    Hello, back with a question, again. :p :D I wanted to know if I could use the shower toilet combo like the one from granite falls or the jungle GP for the bathroom? And if not can I use the outdoor showers and a bush? lol

    The combo thing just gave them a little more privacy.

    Thank you, @Xinqun! I like the thought of reclaiming decaying structures and who would appreciate that thought more than a bunch of hippies? ;)

    ENTRY DETAILS:

    In the Age of Aquarius there was LOVE for man, woman & nature! A recent hurricane destroyed the Von Windenburg Estate. Due to their abundance of wealth, the Von Windenburgs decided to move on to a larger and more metropolitan area where such weather is scarce. The Groovy Gang of six eclectic personalities found this to be the Perfect Storm for their needs. After consulting with them it was decided that this private location and coastal atmosphere would be the ideal place for their commune of Peace & Love! Simple construction allowed the commune to take shape quickly. Using the debris left by the hurricane, a rustic boardwalk was added to access the main living areas. Since there wasn't much dough for building materials, the group used brightly colored paint to liven up the tin roofing, porches and railings. There is a quiet fishing dock adjacent to a picnic/recreation area. In addition, the group enjoys the walking/bike path that surrounds their new home. All the windows have some sort of shutters that can quickly be closed in case of another unexpected storm. There is limited electricity so this group relies mostly on lantern light and grilling for their simple life! This Groovy Gang now enjoys living away from the city and the restrictions of metropolitan life!

    Enjoy this commune of PEACE & LOVE where your sims will enjoy their own personal space while sharing in community cooking, dining, gardening, skills & recreation. Artist Treehouse! Writer's, Musician's cabins with a special Collectors Shack!

    ENTRY DETAILS: Thsi group of Sims wanted to disturb nature as little as possible, so when they found a natural clearing in the untamed forest of Newcrest, they chose to build there, cutting down only the trees they needed to and using that wood in their buildings. All four buildings were intended to blend into their surroundings as closely as possible. Their swimming pool is a natural pool, with only enough rocks and flowers cleared away to allow access. Only the flower garden was planned in order to keep the paths from being overgrown.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: yes please
    CREDIT FOR CC/RECOLORS: None. Some rocks and plants were enlarged using shift+right bracket.
    SPACE FOR PICTURES:
    I think I went a little overboard with the trees in an effort to create the forest, so those showing each side are paired with pictures from just inside the tree line.

    Going to quote myself here and say that I noticed those bathroom shower combos were 0$ so I decided not to use them to be fair to those who don't have those packs and to those who use "real" toilets. Still wanting to know about the bush and tarp showers.

    You're right about the §0 combo's, they're a no-no, but yes, you may use bushes. How much do the tarp showers cost?! If they're comparatively priced, then go for it.

    The tarp shower costs more then the cheapest shower. It's the second in the list of showers I think. Thanks for the response!

    @BuildnShare Good evening - just to clarify, I used the Public Throne in addition to showers from outdoor living. Is this acceptable? The cost of the Public Throne is $1168. THANKS for your time! :)

    ENTRY DETAILS: So my idea for this build was to put the group out on the island in Windenburg. I love the idea of using shipping containers as home and felt the six would love the idea of reusing and recycling. I gave them the 3 shared living spaces. I imagined Essence and Lavendar as being a couple so they share a container with a double bed. I put Sparrow and Storm in the same container and then Sky and Raven in another. They each have one side of their shared containers decorated to suit them. I even put a little stove in Sky's side so he can do extra cooking experiments. There is a shared outdoor living area. A shower area to one side and then a small natural pool on the other. It's a perfect little Happy Hippy Hideaway.

    ENTRY DETAILS: The Six by the Sea. Essence and Lavendar are two love birds who have shared their life theories with others and now have a little group of friends that have adopted their outlook on life. Sparrow is a bit of a shy loner and loves to spend time with her collection. Sky reads a lot of cook books and uses what he learns to make his own vegetarian dishes. Raven sees art in everything and loves colors. Storm has begun looking at how to graft seeds and hopes to find a way to create new plants. A colorful bunch who just love nature and life!

    @itguyinsc Sorry for the late reply! We said the §0 combo shower/toilet was not okay, but I don't see any reason that combining a high-cost public restroom with a free shower combo would be an issue. You could definitely get equivalent objects for much less §, so it does not appear to be an unfair advantage to allow it.

    ENTRY DETAILS: What I had in mind when building this was a place for sharing so I decided not to use any doors and only include only one toilet. When building it I was also thinking that there should be lots of color even if they didn't. I tried to create a lot where basically all rooms and areas can be used to hang out with other sims so basically they wouldn't have any moment for themselves, the only room closest to private would be bedrooms.
