Looking better, you’re on the right path. Few things:
-Your roof shape is steeper which is good, but avoid making the roofs curve or dip as it looks unrealistic. Curvy roofs work fine for elves but with Men we prefer to keep them a bit more tame and simply make them more complex. Take inspiration from the houses currently in Dale.
-Try a gradient in your foundation, generally it adds more interest to an otherwise single, flat, texture.
-Try making your house a bit larger.
-Regarding interiors, always line your roofs with another material, wood planks, etc. IRL tiles are always going to be resting on a structure, a lattice, wooden beams, etc.
Otherwise looking good, keep up the work and i’m sure you’ll be building in Dale soon enough.
Your interiors could still use some work. Check Bree for Inspiration.
-Avoid flat ceilings. Use stairs and beam blocks to make them look well supported. You see this in most all interiors, Men, Elves, etc.
-Keep things on the more cramped side rather than open. Add some walls to divide large rooms up into multiple smaller ones. Add tables and cupboards, bookcases to appropriate areas to furnish it. Add more carpets and maybe some loose papers and hay strewn about the floor.
As you van see that had been 19 days before you replyed and in the meantime i have made some builds on my plot tot try soms stuff and then i have had been in denmark for a week, so i have been inective then but i have one week without school ahead of me so i will probbably be more active then
One suggestion I have would be to not recede your foundation behind beams, or even necessarily include beams on the exterior of the on the base floor/foundation. Sometimes just a box shaped stone foundation with a gradient and detailing looks best.
That being said your house looks great! I think it’s probably more than enough to get you builder.
