Update of the Avatar - 09/04/13: Home Sweet Home!
Greetings Fellow Avatars! Welcome to the Village Home Edition of Update of the Avatar! We've been working on several village-level homes, including the homes that are part of the Benefactor and Founder Citizen Pledge rewards. Please keep in mind that these homes are still "works-in-progress" and are being modified and tweaked as we receive feedback. So please, log in to our forums and let us know your opinions!
Shingle-Roof Village Home
Let's start our Parade of Homes with one of our most affordable village homes, which will be available to all players, backers and non-backers alike. It is a single room, single story dwelling, that we currently refer to as the Shingle-Roof Village Home:

Viking Village Home - September 1/2 Price SALE!
With this next house, we experimented with something that allowed for a larger variety of color, yet still appropriate for the time period and overall art style. This Viking Village home is a two-story dwelling, with a single large room downstairs and a wrap-around loft on the second floor:
And here are a couple of interior shots of the Viking home, with a few decorations added:
