First topic message reminder :
A cozy place, with loaded bookshelves lining most of the walls. What walls aren't covered up with bookshelves or a few assorted wall coverings, are a warm offwhite color, giving the whole place a feeling of relaxed comfort. While one story, the ceilings are a bit high, with exposed rafters of a well-polished wood, as well as the entrance to a balcony which is a favored take-off and landing point. There's no stairs up to this balcony though, so if Yorick wants to get up there Ally has to carry her.
The kitchen is well-outfitted, including a walk in refridgerator for storing copious amounts of ingredients for whatever Yorick and Ally might want to cook, or just snack on.
The couple has lived in this place since they were the ripe old age of 25, and have never stopped accumulating books, knickknacks, pictures, or really anything else. The place is full to the brim, but there's always space to move, and always a way to get to anything in any room without having to move much stuff. An orderly mess.
Their bedroom has hardly changed in all of these years, as well. While they have changed mattresses a few times, they are still sleeping on the same bedframe that they first slept together on, Yorick still has the same pistol hidden under her side of the matress in case of intruders, and the music box that Yorick made and proposed to Ally with is still sitting on Ally's bedside table.
Outside, separated by a somewhat-well-kept lawn, is the side building holding Yorick's workshop. While she does a lot of her goldsmith projects in the house, since it's much cozier, she decided that she didn't want the heat of the forges inside the house, and set up this building. This is where she assembles her guns, as well, and for those she teaches her trades, this is usually where they will meet her. A firing range has also been dug out beneath it to keep the sound down. The length is extensive, and being underground it doesn't have wind throwing off those long shots. She refuses to let any defective weapons leave her workshop.
