My Own Home   Leave a comment

I finally feel comfortable enough that I’ve gone ahead and took out a rental house, at a place called Footprints In the Sand.  Hanging out at Harper’s island is nice, and she’s told me I’m welcome to come back any time; but one longs for a place of your own, your own “plot o’ ground,” so to speak, even if you’re renting it.

A Home With Stairs!

Harper's new home 1

I’m slowly wearing Conan Bankersbox down.  He’s joined WordPress, and my blog here.  This will allow him to publish his photos on the blog instead of sending them to me and adding a step.  He’s still refusing to write, however; insists writing isn’t his bag, man.  (No, that’s not a quote.)

But, when he gets it together, he takes good photos, mostly landscapes.  Witness:  the shots he took for me of my brand new home — a house with a stairway that I can actually walk down without stumbling over my feet and landing on my–

Harper’s taking a pause to, uh, collect her thoughts. She’ll be back on the next page.

Searching for Summerfest

Searching for Summerfest

Actually, you don’t need to search that hard; Summerfest 2015 is easy to find.  Just teleport there. And you can do a few more things than just shop your brains out; take a float on the rafts in the sea, or a swim in the pool I found there.  I think I saw something about music at some point, so check any listings that may be available.

Home Again

Home 1

I don’t recall right now if I’ve mentioned this before, but I recently evaluated finances, and decided I could expand my land holdings.  So, when I discovered that the quarter-sim lot next to mine was up for grabs, I talked to Marina Xi of GlenXi Estates, my landlords, and boosted myself from a quarter to a half-sim.  This gives me plenty of prims for both my starbase operations overhead, and for living below, provided that I don’t go crazy dirtside.  With some changing around of houses and land arrangement, I now have a nice setup in both directions, in space and on the surface.  You’ve seen shots of the starbase before, which will be where I keep my primary offices for this blog, Harper’s Art and Photographs, and other potential operations.  This article talks about my new home setup.

Here I am (shot through my second-floor window), working on the next great piece of fashion editorial while at my ease.  As I take a break for a bit, I look around the house I’ve inhabited for some months now, and grin at the changes I’ve finished making to it, and to the ease of my life living in it.

New House 3 blog

And they’re mostly centered around this room, the first room you encounter when you enter the house.  I originally published this back in June, when I’d finished setting up the place (though by no means finished decorating it — in fact, that hasn’t happened yet), and you can see the big square fireplace in the center of the area, with a free-floating spiral staircase behind it to the second floor.  These two elements were my biggest bugaboos about an otherwise beautiful house, and something I resolved to work on as time and budget allowed.

Read on to see what I did about it….
