Oak Alley Plantation is surely the United States' second most recognizable plantation, right after Jefferson's Monticello. It was built in 1837 by the architect Joseph Pilié for the brother-in-law of a wealthy surgarcane magnate, Jacques Roman. It's situated near the Mississippi River in Vacherie, Louisiana. Originally it was called The Bon Séjour Plantation, before the house was built, but it later came to be known as Oak Alley for its prominant 28 oak trees that line the home's approach from the Mississippi River.

I built it to the best of my ability, down to the smallest details. Unfortunately, I didn't know what the inside looked like, so I came up with my own design from the few facts I knew. Each floor has a different "theme" of material and color.

Sadly, I don't know how to make custom trees, so there aren't any oaks. I don't intend to build furniture for this house, I kind of like it empty.

Let me know what you think!

Quite a nice build I wish i could have this for my survival. Also if you have McEdit there is a filter that allows you to make trees just play around with it till you get the combination that makes you happy.

Thank you for the suggestion, I'll try that.  By the way, I'd like to put many of my builds up for download but I'm trying to find the best way to do it.  It's a bit silly to create individual flatland worlds for each of my creations.  I currently have many of them in the same worlds.

An easy way to do that would be by dividing the world with schematics and also if your trying to make an custom terrain use a fusion of the erode tool and the smooth filter
