Are there any styles that you excel at? Any styles which you have difficulty with?: None in particular either way. I’m a fast learner.

Rudimentary knowledge of plants
I am studying Music Composition. Whether or not that can be helpful, I’ll let you decide.
It appears that you don’t have our resource packs on. Do /warp rptest on the server to work it out.
I’ll let someone else critique your build.
That’s fixed now. Do you want me to re-take the pictures?
Your interior is far too plain. Could you please spend time looking around Dale and re-try the interior?
I’ll pitch some suggestions. Your overall shape is good and your roof is rather well done. Your walls could use some work imo though.
Try not to recede the plaster behind beams, it’s more realistic to keep them flat and in line with each other. Plus it helps make your walls look less gridlike.
Try to distract from any grid patterns you make. There’s a million ways to do this. You can make your walls entirely tudor, replacing beams with boxed tudor. Or you can simply cover this up using flower boxes, ivy, bay windows, shutters, etc. You can also get creative with beam placement and make T and Cross sections instead of just grids to support your floors.
Change your wall texture to a colored stucco or tudor. The texture you used is really reserved for elven builds (grey havens specifically).
Also look into using CTM in your windows. The window textures have some cool connections and you can use them in a lot of ways.
Apply a gradient to your foundation. Don’t just keep it 1 texture! Mix it with mossy, cracked cobblestone, or other stone types. We have thousands of blocks, utilize them!
Won’t comment on interiors as it’s not my forte. I’d start by /warp Bree or /warp Dale and just check out some of the houses. Good examples of ways to be creative within a given style.
I’ve completely overhauled my house. Here are the updated photos: https://imgur.com/a/JugbW
I’m sorry but this is still not up to standard, I am going to reject this app, I suggest you spend a lot more time looking around before you bother to re-apply.
