    @BuildnShare I just noticed that I left something vital out of the build. Am I allowed to edit my entry after it has been posted?

    @BuildnShare Not that it affects me directly since I already have my entry posted, but the subject line for BnS 35 says "due 1/30". I wondered at the time why you were giving us the whole month for this challenge, but there may be some out there who thought they had more time.

  • BuildnShareBuildnShare Posts: 3,296 Member
    @StSciurus - apologies, this was a typographical admin error on the title, the main post did state that the closing date was the 20th. Each TS4 challenge lasts for two weeks, unless made abundantly clear that you have longer.

    #36 - To Sleep Perchance To Dream

    Your last client has left the office and you cast your eye over your google calendar to check what’s coming next. “Ah yes,” you think to yourself, “I remember Rose mentioning this one”.

    Rose buzzes through on the intercom “Are you ready?” she asks.

    “As I’ll ever be!” you reply.

    She knocks on the door and as it opens, you and she are almost bowled over by the whirlwind of activity that is your next prospective client.

    “Hi, hi! How are you doing?” He asks.

    You motion to him to sit, but he show no signs of taking your lead, he seems happy pacing up and down the office.

    You take a moment to study him, bronzed skin, closely cropped dark brown hair, brown eyes and a trace of stubble across his chin. He has a rangy body and a grace about his movement that reminds you of the performance of Swan Lake back in Sunset Valley two years ago.

    He starts to talk again, his voice a lilting Caribbean accent. “Thanks again for agreeing to meet with me today. I am so excited to finally have somewhere to call home, even if it is going to minuscule!”

    You wonder how small he means when he proffers a portfolio to you. Inside are sketches of a modern-looking studio home, the exterior is stucco, the interior post-modern and you have to wonder why on earth he needs an architect when he has these drawings.

    “I bet you’re wondering why I need you!” He says echoing your thoughts.

    “A little” you admit.

    “Well, you see these sketches were completed by my partner, but we had a difference of opinion and decided to go our separate ways. He always said that he wanted to build me a small pad somewhere, where I could go to relax and unwind after a hard day at the studio. Just because he doesn’t want to build it anymore, doesn’t mean I shouldn’t have it, does it?”

    “No, of course not,” You say with a smile.

    “You mentioned a studio, do you paint?”

    “No, I’m a ballet dancer, I’m working with Doug C on a new performance of A Midsummer’s Night Dream. And I want my space darn it! He can’t speak highly enough of you and your little team here, so I thought you would be perfect for me.”

    “Mr Marriner.”

    “Please, call me Rich.”

    He says, still striding around your office.

    “OK, Rich, I guess you are looking for a one bedroom build, similar in layout to an apartment.”

    “Similar yes, but I most definitely want the exterior to look like a home. I intend to spend a lot of time in the area, if this thing with Doug works out, who knows what may happen next.”

    “So, you want a comfy one room home, with all your favourite things within easy reach?” You ask.

    “Well, apart from the bathroom, who wants to poop where they eat hey?” He asks with a smile and a twinkle in his eye.

    “Of course. Did you have a budget in mind?”

    “Nothing too huge, after all, this thing with Doug is at its proposal state right now, it might not ever see the light of day, but I don’t like to dwell on the negative. Let’s say $35,000.”

    “It must have somewhere for me to meditate as well, a calm outdoor area maybe?”

    “I’m sure we can think of something!”

    Shaking hands, he bids you adieu.

    You silently send a thought of thanks to whomever it was that was responsible for your previous partnership with Mr Curtis, he certainly sends you his fair share of clients. Though, recently you have started to wonder if he might be holding a slightly ulterior motive.

    Brief:
    • Must be built on a 15x20 lot, in whichever world you chose
    • One room, single storey post-modern exterior home (the only area that can be separated is the bathroom)
    • Interior to be no larger than 100 squares total, as a square this would be 10x10, no side can be longer than 10 squares
    • Interior is also to be in the post-modern style
    • Must haves, areas for sleeping, cooking, eating, reading, yoga and meditation.
    • You have a budget of $35,000. The cost of the lot should be included in this total.


    Notes: We will need an overhead of your build with gridlines turned on. Your build will not be judged if this requirement is not met.

    Sim Challenge: Create Rich Marriner, he is athletic and outgoing, his last trait and his aspiration are up to you.

    Room Challenge: No room challenge this time around, as it is only really a one room build.

    Due Date: 3rd of Feb 2016

    @BuildnShare Like the new challenge! Is $35 000 the Gallery prise? And does it have to be the square 10x10 or just any shape but with 100 tiles? :smiley:
    Any shape, just no more than 100 tiles, and no one wall longer than 10 tiles. You have to include the lot price when building and add it on prior to playtesting, so as not to give yourself an unfair advantage with depreciation :)
    This new challenge looks like fun. I am confused though....what was with the ballet studio?! Is that the build the other guy is building for him...and he needs this modern house from us?
    Worry not about the ballet studio, just a bit of background about our lovely Mr Mariner.

    Oh wow, i just found out that $35000 is a small budget for a modern house.. :cry:
    I'm huge over the budget, even without a small garden/patio.. So I'll enter with an unofficial entry
    Bless you!! Loving the unofficial entry though <3

    1 last question @Buildnshare. Does it have to be a square or can it just be a total of 100 squares?
