Here is my attempt at recreating the house where I grew up in. Dating from the mid 19th century, it used to be a summer house for a wealthy Dutch family that would come to Brussels for a break from the Netherlands.
I had difficulties in finding the correct textures for my house and even when I fell upon the textures that resembled reality, they somehow seemed distant. The chimney also posed issue, since I was unable to extrapolate a 2D square on an inclined plane into a box which is parallel to the z axis. I had to delete my roof, and build the chimney on a flat plane.
