Palo Alto

The meaning of the words is tall tree, and Palo Alto is also a town in California.  The tall tree is a historical landmark and is over a thousand years old.  It’s also the name of the newest home release by Onsu.  The description is directly from the creators Flick, though truly to appreciate the home visit the main store.

The “Palo Alto” is a Luxurious Transitional Style Home, perfectly blending traditional with the contemporary. The sleek exterior features vertical siding mixed with stone cladding as well as worn wood details making it a highly versatile piece of architecture.

From woodsy farmlands, to the suburbs of a glamorous, cosmopolitan city, this home is sure to fit right in anywhere you’d like to live.

– The home has 3/4 Bedrooms and 1 Bathroom (The bathroom is optional and can be turned into the 4th bedroom)
– The Layout consists of a spacious Living Room, a kitchen with an attached dining room, 2 regular bedrooms (1 Downstairs, 1 Upstairs) a Master Bedroom with an optional Bathroom or Closet area, and 1 Optional Bathroom which could be turned into an additional bedroom.

– The Sliding doors in the living room retreat into a pocket in the wall, offering unobstructed views of the exterior, front and back for an indoor-outdoor living experience.

– The Pool (Materials Enabled) is optional. To correctly place the pool on terraformable land, you will have to create a hole in the ground. This will require some basic terraforming skills, but is otherwise pretty straightforward (I recommend using the “Select Land Tool” for a clean result)!

-The Pool should also work with Windlight water, if you remove the water prim that comes with it, and your region’s water height roughly matches the height your house is placed at.

– The Garden walls (Front and Back) are optional and easily removable.

As always, the house comes with an Interior Details HUD which includes 5 floor colors + an optional no bathroom version of the floors, as well as 5 ceiling beam colors.

Full and half texture resolution versions are included with the 2 Structures, with the latter being designed to prevent lag and/or texture thrashing on lower spec systems.

The Palo Alto house comes in two additional colors.

Time is like a river

Good morning!! To us Americans, a very Happy Fourth of July!! Now ideally many of us go to the river, the lake and beach to enjoy the celebrations.  Some enjoy the firework displays at home and a good ole barbecue.  I’m having the latter.  Bring on the fajitas, the drumsticks and grilled corn on the cob and much more.  Are you hungry yet? 😊

Today I’m showcasing a new home by Trompe Loeil, the Hyannis cottage is a cape cod style two story cottage and available in a light and natural color.  You have a main room downstairs with a fireplace with effects with the top having two rooms. Lots of extras so go take a closer look! The rowboat lounger is also available and both can be found at this round of UBER.

The beautiful rock and river display is the newest release by Studio Skye.  It’s gorgeous and seriously you have to go to their in-world location to see it first hand to get the effects of the flowing water sound effects.  The bottom two pictures are non edited other than blurring and the first shows you the materials with advanced lighting and the bottom without any lighting.

In-world location to view.

Enjoy!

Desolate beauty

Hello everyone!  Today I’m featuring a new build by Milk Motion, which has a story.  The name of the build is Kolmanskop, which is a ghost town in southern Namibia.  If you google the name you will find some fantastic pictures of buildings and homes that have been preserved due to the arid climate that are knee deep in sand.  It’s now a popular location for photographers who go to capture these images of the desert sands reclaiming the town.

Time to enjoy the outdoors

Happy Friday!  It’s definitely that time of year to enjoy the outdoors and I’ve got just the plan for you.  Take a bike ride and when you’ve had enough pedaling stop to rest and enjoy a picnic.

A garden is a friend you can visit anytime

Happy Friday!  Today’s picture is all about the outside.  If you’re an outdoors person and love gardening, then you must visit the Arcade before the month is over and take a chance on all the wonderful items to be found for the outdoors.  Plus a tree by Little Branch at this round of the men’s department.

Enjoy the weekend!

Is it the weekend yet?

It’s been a super busy week and not one of the best so I’m ready for the weekend and for several glasses of wine.  I tasted beer once and it was enough to know we would never be friends.

Check out this new amazing beer stand set by DRD at this current round of Uber.  I confess to using the soft linked version that came with my package and then added a few more pieces.

Details and taxi is below.
