    Happy Sunday, folks!

    I went for another walk recently (it was a lovely day. We've had real nice weather lately!) and I saw another neat house. I decided to build something similar to it. This house is called Pleasant House and it's available for download on the gallery under Lyoufln. The house is partially furnished (bathrooms, lights, plus half of kitchen). It uses stuff from Parenthood and Toddler Stuff (I only used the fence from Toddler Stuff, so it's not that big of a deal if you don't have the pack).

    This house has a fireplace, chimney, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one comes with a funky blue toilet :) ) and a garden patch. Hope you enjoy it!

    The exterior design of Pleasant House is very nice! :) The type of windows used looks nice and the flowers either sides of the front pathway are pretty for sims to see when coming to the home. Very nice layout of the interior of the home. It is great that there is a basement level. Simmers will enjoy downloading the home and furnishing it suit the needs and interests of their sims household. The floral wallpattern in the living room looks pretty. Very nice backyard garden area! The flowers look very pretty!
    It is a very nice home :)

    G'evenin' folks!

    I'm not used to warm-weather type of houses (like those with terracotta roofs), but after seeing some real ones, I decided to build one in TS4. This house is called the Heat Wave, and it can be found on the gallery under Lyoufln. It has 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom. There is no custom content, and I didn't use moveObjects (but I may have used the alt/option key a few times). I also made non-functional objects bigger/smaller or decoration.

    The only items used from the Toddler Stuff pack are the outdoor light poles, so don't worry if you're missing that pack. I just put them out there in the backyard so that you could set a pool and a bar for a party! In addition, this house is less than 20,000 simoleons, so it'd be a decent starter house for a single sim or a couple.

    Enjoy! :)

    The design of Heat Wave is very nice! :) Very nice upper patio for Sims to enjoy sitting resting on the seating, looking out at the views. Very nice layout of the interior. Sims will enjoy sitting on the sofa having a read of a book from the bookcase. The cactus isca nice touch in the corner nook. It is nice that there are large windows near the dining and kitchen area , for Sims to enjoy the sunlight coming in when cooking and dining there. The colour of the bedroom walls gives a very nice look to the room.
    It is a very nice starter home :)

    Really love the colour scheme and floor design for the first house!
    I for one use MOO a lot so it's good to see someone who doesn't and makes an awesome functioning building. xD You really have a good eye for coziness.
    Keep moving forward.

    Thanks @saishou! Sometimes I use the option/alt key when I'm placing stuff (like if something's too close to a wall using the traditional grid, or I want a painting in a specific place), but I've never used MOO. I also use the resizing tool as well, but never with functional objects (mostly used for landscaping).

    Thanks for stopping by. I'm glad you like it! :)

    G'evening folks!

    Did you grow up or currently lived in a rural area/really tiny town? Remember those blissfully peaceful nights in the summer when the sky’s just turning pink? The whole world starts slowing down and cooling a bit. Birds start heading home while the starts and moon start coming out? Crickets start chirping in the long grasses too, right?

    Those types of evenings are the best!

    I saw a house when I went for a walk last week so I decided to get building (though this doesn’t look much like the one I saw). This place was built on a 30x20 lot and it’s called Nights with Crickets , available on the gallery under Lyoufln. I didn’t use move objects, but some items were moved around with the option/alt key, and a couple things like decorative rocks have be resized.

    Anyway, Nights with Crickets has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and is fully furnished. It looks super cozy in the evenings/night in my game. I run on low settings, so if it looks nice in my game, it’s gonna look 100x better in yours!

    Nights with Crickets is a very nice home! :) It was very special and lovely what you wrote for the background setting details about the build <3 The flowers along the front and side edges of the home and the flower wheel cart look very pretty! Sims will enjoy cooking on the bbq outdoors in the air. Very nice layout of the interior of the home! The open plan kitchen, dining and living areas look nice
    Very nice homestyle kitchen. The knives block and utensils are great kitchen touches, and the diferent coloured dining chairs are a nice touch. Very nice living room area. Sims will enjoy sitting resting on the sofas reading a book or have fun playing chess. The orange flowers wall picture is a sunny touch. The floral wall pattern in the master bedroom looks very pretty and the tropical beach picture in the kids bedroom is a nice touch.
    It is a very nice home for a family of sims :)
  • LyouflnLyoufln Posts: 5,906 Member
    Thank you very much @rosemow. I really like the little bits of orange here and there too. I'm really happy how the landscaping at the front and side of the house turned out too. I'm very proud of it :)

    G'evening folks!

    My sims Sage and Valentin (in my current profile pic) are getting older. All three of their children are young adults now (they're in my current signature), but the youngest still lives with them because she's continuing her studies at a local university and its cheaper to live at home (story-wise). Sage and Valentin wanted to move because the house they had been living in for years was just too big for the three of them, and they will likely soon be empty-nesters. This place is a little smaller than their old one.

    The house is called Purple Palace and it's available on the Gallery under Lyoufln. There are 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom (located upstairs). Included with the house is a started garden, Sage's artwork, a nice seating area outdoors, and much more! This vibrant house would be really great for your artsy/eclectic sims! :)

    The exterior design of Purple Palace is very nice! :) The curved roofing is great! Very nice layout of the interior levels. The kitchen and dining area is very nice. The stone texture of the walls looks great, and the type of dining seats used looks homely. Sims will enjoy the sunshine coming in through the windows whilst cooking meals. The sunflower wall picture and the rose on the bedside table in one of the bedrooms is sunny and pretty for sims to see when waking in the mornings. Very nice upper level armchairs sitting and chatting corner nook. Very nice outdoors areas! Sims will enjoy painting on the easel , growing and harvesting plants in the garden nook or enjoy playing chess on the chess table, in the outdoors air.
    It is a very nice home! :)

    Hello! I made this house awhile ago, but it's the main house I play with in TS4. It's my sims Briar and Leslie's house, along with their three daughters Lyra (child), Juniper (in pink), and Wren (in orange). I apologize for picture quality. I love this family to bits, and I've put a lot of time and effort into their home.

    Briar and Leslie moved out here right before Lyra was born. The house was old and didn't have much. They've done some painting and wallpaper stripping, and the house looks great now!
    eqI88Da.png

    It's (creatively :p) called Briar & Leslie's on the gallery under Lyoufln. The house is fully furnished, with 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. There are also 2 closets, a tomato plant and cherry tree, postcards, a fireplace/chimney, Briar's rocket, a crafting table, artwork from Briar's mother, and lots more.

    Briar and Leslie’s is a very nice home! :) It looks homely and nice. Very nice design of the exterior of the home. The wall textures give a great look to the home, and the flower box windows look pretty! It is great that there is a rocket in the outdoors. Kids would have fun playing on the monkey bars and the slide. Very nice layout and furnishing of the interior of the home. The kitchen is very nice. It is nice the type of stove used, and Sims would enjoy sunshine coming in through the kitchen windows whilst cooking meals. The teapot wall cabinet is a nice home touch. Very nice family room for sims to enjoy sitting relaxing on the sofa in front of the fire, or for the kids to have fun playing with toys from the chest or using the building blocks table. Very nice furnishing of the bedrooms. The floral wall pattern in the master bedroom looks very nice.
    It is a very nice family home! :) The kids are cute!

    Thank you @rosemow. I'm glad you like my little sim family and house. They're like my favourite household (and extended family) ever in any sims game, and I've been playing the sims on-and-off for somewhere between 10 and 12 years!
