    @Ainsleyf :s imgur has been behaving badly this week. They failed to save my uploads and then kept removing pics from my album. I hope I have that all fixed now. I'll need to go back and check. They made me a bit crazy on that last album!

    CHALLENGE #83: A Townie Home
    FORUM ID: JosieAnglin
    ORIGIN ID: Netxpre2
    LEVEL: Established.
    LOT: Home For The Muse.
    LOT COST: $2,000.
    LOT NAME: Fern Park.
    BUILD COST: $92,634.
    TOTAL COST: $94,634
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: Here.
    ENTRY DETAILS: I used the third plan from the article. I also was researching modern mid-century interior design aesthetic, decor, and color pallets. Everything seemed to be different shades of brown and white with wood and stone accents so I tried to stay to the theme, but I made the bedroom a little more colorful since I didn't want the entire house to be only brown and white. The landscaping is simple around the home, but since Hope is a loner I created a path for her to walk in nature when she wants fresh air and inspiration. Since she is maxed in the handiness skill, I figured she liked tinkering so I placed a wood crafting table for her to use as well as using the space in the hallway as a small art studio since she is creative as well.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Yes.

    Great challenge! Just got one question, do i have to build the house exactly like the floorplan or can i be a bit creative on the inside if the house and shape is like the floorplan?

    @WiggleyTuff - please stick to the floorplan this time around.

    Alright so the floor plan aside, can we change the exterior? Like we don't have to try and replicate the image? It's just the floor plan that has to stay the same?

    Hope would like the exterior of the home to look as it does in the images, but you can play around with the landscaping.

    @BuildnShare aww this idea is cute LOL but after 2 hours of frustration I may sit this one out, I can't figure out any way possible to pull off Caprica's roof XD and it looks HIDEOUS with just the normal half-gable roofs *sniff* (at least to me, if anyone else pulls it off I'm cheering you on over here!) Good luck everyone!

    Oh no @PersRealmsShadow - you can always just change a bit here and there, as long as it's recognisable from the inspiration picture.......

    BUILD COST: $97,977
    TOTAL COST: $99,977
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: here

    ENTRY DETAILS: "The Caprica" (first house) I didn't manage the roof either but I loved the floor plan. It's huge and I got in trouble with the budget. Therefore I couldn't furnish every room. I tried to make it as cozy and cool as possible for an artist. I used buydebug objects and selfmade paintings I hope that's ok and you all like.

    Ooo, this round looks tempting, I love Mid Century builds. I really enjoy trying to recreate real floor plans as well. Might have to try to give this one a go. The question is, which floor plan do I choose.. Hmm... Loving the entries already submitted, great job everyone! Have fun and good luck y'all! :)
