So I have had a whole week off and hoped to get around to building but ended up just playing until Saturday when the building bug finally hit. Normally I take a lot longer to work on a house but a few Monster drinks (helps with focusing issues), a lot of sitting and what you get is a half finished house but hey, the half that is finished is pretty nice!
I got inspired by a pic of a house's facade, mainly the sloping roof line and I wanted to try my hand at recreating that. Roofs give me fits and this one still has a few minor graphical irritations but if you squint and zoom out you can't see them at all!
I only finished last night so I haven't uploaded yet, need to make sure it is harboring no sneaky hidden CC (except for the roof which I didn't want to compromise on, love the white trim).
So here are the bunch of pics, randomly presented and many very similar ones but hey. Sorry about the image warping in some of the pictures, I am sorely out of practice.
Have you ever seen the ceiling treatment be a dark stained wood over the porch? I have, and kind of obsessed with the look and feel. Had to include it here though almost always I just use white beadbord kind of ceilings on the covered porches and entries.
Now for the layers,
I really wanted to include an attic, buuuut, I didn't plan well and the attic got ditched and the basement was an afterthought and small, but hey - I got the roof!
The not an attic space but you can still store stuff up there just your sims can't get there...
And the scrunched up basement without exterior access and no windows. But there is a nifty ancient furnace down there thanks to unlocking the simport rewards. Not sure if it will transfer anyway but this thing makes a cool, if old looking, furnace. Try it out!
Alrighty, let's get out of the basement.
The entryway. Not functional seating but I want one of these in my real home. The little white door goes to the basement, we've already been there.
Standing in the entry area looking left toward the kitchen.
And at night without the glare.
An empty space across from the living room area. I decided against window treatments because I like the view even if it is of the street.
Ok, and a bunch from the bedrooms and bathrooms. Only one bedroom is sort of done, the bathrooms are done but all pretty much the same.
There are three bedrooms total, two full baths upstairs and a half bath downstairs with lots of room for future potty training, or to throw in a random shower if the house gets full of sims. The master bedroom area, though tiny, does have a small seating area which could be cleaned out to make room for a makeshift nursery close by.
And now for the last few to show where it is in my world and stuff. I don't remember the lot size but it is an odd one. Oh and there is a little shed in the back yard because my sims tend to collect stuff as they are played. It's also a nifty place to stick that pet hygienator thing that always looks oddball standing out in the open, unless you have a futuristic style home then it looks fine.
There you go, thanks for having a look!
I hope you like it and I hope it gives you some ideas of your own to build with.
