I am a big believer in redesigning slowly, in sections. I have a friend that had a lovely town & she wiped it, it has never looked the same since. I like working in small sections because I keep the end result in mind. I have a newer town that I designed knowing better where my focus is. 3+ years ago we didn't have 122 fields to fit in, so I've made the farm the priority, giving it plenty of space to expand & incorporating a lot more water. We didn't have ducks or otters back then so that's one big redesign
