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts several times, a little gathering of tiny cottages of Gothic and Victorian design. Its such a wonderful place and I’ve always wanted to recreate a similar little house such as what is seen there.

LTD: Do you think there’ll always be a place for small houses in Second Life® ?

Tobias: I think so. They are advantageous for several reasons. They are able to be used on the smaller parcels in Second Life® and typically have a smaller prim equivalent. They are easier to furnish by even a new Second Life® resident. I believe they can be used as a little outbuilding for a larger house or estate, serving as a garden structure or little cabin in the woods. People in Second Life® tend to change their homes a lot and this enables the smaller parcel owner to change without a substantial investment to start.

CONVAIR – AUTUMN FIREPLACE SET

CONVAIR have released the ‘Autumn Fireplace Set’ at LTD|THE EVENT which is now open.

One of the nicest fireplace sets we’ve seen recently! There are two versions included – one with shadows and one that is AO only, so Land Impact is either 6 LI or 7 LI. The shadows really make this piece though, giving the fireplace plenty of depth and a substantial feeling to it.

Permissions are Copy/Modify. Here’s the fireplace in a cozy, warm windlight setting.

To get a good fire going, you’ll need to add the ‘Fireplace Accessory Set’. This has a scripted on/off fire animation of logs in a cast iron grate, plus a set of logs in a cast iron stand with fireplace tools. Land Impact of 7 in total and Permissions are Copy/Modify.
