I thought it was time for me to start up a showcase, mostly so I can track my own progress when it comes to learning to build, but also to share with those who can give me constructive criticism or input.
Feel free to leave comments :).

PS: If anyone for any reason would like to use my lots or Sims for a CAW/world building project, feel free to do so. I just ask that you don't use my builds for reuploading to your own studio, regardless if you change something in them or not. Just shoot me a private message to let me know, I would love to see how my stuff fits into your world :).

    Important info:

    I have decided to clean up my Studio.

    I don't feel that it properly represents me and the building skill improvements I have made over the past year. So it seemed a good solution to ensure, that it better reflects who I am as a builder and what my strong points are. The reasons for it are many, the only thing I can say is that it was long overdue.

    You will see that some older builds have gone missing both from this thread and from the Studio itself. I have deleted them, after safely storing them on my computer (mostly to remind myself of where I started and where I want to go). I also deleted the corresponding screenshots and posts.

    And finally, I figure out what happened to all the screenshots gone missing. At the last big update to the website, they changed the URL of the pictures. I've now fixed it so all the pictures are showing again and hopefully they'll not mess with the Studio URL's one more time, cause blaaaargh, that took some time to figure out ;).

    I hope you will enjoy the new and "improved" Showcase. Feel free to leave me comments or suggestions to what you'd like to see more of.

    Dolph aka Cassie.

    Your newest home Breeze looks really great! I like the nicely bright shades of blue and green that you used for the exterior and interior. Great choice of ceiling lights, they rwally add to the feel of the house. The balcnies wuld be lovely to sit out on.
    Great home to live in!

    Retro Book Café - http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=6957299

    It has a large, spacious reading/eating room, filled with bookshelves and cafétables + chairs like our parents used to have. There are many posters on the walls and a little juicebar in the corner by the door. It also has standard Boys Room and Girls Room bathrooms, a large parking lot and two benches outside.
    It's set to "Library", I think that enables you to invite people to a party there? If not, please shoot me or set it as what ever is needed!
    It's CC free (Custard tested and approved), furniture has been recolored to bright red, because it gives that great "Grease" feel to the place.

    I playtested it and it took less than 10 minutes before it was full of sims looking for a read, a meet and a chat :D. CC free!

    NEW "El" Urban Sprawl - http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=6694886

    Newly remodeled home, family friendly and ready to move into.
    Winning features about this house:
    It's a spacious 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom house, fully equipped with upgraded appliances and plumbing and loads of room. We've decided to not have too much decor and no rugs in this house, to make it even more child friendly (nothing to get stained or broken!).
    The back yard holds everything a child could desire, tree house, a swing and there's also a football goal for the entire family to enjoy.
    The pool area is complete with loungers, a barbeque and a bar. Diving board and a floatie to relax on is a given.

    And a picture of the lovely home:

    Childhood Charms - http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=6706758

    This home was made for Seascape, as a big THANK YOU for her sweet kindness.

    It is a true copy of the house that my parents and I lived in when I was a teen. Well almost, I did take the liberty to make my baby brother's room pink, just because it looked a bit cuter.

    The mailbox was picking on me, but it has been playtested and both mailboxes at the house works - go figure :D. All appliances are fully upgraded, it has a tool shed attached (where you could put a crafting station of some sort) and it is move in ready. The price is a bit less than 65K fully furnished, so I think it would be good for a somewhat well established family who like this particular style of danish surburban living :).

    Front of the house.

    Half Bathroom downstairs (I have purposefully not taken any pictures of the upstairs huge bathroom, because I wanted you to be surprised by it :D).

    Green'n'Good - http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=6700065

    Story:
    Yasmeen and Michael fell in love from the moment they met and started dating.
    After a few months, Michael proposed at the Spring Festival, very romantic and very crowded too ;). Yasmeen said yes, of course, as Michael is the love of her life and they both dream of having a big family (Surrounded by Family LTW).
    In the middle of summer, they married and decided to look for a new home, since they both wanted to have a child right away. And they were lucky, finding this gem of a house, which fits both of them in every way.
    Yasmeen, being a fairy, loves green colors, it makes her feel like she's outdoors all the time.
    Michael, being a loving husband just happens to have his favorite color be green also.
    So when they saw Green'n'Good for sale, they looked at each other, nodded and bought it! And this is where their first baby is gonna be born - Yasmeen is pregnant!

    Address: 31 Lupine Lane
    Size: 20x20
    Style: Whimsical Home/Cottage

    Miss Arabelle Chance - http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=6971600

    Arabelle is a young heiress, who had a very sheltered and pampered upbringing at the Chance Estate. Her parents, Lord and Lady Chance were tragically taken away by the magic of an evil witch. Arabelle fled, only carrying a suitcase with some clothes and the money she found in her father's safebox. Will this artistic and gentle young woman find happiness and safety where she lands?

    Her blonde hair and fair skin, her delicate face with freckles across her nose and her gorgeous smile always makes her stand out in any crowd.
    Her traits also make her somewhat of a catch and having lived such a sheltered life, she's unlikely to have any idea that she might melt many a male heart. Her impeccable manners and caring soul makes her a good match, especially for a Sim who's looking for a real Lady. Will YOUR Sim take a chance of finding love with this beauty? Will you help HER find love? How her story ends is totally up to you :).

    Traits: Virtuoso, Family-Oriented, Proper, Artistic, Friendly.

    Favorites: Classical Music, French Toast and the color Turquoise.

    LTW: Arabelle dreams of becoming a Master of the Arts.

    A contest Sim: Miss Honey Combe!

    Download link: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=7327588

    Description:
    Honey's parents had humor, her name clearly shows! Growing up on her parents' farm, Honey quickly learned to love and care for animals, work hard and be self-sufficient.
    From the day she was able to walk, she would help feed the chickens, stack the hay, muck out the stables and play with the countless kittens and puppies living on the farm. On the slower days, when all her chores were done, she'd sit down with a book, reading about all the amazing places in the world and all the animals living there. Or she'd watch TV with her parents, "The little house on the praerie" being her favorite TV show.
    She had a good, loving, solid upbringing and that was lucky for her, because her parents vanished mysteriously one night, leaving only traces of some strange circles in their crop fields.

    Devastated about her loss, Honey decided to move to a new town and start afresh, but she didn't quite feel like leaving the farmgirl life behind.
    Her love for animals and gardening lead her to Appaloosa Plains, where she settled down in a little house, determined to make something of herself so she could one day own the ranch she's always dreamed of.

    Will this warm, friendly, charming countrygirl find happiness and serenity and maybe even a man who'll call her Honey as more than just a name?

    Traits:
    Animal lover, Family-Oriented, Friendly, Green Thumb, Handy.
    Favorites:
    Autumn Salad, Custom Music, Turquoise.
    Sign:
    Gemini.
    LTW: Animal Rescuer.

    And a picture or two of Honey.
    First, her clothing:

    honeycollected.jpg

    Then, Honey and Charles, her favorite chicken, having a chat:

    screenshot_original.jpg

    Then Honey relaxing with a book:

    So, that's Honey. I hope you'll like her! :).
    ACK! PS: Honey is (of course!) CC FREE!

    A contest house: The "Farmer Fun" - Honey Combe's house.

    Download Link: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=7327591

    Description: So Honey arrived in Appaloosa Plains, prepared for endless hours of house hunting. But she was lucky! After only a few hours, she stumbled over this gorgeous gem of a house, complete with chicken coop! It looked like a miniature version of the ranch she dreams of one day owning, so she put in an offer and it was instantly approved. At a mere 14076 Simleons, this house was a steal!


    Now Honey is comfy in her new and cute starter home, perfect for a single farm girl.
    In the basement there's a bedroom with dresser and laundry basket, a dryer, a huge double bed and a girly, yet relaxed light rose color.

    screenshot_original.jpg

    In the full bathroom next to the bedroom is a large tub, raised on a platform, a toilet, a sink and a lovely mirror. The colors are earthy and green, combining some of Honey's preferred tones. And right outside the bathroom is the washer.

    screenshot_original.jpg

    The ground floor has an open kitchen/dining/living area, complete with TV and bookshelf and a few nice paintings decorating the walls. The colors suits Honey very well, a crystal clear light turquoise, white and light wood to compliment it all (please ignore my builder, she snuck in without me noticing!)

    screenshot_original.jpg

    Outside the house, right in front, is the one thing that made Honey CERTAIN that this house was meant for her: A chicken coop! Her rooster Charles, who moved with her, made himself comfortable and nudged his pile of chickens inside the coop to lay eggs.
    Next to the coop is room for Honey's bike, another great plus.

    screenshot_original.jpg

    Every piece of appliance has been upgraded to unbreakable, very kind of the real estate agent to throw in as a "Welcome to Appaloosa Plains" bonus!

    So here Honey is, ready to take on a new life in her new, shiny house!

    PS: Farmer Fun is CC FREE! - Custard checked and approved.

    This is a build I made for the Wishing Well, for the lovely and talented miss GreenCats.

    I present to you - The Buttercup: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=7329997

    Price, fully furnished, equipped and upgraded: 125983 Simleons.

    buttercupfront.jpg

    There's a minor issue though, one I should have solved in a few hours tops.
    I cannot upload anything to the exchange right now. No lots, no Sims, no pictures. Blarghle!
    I'll keep prodding it every 15 minutes until it succeeds. Until then, I'll entertain you with these screenshots. And explain a bit about the design/items I have put in as I go :)

    So here is the outdoors. I was even able to afford two cars, one for Mommy and one for Daddy Sims.

    outdoors.jpg

    The playground. On the front porch two stroller await two babies/toddlers.
    I didn't put a sandbox in, didn't wanna clutter up the grounds too much. Which is also why I haven't done a lot of landscaping, apart from a few flowerbeds and some terrainpaint.

    playgroundm.jpg

    And a look behind the house.

    housefromrear.jpg

    Here comes the more interesting part: The surprise element I added for GreenCats. Enjoy a Spa & Sauna area!
    The massage table is a bonus for GreenCats too, I figured that with all those kids, both Mommy and Daddy Sims could use some tension relief at times.
    Don't mind the builder Sim, she's just testing that everything works as intended *cough*.

    spasaunaoutdoors1.jpg

    And for the 3 YA daughters, especially the sporty one, a Basketball court. With easy access to the Spa & Sauna area, where the youngsters can rinse off in the outdoor showers.

    basketballspasauna.jpg

    Then we move inside, to the Entry and the TV & Entertaining Room. I believe there IS enough room to plant a rug if they wanna throw gift giving parties. There should be, unless I fudged something up badly!

    tv1w.jpg

    And here is the Family Library. I DID go and buy every single skill book I could get my hands on. Not sure if they'll be there when I upload the house though, last time I tried filling the bookshelf for a build for someone, the books went missing in a most mysterious way. I do hope and pray they will be there. I fit in a chess table with some lovely chairs too. Yarh!
    As you can see, I went sparse on the decor. First of all, because I did want GreenCats to be able to add the paintings and such that SHE likes, but also because the room (to me) feels very serene and relaxed just the way it is. Too much clutter would stress me, but she can always add more if she wants to.

    library1.jpg

    Dual-shot, both Library and Kitchen/Dining room is showing here. Again, sparse on the decor in the kitchen also, but it makes sense when you "feel" the house - I think.

    libraryandkitchendining.jpg

    And one of the Kitchen & Dining on it's own. I simply looove that hutch. And the milk jug!

    kitchendiningbath1.jpg

    And we move upstairs, to the Toddler Room. I've kept it mostly in the toddler's favorite colors, because none one yet know the gender of an unborn baby. There's some toys and a really nice bathroom with potty and tub. Of course there's a baby monitor in this room AND in most of the other rooms (the YA rooms excluded!).

    toddlerandbath2.jpg

    And seen from a different angle.

    toddlerandbath1.jpg

    In the opposite end are the YA rooms. First are YA girl1 and YA girl 2's rooms. There's room on the desks for either a tablet, a laptop or a computer, but I wasn't sure which GreenCats'd want for each of the YA daughters, so I left that one up to her.

    yarooms2.jpg

    And the other angle.

    yarooms1.jpg

    Lastly, we have YA daughter 3's room and the YA bathroom. The room is quite girly and pretty cute, yet VERY sporty, I think. I hope I hit the right shades of pink...

    yaroomplusbath2.jpg

    And the other angle.

    yaroomplusbath1.jpg

    Floorplan ground floor:

    screenshot_original.jpg

    Floorplan top floor:

    screenshot_original.jpg


    I've changed the doorbell sound for the standard to posh, because it sounded cuter!
    Also, there's a few surprises hidden around the house, deliberately hidden from the camera :P.
    I just hope GreenCats find that it matches her wish for elegant and feminine and that her family will enjoy living in it.

    Thank you for the sweet words, hun. You have really made my day today!

    I'd actually call myself an OK builder, I am no where near the D.N.A. Team's level - but I am working on it. I should join Zoo's classes too, she's amazing and maybe I can brush up on... well... my everything skills :D.
    Thanks for reminding me of those classes, I'll head over and sign up when I'm done fiddling with some stuff in a build *hugs*.
