The mountain retreat has arrived! I welcome you to the humble retreat laying on top of a hill next to a lovely snowy forest and an icy lake.

The house is made up completely by myself, the design and purpose of the building is to make it look like a secure fortress on the hill, a bit like The Kremlin if you will.

The house features a nice bedroom with a huge and open dressing room with a grand view. It has many balconies and sweet and comfortable couching areas all over the house. In the cellar you will also be able to find some nice old bottles of wine, cognac and whiskey, perfect for a lovely evening!

- Just added a sweet little render of the upper floor I mentioned. As you can see, the view is pretty neat! :)

Hey Denux. I turned your ultra modern, beautiful retreat into a haunted mansion from hell. I don't know if you watch Minecraft machinima, but this map was the main piece of real estate for my new horror series.

Btw, I don't know if you still remember me, but we've exchanged messages in the past about me using your maps. Anyways, proper credits have been given in the video description and just so you know, it was amazing working with your map. Here's the link to the video if you're interested; Horror Craft - E01 - "The Job"

Wow! It's amazing man! :D Thank you so much for using my map, I'm very humbled about that! :D

Great episode too, I really liked it!
Humbled? Don't be, you're one of the most amazing Minecraft creators out there and believe me I've seen enough people that do some incredible works, that they really should be classified as artists.

You pay attention to the smallest details, from the terrains, biomes, nearby waters, to even plants. I notice all those efforts you've made and I can't help but appreciate your works. Thanks again for allowing me to use your creations and please don't stop making your fantastic maps.

Dude you want your custom map to become a movie?
Were gonna make one its about Herobrine.
It all started in a abandoned mansion(Which is yours).
The main character is me (Jc).
Found a mansion he started to live there and noticed creepy sounds coming
from the basement,doors opening and worst of all screaming people.
Stay tuned to watch the movie.

I am not used to give advices to awesome builders like you but, I will do it. I personally think, sir, that some shapes with spruce wood, as pillars, or some ice, would incredibly improve this build. Such a pale palette doesn't make the house look like it really is. :)

Well first of all thank you very much Guillem!

I always put a lot of thought behind my designs, but I am always open to critical views.
Could you please ellaborate the "shapes" with spruce wood and ice?

About the pillars, I don't know if you've actually downloaded the house, but there are a lot of big stone pillars located in the house which helps keep the roof and upper floor intact.

Then it is perfect then, but personally I would have used another palette ( the house will be epic anyways if it comes from you).

A and thank you very much to call me Guillem ! You're the first one on this site that calls me with my real name :3
