    I can not figure out how to use photobucket to save my life. So I use Imgur also.

    If your using photo bucket you need to use the direct link and at the top of the post your writing you'll see what looks like a page with the corner turned down. Paste the direct link for your image in there and when posting a gallery link paste it into squiggly thing :D like the page icon at the top and it should stop disappearing on you. Hope that helps :s I'm not sure I explained it well lol

    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: Build Images
    ENTRY DETAILS: For me, postmodernism goes beyond modernism by introducing ornament, historical elements and whimsy into the exterior and interior design. I chose a basically white modern palette but introduced red and black accents with unexpected architectural shapes and/or interior objects. The house uses 94 squares of the grid.

    SIM: Rich Marriner
    SIM ENTRY SLIDESHOW: All About Rich
    ENTRY DETAILS: I basically followed the brief given in the challenge. Rich Marriner's aspiration is to be a Renaissance Sim. His attributes are Outgoing, Active and Foodie. Sim creation is one of my weakest areas, but I thought I would enter in order to get the practice!

    I have a question @BuildnShare concerning the rules of using only one story. Can I have more stories/rooms above one story as long as they are not used/accessible for living areas? The way I designed the roofing on my build required using rooms under roofing pieces on two additional stories in order to make it successfully work. I hope that's not breaking the rules. o.O *crosses fingers*

    Sorry for the delay, we have been deliberating and agree to you using an extra floor for a roof as long as it's not furnished, habitable, usable or accessible in any way. :smile:

    No worries! Thank you so much for answering my question, happy to know I don't need to start over. \o/ I'm mostly finished with the exterior, working on the interior now and I really like this build. It's been a true challenge for me since I love balance and Postmodern pretty much demands the opposite. hehe :)

    I've never built a Postmodern home before so I did some research on Google to find out exactly what to do for this challenge. While checking out different designs and styles, I ran across this image and was inspired by the interesting roof:

    6xomPgM.jpg

    I started out trying to figure out the best way to copy the style. My results aren't exact, but as close as I could get with the resources available in build mode. Once I had that done, I went a little wild (for me anyway lol) and ran with it from there. I'm a big fan of balance so this was a true challenge for me, the Postmodern style entails using different styles, textures, colors and a sense of playful whimsy. I had a lot of fun with this and might try building another Postmodern lot again. Thanks for looking and I hope y'all like it. :)
