Avenden Cottage – Builders Box…

Raindale have created the 'Avenden' Cottage, exclusively for Builder's Box!

The 'Avenden' Cottage has a land impact of 83, plus there is 15LI to be added if you use the porch lanterns and the optional string lights.  The footprint measures 26M X 22M approx, and has its own rez box, for easy placement.

Ample interior space, with the attic upstairs, and a gorgeous spacious terrace at the back of the build. The ground floor is all open plan living ..with a staircase to the back of the cottage, that leads to the room attic.  The cottage is vintage in style, and gorgeous colour scheme.  There is a small front porch, and the cottage comes with its own string lighting with a hud to turn on and off, and of course, the intensity of lighting.  

Builders Box is a quarterly subscription box, which aims to provide high quality builds, from both new, and already established creators. Ten creators all up, each with their own unique style - quite exciting really!!  The builds themselves will be varied, an an example, skyboxes, homes, and perhaps even business builds.  

Previous Builders Boxes can be found 'here' in Market Place

Information, can be found on the Builders Box website 'here'

or visit in-world headquarters 'here'

unKindness are at Famehed this round (hurry as its soon closing) with a really amazing 'Manor Fence Set'.  This set is just gorgeous, the beautiful textures, and the iron work with rust spots look so real.  Easy to build, with options for full bright to be turned off the round portion of the fence set - when full bright is on, it looks like globes of light .... very pretty.  Also, included is the Lamp Stone Bases, with gorgeous lamps for featuring pathways, or home entrances.  The set also includes a 'destroyed set' which is a darker colour ....

Builder's Box is a brand new quarterly subscription box which started in May, packed full of nothing but homes, sky-boxes & other builds from 10 great creators.

The Arthur Cottage was created by Sway's, who do some pretty amazing builds and creations.  There is a series of various colours available when you unpack the box, including - berry, grass, natural, ocean, sky, and sun. There is a single room inside, with large windows, and an upstairs loft area, with a ladder.  Touching the inside wall, brings up the menu to colour change the interior walls - 12 all up, including some nice patterns.  I must also add, that each of the colours of the cottages, comes with various colours for the inside - not all are the same. Land Impact is 23 plus 1 for the ladder, measuring 12.5 X 9 M and 7.3 M - can be resized, but as always, resizing can impact the LI.

Flamingo Cove…

DAD Design has a beautiful exclusive release for Fameshed which opened its doors on the 1st of July, and runs through till the 27th.  The 'Summertime Cottage' has a footprint of 21 X 20 and a land impact of 173, and this build can be resized.  Also included in the package, but not featured is 4 'blowing curtains', these look amazing and I will feature them close up sometime in the near future - please see vendor image below for details.  It is a beautiful build, purposely for a beach home and consists of a large veranda for entertaining and the pergola roof has bamboo shades which look gorgeous and realistic.  Upon entering the cottage you have a large living area, which on either side branch off to two further rooms - kitchen, dinning and a bedroom.  All windows can be opened, and arranged to various heights for realism.   Another great feature is the bonus of being able to tint the interior and exterior walls to your own choice of colour.   Floors can be changed as well, and simple instructions to do so are giving in the NC in the package.  The cottage comes with security access, which can be changed to suit your needs.  Call on over to Fameshed, to see the demo available....

The below items can all be found at Summerfest 2017.

Jammin, have a fantastic fence set, the 'Wood and Rope Fencing', which is a perfect addition to any build, or beach scene.  This set has been designed to create a low impact fence system which has alignment flags to help in the build process.  Total of 5 mesh components - the fence post, ropes in 1, 2 and 4M lengths and an addition loop rope for embellishing if needed.  Each piece, is .5LI, and when linked reduces LI.  

Nomad have a beautiful 'Bohemian Beach Set' which consists of lounging chairs and sunshade umbrella's.  There is a variety of pretty colours available with unique patterns: Blue, Green, Orange, Pink, and White.  The sunshade umbrella's come in two versions, tilted and upright.  Poses, include couples, for cuddles, and a variety (21) single sits.

Calm have the 'Summer Solstice' Wall art piece, which looks amazing in its texture - worn through the ocean, and pitted brass.  I hope to show this in closer detail soon...but have included the vendor image for close up detail. 

Jian, as always have created up a storm with the 'Flamingo Collection' includes 10 static flamingo's in various stances, as well as 2 wanderer versions - preening or feeding.  The touch menu allows for resize and choosing the right natural flamingo texture .. they are so delightful, love them.

Blue Sky have a sweet set, with many options available, I have featured the Surfboard Chalkboards 'Be a Mermaid' and 'You had me at Aloha' ....

O.M.E.N have the 'Summer Vespa' Motorbike at Summerfest 2017, which is meant to be worn, though I used the item as a decor item piece.  This item is meant to be used for wearing, and riding and has a sweet little puppy in the front basket .... so cute!

PILOT have the "Tropical Shade Pack' available at Summerfest 2017, with 4 varying designs - flamingo/tropical, flamingo, topical and featured is the natural/leather.   These are can be resized to fit windows and awnings, and look amazing in all the designs available.

hive have the 'lifeguard chair' available for Fifty Linden Friday .. rush over and see if it is still available, and if not, it still is worth paying full price.   In the pack, are two versions, the 2nd version has a sign hanging off the back of the chair, saying the beach is closed, and no swimming.   The textures are of worn wood, and very true to as you'd see in real life.   The chair comes with male (8) and female(8) single poses, as well as three couples poses.  

I've also featured some of my favorite pieces from Dust Bunny, the gorgeous lighthouse, and numerous items from various gacha's I have collected over the years.

A Pretty Place to Unwind…

LAGOM created for the Builders Box, the 'Daphne Cottage', which has an amazing low land impact of only 17.  I featured the inside in an earlier post, which can be viewed 'here', and today featuring the outside, and what a gorgeous build it is.   The cottage is small, but has ample room to create a nice homey interior.  The textures are beautiful and it hosts the most gorgeous feature windows, some of which can only be viewed from the inside.    

Builder's Box is a brand new quarterly subscription box which started in May, packed full of nothing but homes, sky-boxes & other builds from 10 great creators. Featuring a mix of both established & newer stores, Builder's Box aims to provide a wide variety of builds from designers who each have their own unique, individual style.
