This is a house that I built - i have seen many other houses like this on mocpages, and i liked them a lot and those inspired me to build one like this. I also looked at those pictures to help me as a guide. I lack bricks to make houses, it's true. But regardless, I don't understand how i receive such a low rating! I think it is fairly gorgeous. I will probably remake it sometime then and see if opinions will change.
Right now the King lives in it. I actually don't have houses for my peasants lol they sleep under the stars!
It is true that comparing to MOCs from people who can pick from 50.000+ parts, it is quite poor, but regarding to how much parts you seem to have, it is quite nice.
You could perhaps have made the sustaining wood with 2x1 logs instead of reversed slopes, and go on with black (easier to get) to figure wood in the upper part of the house.
Also, with the roof, if you don't have enough angle parts, just make it two opposing slopes, and then, you can insert some touches of brown on the wall sides of the roof.
Keep on building!
