    Welcome!

    “That sounds perfect,” says Ginny. “What I’d really love is a country-style house with a cottage garden. I just adore flowers. In fact, I’d be just as happy relaxing outside in the garden as I would inside.”


    STYLE - Country with cottage garden
    BUDGET - 16,500
    Due Date: by Midnight, May 25th - Central Standard Time

    Clarification "country cottage" or as stated "Country with a cottage garden"??

    Because it says country, but then the pics in the links are showing something else

    Good point, ZY. When I came up with this challenge, I was thinking "cottage", but I did put "country." I think there are many different types of cottages which could be interpreted as "country" including the French Country, English Country, and even American Country types of cottages. I'll leave that interpretation pretty open to the individual. As long as it's country and/or cottage-y you should be okay :)

    Hello BuildNShare! Good to see these challenges are still alive and kicking. Also Congrats on the newest Member of the team. I am sure Addict will be teaching her little one building basics before too long. :lol:

    Was looking for the pics and discovered that the actual entry link was okay but this link does not go to the album.

    Hmmmm... without seeing any of your other work, I'd say you'd fit in quite easily in Intermediate. Possibly even advanced if you feel up to it :)

    Thanks, KittKat! It's been so long since I've participated, and back then I think there were 5 levels and I was in intermediate-advanced...lol. I'll go wherever the judges think I should go, or wherever needs more contestants.

    Optional Challenge: n/a

    Level: uh... Intermediate.

    Lot size, address & final cost: 55 Water Lily Lane, Sunset Valley. 20x30. $16,441

    Lot description & details: A quaint 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom home with room for expansion.

    It's been a long time since I entered a BnS - I miss them. I like building, but I don't build well without direction.

    While I still can't comprehend how some people manage to build what they build, I've gone back over some of my old stuff and at least I've improved tremendously!

    Scoiattolo! Thanks for the entry form! I MIGHT try this one! It's been a LONG time since I've entering a BNS challenge! And I've discovered that Facebook's photo album is better than Photobucket's. So, I've got the entry from in Word on my desktop and I'll BM this too. Thanks, again!

    Uploading a lot is not a requirement to enter the challenge. The judging is based on your media that you present. Just make sure your photos of the lot are presented either as a story here in Create A Story or on a photo sharing site, such as Photobucket. As for the lot you may have to try several attempts to get it uploaded especially with the problems with the Exchange.
