    @creativemetaphor - Really nice job! Love all the woods, the gables, the sectional seating, the way you did the bar counter seating (esp. near the kitchen), the landscaping, the layout, the angled fireplace, and all the little nooks!

    @ciane Thank you! I actually had a completely different build at first but just could not get it in under budget. I am really happy with how the final turned out - but even saying that as soon as I was done I started rebuilding it outside of the challenge constraints and ended up with a cabin I am really in love with - like I want this cabin for *me*! lol

    I generally use the guidelines for the challenge as just that. Build what you love, how you love. I'd love to see your cabin.

    @Pinkusfamily Wow! Love the pool table! And I like that the master bedroom is separate from the other two. Great job!

    @iampes23 That is some amazing color you've got there! Love the kitchen, especially! Glad you made it in time! :mrgreen:

    “Your appointment with Mr. Pascua is here,” Rose says over the intercom.

    “Thank you, Rose. Please send him in.”

    You rise to greet the man as he enters, impressed with his build. You aren’t sure what you had in mind but he seems to be almost a bodybuilder!

    “Thank you for agreeing to see me on such short notice,” he says as you motion towards the chair.

    “Not at all, I’m happy to fit you in,” you reply with a smile. “Now, your assistant said something about a resort?”

    “An ocean-side resort and hotel,” he confirms.

    “That’s quite a project,” you say, but love the idea. This town could use something special to draw more tourists.

    “Economy is up, people want to travel. But they need a place to stay when they do.”
    “Makes sense. What scale are you thinking?”

    “Well, it depends. I’d like something with some flexibility, some standard rooms but also some nicer suites. A pool would be a nice touch, but maybe an ocean swim is good enough? Some outdoor activities, of course. Perhaps a lounge or restaurant for the local community to enjoy as well, especially in the off season to keep the place open.”

    He speaks very rapidly but you scribble all that down.

    “I also want it to really stand out! I want people to see it and think, ‘yeah, that’s where I want to go.’ So nothing too small or too blended in, but don’t let it clash, either. It should fit the town but still draw your attention.”

    You nod. “I understand completely. How many guests will you want to accommodate?”
    “I’d like at least 8 rooms. Three with one double bed, three with two double beds, and two luxury suites. If you can fit more in for the budget, then please do, but I don’t want to feel that the resort suffered just for more people. There must be a reason for them to come, after all. “
    “Of course. Now, about the budget…”

    BRIEF
    350k budget.
    Build a hotel and resort with at least 8 rooms. 3 furnished with one double bed, 3 furnished with 2 double beds, 2 luxury suites. All must have attached bathrooms.
    Provide a lobby, reception area and admin office.
    Provide landscaping.
    Style should reflect the town it is built in, but stand out.
    Provide at least one indoor and one outdoor activity or entertainment.
    Must be built near the ocean.

    Sim Challenge:
    Show us the Sims who are visiting the resort, can be anyone, any traits, etc, just show them enjoying their vacation.

    @BuildnShare I have to thank you for waking me up from my long nap and inspiring me to make something. :) I'm definitely in for the resort challenge, in fact, I intend get the first entry in. Almost finished now. Links (ok, I'm out of practice and put the pictures in by accident) to a couple sneaky-peek WIP pictures in the spoiler below (I'm trying to talk myself out of changing anything or starting over :D )

    Very cool build @suzses and pretty colour scheme. Right away the thought 'Flamingo Resort" jumped out at me lol. If I didn't recently finish my large resort I would have been tempted to join in this challenge too. Looking forward to seeing more WIPs :smiley:

    Thanks @soocoolsim ! Right now it's Pink Flamingo Oceanside Resort actually :D Your recent resort is so fabulous and I'm sure was so much work (err, play?) that you're not ready to tackle another one right away.
  • cianeciane Posts: 16,430 Member
    @iampes23 - nicely shaped house. I like the use of those short, wide windows on the the top floor and the way they break up that tall roof line. I'm not big on cc, but I like those plant paintings a lot! I'm glad you included a dog house. It makes the home that much more inviting.

    @suzses - Your WIPs look great. I love the center focus with the curved drive and the use of that tall roof piece.

    @BuildnShare , I would like to build my resort in Aurora skies. Could I build on the 64 x 64 lot off of the Hot Springs, insert the Hot springs instead of the beach ?

    Thanks,
    Diane PInkus

    Sure, as long as there's water in view.

    Well, so much for my resort entry. :/ I just came over here to complete my entry form and happened to reread the requirements and saw I was having a reading comprehension problem before. I saw 2 each of the 3 room types, when it is actually 3 of the singles and doubles, so I am 2 guest rooms short. I built the resort for my own game on a 40x40, so I'll just be using it for me and not entering after all. I did upload it to my studio, and there is a picture album ( https://flic.kr/s/aHsmP14qh3 ) if anyone is interested.

    Looking forward to seeing what you all do. :)
  • seabenseaben Posts: 338 Member
    Aww things happen @suzses you resort is still stunning I'm looking forward to seeing what others do
  • suzsessuzses Posts: 2,113 Member
    @seaben Thanks :) It was fun to build anyway. Since I used all but 1k of the budget, I suspect it would have been less fun if I had enough rooms :D
