    A reminder to all entries, including those who posted entries already. Please state cost of build and include a floor plan view of the house in your slideshow. If you are doing the challenges, please include the cost of balcony and/or sim traits.

    Otherwise, fellow simmers, all of the builds are beautiful! I am so happy to be taking part in this challenge because of y'all! And the Douglas' out there are simply scrumptious.

    I would join the BnS team if I could but I don't have much time to spare. At this time, being a contestant is all I can do.

    Thanks @celdys0n! Yes, we do need the final cost of your build with your entry form, and overheads are a must, as it gives us a real idea how the home build will play in game.

    Okay for some reason I can't go on the Sims 4 because of the computer, so if I have to guess I think it says 167k but when I got into build mode it says 149k.

    CHALLENGE #: 2
    FORUM ID: BryonyRae
    ORIGIN ID: BryonyRae

    SIM: Douglas Curtis III (or by my hashtag #bryscreations) - edit: forgot to include his traits, which are romantic, self-assured, and loves the outdoors

    LOT: Acrophobic Penthouse (or by my hashtag #bryscreations)

    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: Click here

    ENTRY DETAILS:

    Boy, this was a tough challenge for me. I had trouble getting inspired and was really struggling with the ground floor penthouse concept, but then an idea occurred to me: it all made sense if Douglas Curtis III, world renown adventurer had one teeny, tiny little weakness no one knew about, acrophobia, or a fear of heights! It reminded me of Indiana Jones and snakes, made me chuckle, and that was all it took to get going. I've designed a luxurious, modern penthouse situated on a 40x30 lot, squeaking in just under budget at $149,274 (Gallery price), $131,950 when placed on the lot I used (Municipal Muses with a lot value of $4000). It is definitely built for entertainment, with a huge balcony, as well as open and expansive living and dining areas and a great kitchen/bar combo. There are plenty of attractive display spaces available for Mr. Curtis' collectibles. The master suite is a refined and spacious hideaway, complete with master bath and walk-in closet. There is also a guest bedroom and private office. I had particular fun designing a funky Yin & Yang full bathroom.

    CREDIT FOR CC/RECOLORS: No CC. I do use Shimrod's Improved Lighting mod.

    Edit: Okay, just to cover the bases regarding cost, in case it is not clarified in time (see pgs 21-22), I revised my original build to delete the gaming unit on the balcony, which reduced the cost by $4400, enough to cover most of the lots upon which one might place it. I moved the easel over slightly so there wouldn't be such a large gap in the space, but other than that, nothing was changed. The revised lot is simply called Acrophobic Penthouse V2. If the original version does wind up being considered over budget, please use V2 for judging. Sorry for any confusion!

    o.O Holy Plumbbob! I told myself I wasn't going to enter Challenge #2, but decided to go for it anyway. But... after looking at all the other entries so far, I give up! lol *hits bulldoze button* GAH!

    Y'all are so dang talented, no way can my puny efforts compete. I'll just sit back and admire what you guys make from now on and not kid myself anymore. Great job everyone, my chin's all scraped up from dragging on the ground in awe! :)

    I figured I'd throw my hat into the ring. I've never built in the sims before, having just got TS4 about a week ago. I have lot to learn, but I'm having a blast trying to figure out the best way to use the build tools. So be gentle please. :)

    LOT: Doug curtis Home
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: imgur.com/a/VtU4Z
    ENTRY DETAILS: When I think of a penthouse, considering most tall building are square or rectangular in shape, I kept this for the basic outline of the floorplan to work in. (Note, this sounds better to me than saying I couldn't figure out how to create curved walls :) ).

    The main focus of this floorplan is the huge living area at the center, which feeds equally well into the outside balcony/bar area, along with access to the kitchen and dining areas.

    Lot size is 30x20, with a value of $133,695
