    @BuildnShare do the areas for fairies to occupy need to have beds, bathrooms and other necessities? Does this need to be uploaded as a park or residential?

    In my head I just pictured natural areas a fairy would live in and the rest of the park design for human type sims? Lol

    @buildnshare thank you so much for the feedback, I really appreciate it. I'm really sorry that I forgot to mention that I'd like constructive criticism.

    @emere Your win is so well deserved. Your house is AMAZING.

    #44 - This One’s for the Bronies

    “This is a mighty pretty park” a woman’s voice says from nearby.

    You look over at the speaker, unaccustomed to hearing such a thick southern accent. A blonde young woman wearing a Stetson walks along beside a rather tall and strongly built young man.

    The sandy haired man simply responds, “Eeyup.”

    “AJ! Mac!” calls a youthful voice.

    The two adults turn around, showing you the strong family resemblance in their freckled faces. A little girl with bright red hair runs up to them.

    AJ hunkers down to her level, “What's got you so excited Blossom?”

    She pushes her short sleeves up a bit more, revealing the tattoo of 3 red apples on her bicep.

    “Did you see them cute little houses?” She asks, pointing at one of them. “What are they for?”

    “Don’t know. Likely just decoration.” AJ says.

    Unable to resist, you speak up. “They’re fairy houses.”

    All three focus on you. You walk over to smile down at the little girl with a bright pink bow in her hair. “There are four fairies who live here. They keep the park blooming and healthy.”

    “How do you know?” Asks Blossom interestedly.

    “Because I designed the park for them.”

    “Wow!”

    “That sure is something. Ain't it Mac?” says AJ as she stands back up.

    “Eeyup” is the laid back reply.

    “Would you like a tour of the park?” you offer with a smile.

    AJ and Mac take you up on the offer, while blossom runs off to examine the houses again. During the tour you learn that Mac, AJ, and Blossom are all new arrivals to the town. They decided to move after a wildfire devastated their family orchard. AJ is clearly the more talkative of the two, being forthright and practical. Her elder brother, Mac, seems content to listen, contributing with an “Eeyup” or a “Nope” from time to time. Blossom is the youngest and a cheerful little spitfire, running back and forth and exploring the beauty of the park. The matriarch of the Smith family, Granny, will be joining them when they get settled, according to AJ.

    “What are you looking for?” you ask, sensing an opportunity. “Maybe I can help.”

    Mac wanders off to play with Blossom as AJ sits down on a bench. You sit next to her as she starts to speak. “Well, we want a large piece of land, since we’re wantin’ to restart the farm. A house obviously.”

    “How many bedrooms?”

    “At least four, with one on the ground floor for Granny. She’s getting’ on in years and stairs ain't always easy for her to manage.”

    “Bathrooms?”

    “Well, 4’d be nice, but me an’ Blossom can share. Wouldn’t be the first time. “ She smiles. “So at least 3 I think. Don’t want the house too big you know. Don’t need it takin up too much of the land, ya know?”

    “Are you gonna grow anything other than the apples?”

    “Yep. At the old place we had a vegetable garden. Sure did grow some tasty carrots. And we had chickens.”

    “What about budget? Did you have an idea of that?”

    “Bout 50,000. Insurance wouldn’t cover more than that.” She scowls. “Never mind the generations that was there.”

    “Don’t forget the barn.” Mac says, as he trots by with Blossom on his back.

    “Right. Used to take a family picture in front of the barn every year. Be nice to continue that this year.”

    “Understandable.” You say, checking over the notes you made on your phone. “Sounds like you guys have some pretty solid ideas of what you want.”

    “Well, not knowin’ what you want never got you anything.” She observes, flipping her pony tail over her shoulder. “you wouldn’t happen to know someone who can help us get it do you?”

    “As Mac would say, eeyup.” AJ laughs at your imitation. You hand her a business card. “Give me a little time. I’ll call you as soon as I’m done.”

    Brief:

    50,000
    4 bedrooms, minimum 3 bathrooms.
    Apple trees
    Vegetable garden
    Chickens
    Barn

    Sim Challenge:

    Make the Smiths:

    Mac: Family oriented, loves the outdoors, creative
    AJ: Family oriented, loves the outdoors, self assured
    Blossom: Family oriented, loves the outdoors, outgoing

    How is everyone getting on with the new challenge? I'll admit, the budget was tight, but it was great fun!! It's raining here, again, looks like we might have had our summer already ;) I'm planning a new park build for my weekend activities. Anyone working on anything interesting?

    @FaithofKaela I have some ideas for the farm but not sure how to incorporate chickens in it. The budget sounds really tough but I think it would be fun.
