Yeah, I still love Blaine Candour's dancing cow.
So I went back to the sandbox and tried building a larger skybox. Now even I am aware of the 10m size limit for prims. So what I did was try to build a 12x12 "flat" that I could use to build a larger structure. Doing the 12x12 took 4 prims, I then used that to build a 24x12x12 skybox. much more space than the 10x10 288 vs 100 square meters. But it was 32 prims just for the skybox which isn't bad, I've seen 512 "First Land" houses for sale that eat more prims, but it's still a little too much more than I wanted to use. So I went back to the sandbox and figured out how to build a 30x10x10 with only 5 prims. Much better.
Back when I was a newbie, when the Tete a Pied Une series skins was for sale, one way you could purchase them was by buying a four=pack which then came with a special scripted makeup box, which let you purchase the other skins or new skins in your skin shade at a heavily discounted price.

Now when I got the makeup box, I told Roslin and CJ that I thought the box was just so darned cool and pretty that if I ever had a place of my own that I'd set it out on display, which I did.
But it's still rather bland, and has no ceiling or security. I've been looking around at houses and whatnot, but not finding much that will suit my purposes. I want a more open floor plan so I can set up my Picture Perfect and I don't want to have to pay alot and I want it to be low prim and aesthetically pleasing. Ingrid Ingersoll has some nice houses but there' more prims than I want to use. Barnesworth Anubis's store is shut down at the moment, so I couldn't look there. I went to a place that supposedly had a nice starter home with a build in security and feature device but the home mentioned in the review was not available as far as I could tell.
Sabrina Doolittle of Chez Petite fame has some nice prefabs on her sim, Calla, in fact the Sky House prefab is very close to what I'm looking for (It's only 27 prims too) except I think it's a touch smaller area wise than my skybox. I want the maximum amount of space I can get for the lowest amount of prims I can get. So if anyone has some thoughts, suggestions, ideas, I'll take them since I'm so out of my element in the house hunting/furnishing/building thing. I think the plot I can build over is a standard 512 32x16
