Ok Builders, I don't know if you guys will consider this a 'challenge' or not, but here ya go. It's not a long one but it'll keep you busy for a bit. It's simple in the concept but not exactly easy to do, though not too hard either.


Choose any ONE of the 40x30 sized lots. Can not be anything larger than that. ALL units MUST be built within the confines of this one single lot. You may use any cheat or Mod that does not interfere with the size of the lot. (Just in case there IS one out there.) Yes, this means you CAN use MOO if you wish.

Build :

10 individual housing units consisting of:

5 Units with 1 bedroom each.

5 units with 2 bedrooms each.

Out of the 5 units with 2 bedrooms, 2 of them MUST sleep a family of 4 or more. There must be at least 3 beds in these units.

1 Bedroom units must sleep at least 2 Sims.


All 10 of the Units MUST be only 1 story..., NO SECOND level to any of the units.

All units MUST be stand alone units. NO duplexes, NO apartments & NO condos.

All units MUST have a Kitchen, a Living Room & at least 1 Full Bathroom with shower and/or tub, sink and toilet.

All Kitchens must be complete with stove, fridge & sink and be fully functional for Sims to use.

All beds must be set so the Sim can use the bed.

Added: You may combine living rooms/kitchens & dining areas. However bed rooms and baths must be separate from the main ares of each unit.

The house must be fully functional for easy use by all Sims living there.

Each unit must be complete and decorated.

The unit park (lot) itself must be fully landscaped, decorated & ready for Sim use.

ENJOY.

P.s. Your build doesn't have to be in the style of a Mobile Home Park but it is this concept that gave birth to this challenge thus the name of Red.neck Arkateck.

    This does sound challenging. I sounds fun too. The name of your challenge is what caught my eye. I'm glad I looked. :)

    I am not a huge builder, but have gotten a little more into it with the Sims 4. Always was annoyed that when I messed up the whole room had to be demolished and now I can just move them! Will be trying this after the holidays-- won't have access to my game for a bit! :(

    This sounds like fun, may have to do this :) Would love it if You post pics here on this thread of your finished lots.

    I hate building. I hate it. But having played The Sims for long over a decade, I've decided that my personal goal for TS4 is to do things I don't usually like. This is the absolute perfect challenge to get me interested in building. Thank you for sharing! I'll bookmark and come back (one day in the future) to share my lot. :)

    Going to try this now. Is there a specific hashtag you want using when sharing to the gallery?

    Also, are we allowed combined rooms/open-plan designs, like kitchen-diners or kitchen-living-dining rooms?

    Building is one of my favorite parts of the game so this is right up my alley. Definitely going to be trying this out soon.

    Hi everyone...sorry about not getting back to you all until now. With everything going down...the holidays, patches and now GTW I've been out there in space somewhere. So now I've been going through my old post and finding where I needed to update. I'll post some pics of mine for you guys to see.

    Nice builds! They look fantastic!

    How about #arkateck ? If you want to use one...I would guess that one would be it. I'm guessing that all I have to do to set up a hashtag. Never made on before. I have a Twitter acc. but I'm not really into it...I'm a facebook person. You may have living room/kitchen/dining room combos. But bedrooms need to be separate rooms.
    Building is one of my favorite parts of the game so this is right up my alley. Definitely going to be trying this out soon.

    Good luck!

    @Trendnig - Do you know who Jeff Foxworthy is? If not, he's a comedian who has a "You might be a red.neck, if..." routine. You can google him if you're not sure. Very funny.

    I'm going to try this again now that we have lockable doors. Lets get building those trailer parks, folks! :p
    Then we can fill them with weird and wonderful characters to make our towns... Interesting...

    Having some fun with this one... sims aren't required to be comfortable, are they? ;)

    Edit: This reeeaaally makes me wish the game had bunk beds! I hadn't realized that it didn't until this challenge but now the lack of them makes me really sad :(
