Overview
Near the main market place of Carmalad, capital of the Enthronia Province in South Sarvonia, one will spot many colourful wood huts. One of them is stained bright styruine, and has a smallish extension to the hut – some may call it a wing. That is the home of Lia Diti, Carmaladian cloth dyer.

Location of the building
The busiest place in Carmalad is its marketplace – all the hustle and bustle is especially pronounced during the peak marketing hours. On its north-western edge are many wood-built houses. Travellers are frequently attracted by the variety of colours in the housing area, as the different owners of the house will stain their own house a different colour, shade or tone. Venturing into the second row of houses, one will spot a bright styruine hut, where wooden keepsakes and Carmaladian cloths can be bought, and also where the Ditis live.

Description
Outdoors
Houses are spread out from one another, so anyone visiting the Ditis’ home can be sure that they will have a wide lane to walk in. The sandy path is flanked by various colourful flowers, seeming to symbolise the prosperous dying trade in Carmalad.

As it is in the second row of houses, others’ houses can be found all around it. A purple one is in front, and a red one can be found behind the Ditis’. Directly beside are a yellow one and a pink one.

From the outside, the Ditis’ single-storey house seems just like any other house, except for its striking colour and the extra room that sticks out on the right. That extra room is Lia’s and her mother’s cloth dying room. Three steps from the lane will bring the visitor to the front door of the house, as the house is elevated by 1 ped from the ground. Without the dying room, the house measures 5 peds by 6 peds. The dying room measures 2 peds by 1 ped, while the verandah is 1 ped wide, and surrounds the whole house.

A rocking chair, with a small table by its side and a table lamp on top, can be found on the verandah. Walking towards the left, one will find a ladder-like device. It is much wider and shorter than a normal ladder, and is made for hanging wet clothes out to dry.

The house’s thatched roof insulates the house regardless of the weather but is vulnerable to fire.

Indoors
When one enters the Ditis’ house, he will be in the house’s common area. Throughout the house, one can admire various intricate wood carvings and decorations on the walls. Lights are also installed on the ceiling of every room. Beside the door hangs a picture of the Ditis, when Lia was still a child. A 7-ped by 2-ped window looks out to the neighbouring house on the right. A rectangular wooden table stands in the middle of the large space, and three chairs surround it, one for each of the house’s dwellers. Each chair has a cushion on it, each cushion a different shade of styruine.

To the left of the common area, a sliding door opens to reveal the kitchen. Walking into the kitchen, the cooking area would be on one’s right. Utensils and crockery are kept in a small storage area below the stoves. Cutlery is stored in drawers beside the storage areas. Above the stoves is a shelving area for wet kitchenware. Dry foodstuff is kept in a cabinet beside the shelving area, together with any herbs or medicines. The wash basin is at the furthest corner of the cooking area, and a 7-ped by 1-ped window is located on the wall beside it.

Opposite the wash basin is a door that leads to the kitchen toilet. Also known as the common toilet among the Ditis, this is the toilet that everyone uses. Lia’s toiletries are placed neatly on the wash basin, and her towel hangs on one of the walls. A bucket is filled with water, ready to be used for bathing. A chamber pot is also found near the wash basin.

Returning back to the common area, and moving to the furthest corner of the house from the door, opposite the dying room, brings one to the master bedroom. A large bed lies towards the left side of the room, its head against the furthest wall. A bedside table stands on each side of the bed. This is Lia’s parents’ (Michael Diti and Penny Kopiya Diti) room. Curtains cover the windows beside the bed. A painting done for Michael and Penny during their wedding hangs on the wall beside the door. A wardrobe stands beside the window, and inside are all of Michael’s and Penny’s clothes. On the left side of the room, a door leads to the master bedroom toilet, used only by Michael and Penny. The layout in the toilet is similar to that of the common toilet.

The room next to Lia’s parents’ room is her own room. The two bedrooms are not connected – the only door in Lia’s room leads out to the common area. The head of her bed is against the right wall. Beside it is a dresser, and in the drawer of the dresser, she keeps her most precious items, like her styruine wooden bird. A wardrobe stands opposite her bed. When it is opened, a mess of colours faces whoever is in the room. Bandannas are laid on one level of the wardrobe, while smocks and other clothes are hung on hangers. A window looks out to the back of the house in Lia’s room.

The last room on the ground floor is the dying room, where Lia, and sometimes her mother, dyes cloths to sell. The originally styruine walls are now all spotted and flecked with paint. This is the only room without any wooden decorations, as the lovely work would have been destroyed by any stray paint. Kept in the room are a dying cauldron and various dyes bought from the marketplace. Due to a lack of wash basins in the room, Lia and Penny will take note to bring in a large bucket of water before commencing any dying.

The Ditis’ house is single-storey, but since it is elevated, Michael included a basement when he built the house. Spiral stairs on the left side of the house brings one down to the basement, which is rather sparse. The leftmost side of the room has three spaces blocked off for pipes that bring waste water down to the ground. Between two of those spaces is a wood store, where Michael stores wood he uses to make small keepsakes.

In the space directly below the common area, woodwork and cloths are put on display, for visitors and prospective customers to admire, feel, and consider buying. The wooden keepsakes are kept in a cabinet made of wood, with a glass door. Cloths are hung on clothes racks.

Two guest rooms are directly below the bedrooms on the ground floor, and both are of the same size as Lia’s room. The two rooms have similar layouts. The upper half of the 2-ped high basement is still aboveground, so a 1-ped long window is there to let in light during the mornings, and for ventilation. The single bed in each room is arranged against a wall. A small bedside table stands beside the bed. A wardrobe stands opposite the bed. When looking at floor plans, the two rooms are directly symmetrical.

Below the dying room is the woodwork room, where Michael makes the keepsakes for sale. He keeps his tools in a toolbox on a table, where the unfinished works are also placed. There is also a chair in the room.

NPCs
Michael Diti
Michael is Lia’s father, and the master of the house. He is slightly taller than Lia, and has the same-coloured hair as hers. Once a well-known wood worker, he now only works part-time, due to his age. At 62, he is considered rather old, and his reflexes aren’t as well now either. Michael specialises in small woodcraft, and works in the woodwork room in the basement.

Michael is generally a cheerful person, unless someone wrecks his hard work, or insults him. When he is incensed, his temper is intimidating. His loud booming voice is his trademark – one usually hears him before one sees him.

Penny Kopiya Diti
Penny, Lia’s mother, is quiet, very much unlike Michael. She was once a cloth dyer, like Lia, but slowed her pace of work when she contracted the Sleep-Ill Disease. She goes on a routine of consuming daylong flower in the morning, and Eyasha’s breath at night, to maintain her sleep cycle as per normal.

Penny is about the same height as Lia, and has strawberry blonde locks. People often say that mother and daughter look alike, with just a difference in the hair colour. Though rather reserved, Penny is friendly in entertaining the guests who come to their house. She sometimes still helps Lia with dying cloths in the dying room.

I will make edits in cyan for you...

Overview
Near the main market place of Carmalad, capital of the Enthronia Province in South Sarvonia, one will spot many colourful wood huts. One of them is stained bright styruine, and has a smallish extension to the hut – some may call it a wing. That is the home of Lia Diti, Carmaladian cloth dyer.

Without the dying room, the house measures 5 peds by 6 peds. The dying room measures 2 peds by 1 ped, while the verandah is 1 ped wide, and surrounds the whole house.

Good use of Santharian measurements

A rocking chair, with a small table by its side and a table lamp on top, can be found on the verandah. Walking towards the left, one will find a ladder-like device. It is much wider and shorter than a normal ladder, and is made for hanging wet clothes out to dry.

The house’s thatched roof lends it a rustic look, everybody uses thatch so it may not look rustic to he average santharian and also insulates the house regardless of the weather. It is, however, vulnerable to fire.

Indoors
When one enters the Ditis’ house, he will be in the house’s common area. Throughout the house, one can admire various intricate wood carvings and decorations on the walls. Lights are also installed on the ceiling of every room. Beside the door hangs a picture of the Ditis, when Lia was still a child. A 7-ped by 2-ped window looks out to the neighbouring house on the right. A rectangular wooden table stands in the middle of the large space, and three chairs surround it, one for each of the house’s dwellers. Each chair has a cushion on it, each cushion a different shade of styruine.

To the left of the common area, a sliding door opens to reveal the kitchen. Walking into the kitchen, the cooking area would be on one’s right. Utensils and crockery are kept in a small storage area below the stoves. Cutlery is stored in drawers beside the storage areas. Above the stoves is a shelving area for wet kitchenware. Dry foodstuff is kept in a cabinet beside the shelving area, together with any herbs or medicines. The sink is at the furthest corner of the cooking area, and a 7-ped by 1-ped window is located on the wall beside it.

Opposite the sink is a door that leads to the kitchen toilet. Also known as the common toilet among the Ditis, this is the toilet that everyone uses. Lia’s toiletries are placed neatly on the sink, and her towel hangs on one of the walls. A bucket is filled with water, ready to be used for bathing. A squat toilet is also found near the sink.

Unfortunately, toilets have not been invented yet in santharia, along with sinks. You could use chamber pot or wash basin instead.

Returning back to the common area, and moving to the furthest corner of the house from the door, opposite the dying room, brings one to the master bedroom. A large bed lies towards the left side of the room, its head against the furthest wall. A bedside table stands on each side of the bed. This is Lia’s parents’ (Michael Diti and Penny Kopiya Diti) room. Curtains cover the windows beside the bed. A photo also a tad modern taken during Michael’s and Penny’s wedding hangs on the wall beside the door. A wardrobe stands beside the window, and inside are all of Michael’s and Penny’s clothes. On the left side of the room, a door leads to the master bedroom toilet, used only by Michael and Penny. The layout in the toilet is similar to that of the common toilet.

The room next to Lia’s parents’ room is her own room. The two bedrooms are not connected – the only door in Lia’s room leads out to the common area. The head of her bed is against the right wall.
