How is this project going? We agreed on a two week deadline, which is now almost three weeks ago…
We have some concerns about the location of the homestead, especially in regards to the terrain and how the buildings fit into this.
Foundations like the ones pictured below are not in the Folde-style, especially the huge stone foundations on what are essentially huts. Besides this, these foundations just don’t look good. They look very out of proportion compared to the buildings and create a very weird dynamic between them, look at the stairs connecting the two stables together for example. I would also suggest sticking to one type of stone if foundations are needed. I would pick drystone, considering there is a quarry quite close in Aldburg and this material is also used in the city.
Now, how to fix this? I think that the current location is not very good for a homestead like this. I’d suggest moving it to the north-west, see below. This gives you a much flatter area and pretty much a blank canvas to work on.
Lastly, try to save as much buildings of the old location as possible and try to rearrange them into something more similar to the homesteads picture below. Look at the dynamic between the building and the interaction of the volumes and how these homesteads differ from yours. For example, almost all of the buildings are detached, a bit more spread out, and follow the curve of the road. The homesteads pictured are quite close to yours after all.

I hope I gave you enough feedback to turn this homestead into something beautifull and if you have any further questions feel free to respond here or send me a PM.
