Can you pinpoint what exactly you dislike? The material choice, mud, or the whole timber-framing thing? I guess I’m sort of the one who brought up the whole style, I saw the mud tudor in Ben’s earlier concepts and still in the material list in the rohanguide and in Ben’s outline, it was okay for the deeping valley to have some tudor. I chose the mud tudor in particular, because I felt it looked even simpler/older than the standard white tudor which has a more medieval feel to them in my eyes, look at Bree.
If it’s about the timber-framing, this style was created when the mud tudor did not connect yet and I think, the timber-framing gives a lot more opportunities to make each house a little more unique than just having Bree-styled vertical posts, like a lot of the pictures below show. Remember those were also incorporated in some houses in one form or the other. There is also a bit of variation with the staves block as main housing material around, and since the rohan style in that area was never meant to use the log walls because it should feel different to the Beorning styles, there is really little other materials/block I can see fit.
In regards to the colour, I think, with the right materials and ratio, this colour could happen. If you say the geography is not right for it, I’m sorta open to suggestions. I’m saying “sorta” at this point, since most of these projects have their threads closed for over a week now, so the apps are closer to 2-3 weeks old already.
Examples of the colour
I know this is sort of the wrong country and maybe time, but the material composition could be right in the area too.
