    I Quite agree! Great job, clearly, you are more advanced than I am.

    @wildling , great house. I am amazed with what you did on such a tight budget! I had to scrap first attempt because I was well over budget. You did a great job!

    Thank you! I thought I wouldn't make it, but after lots of cuts it worked out. I have the cheapest appliances, skill equipment, floor and wall tiles, beds... mostly everything.

    Your did a great job with your house! I love the basketball court and my favorite detail which I will definitely try next time is the towel hanging on the door. So realistic, I love it!

    I did find that trading down on goods COST ME! That's why I started over. Often the resale price was as much as the new cheaper item.

    @FoundMarbles @Ainsleyf @FaithofKaela Thank you guys so much! I had a little trouble with extra space on the inside so some places may seem a bit bare.

There is fitness equipment in the master bedroom. The children's rooms are on the first floor, one for the girl and one for the boy. There is also a shower room on this floor.

    Thanks for hosting and judging the challenge! I'm still new so I'm hoping I can enter! I've used broken links (by adding extra periods--if I'm allowed and isn't too much trouble to deal with).

    ENTRY DETAILS: I decided a craftsman style home would suit David. Craftsman homes have strong design elements and are no nonsense--perfect for a strong and sensible man who is ready to take control of his life. The open floor plan makes it easy to keep an eye on the kids. Decorated in calming blue with bright pops of orange--playing on the tone of the natural wood furniture--Dave sees a bit of the uplifting shade in each of the areas of the main living space. The house flows easily from inside to outside with the large French doors and the bigger backyard with shade trees is a great play space. David liked the patio so much he decided to put his easel out back for some en plein air painting. He might even use his garden for painting inspiration when the plants are ready for harvest. David's room is masculine without being dark and he really appreciates there is space for his punching bag--working out helps him with stress--and the private bath with shower. The rooms for his daughter and son really capture their personalities. The daughter, Darla, is very girly and loves animals! Ricky's room is all about the sky--he wants to be an astronaut.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Dave's clothes are a little raggedy and he feels he is ready for a haircut--he got used to keeping it short in the military but he hasn't been able to afford one in a while. Even though he's prone to bouts of sadness, Dave is hopeful his children will benefit from his new beginning and be even more successful. And now that he is going to be back on his feet soon, he's optimistic he'll find a new partner who will become good friends with his kids (he's a romantic--it's the trait that won over his ex-wife, Justine, even though she's not naturally one for marriage). Dave and Justine get along well. She's really impressed with his new place and even helps out with the kids sometimes while David gets used to taking care of the family again.
