    I'm off to poke the bear. I'm going to tinker with my 119999 entry. If I'm not back in a few hours with a build entry it means I poked the bear and lost badly.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Freya and Phoebe are as alike as any twins could be - they look alike, talk alike, dress alike (right down to their accessories). So, when it comes to their homes they want them to be alike too. The two duplex units in this building are the same, but mirror images of each other. Even the decor is the same. There are 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in each unit, with an office that could be converted easily to a third bedroom. Each unit has a private balcony in the front, with a long shared balcony in the back overlooking the pool. They love to entertain so the back patio and pool area is large enough to host fabulous parties!

    The balcony does not have to be large or contain seating, etc. But it does need to be accessible and functional.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Welcome to 'Two as One'
    These little duplex houses are as identical as their owners. They are each others mirror images but because of the 'hugging C-shapes' of the ground-floor, there are slight differences. To keep things simple, I've arranged the images so that the pictures on the left are of the left house, and the pictures on the right of the right house. The twins are definitely enjoying this place! I hope you have as well :)
    Thank you for taking the tour!

    P.S. My apologies for the lack of story/text, I am just squeezing this one in even though I actually don't really have the time :wink:

    ENTRY DETAILS: Freya and Phoebe are ready to get their new duplex: the "Twin Cubes". Each one gets a full separated house, but they will share the backyard for their "wicked" parties. Freya wears glasses now and that makes it easy to tell who's who most of the time, as they insist in wear clothes and hairstyle as if they were a pair of clones.

    I am enjoying the Creativity !
    This is my last Build n Share for a while..
    My Laptop is done- It kept rejecting a Windows update for about a month- so the computer started acting funny and getting locked up, I was in the middle of working on another Build challenge and - I got today's Sims update/patch, then a Black screen.. I now have to figure out what I am going to do...

    So I will just be watching ... I think all these entries are so great...

    That's too bad @Pinkusfamily I had the exact same thing happen at Christmas. I lost everything that I hadn't uploaded to the gallery. My husband was finally able to get the computer to restart, somehow, back to factory reset settings. Then it updated and has worked great since. I hope you figure it out.
  • PinkusfamilyPinkusfamily Posts: 344 Member
    @AlJay , Still a Black screen... I don't know what to do ...When I bought it ( I did not know ) - got it- realized it was refurbished- It had all sorts of updates and a Graphic card I did not know of ( Not the norm. )- So even if I get a normal screen - I am not sure I can factory re-set it... There is No warranty on it now- :( that was Very short...

    Husband thinks we can get a New one before the end of the month..

    So I am looking for something reasonably priced, But I want a Bigger screen , I m looking for a 17 inch laptop now...

    Thanks, for your concern... :)

    Trying to stay positive,

    ENTRY DETAILS: I tried to do something a little different for a Duplex and ended up with this Modern Scandanavian Build. Each Unit is almost identical with only a few slight differences. There is plenty of room out back for their "Wicked Parties" and beautiful views from all 3 balconies (if placed on the same lot I built it on)

    ENTRY DETAILS: One of my favorite builds I did in Sims 3 was for BnS Week 14 (that was in September 2009!!!!). It was also a duplex, and I called it Double the Fun! I was excited to re-imagine this Sim 3 build with our Sims 4 building tools. And I could luckily accomplish a lot of it with the release of the new terrain tools. While the units are mirror images of each other down to most accents and furnishings, each sister has chosen colors and other details suited to their individual personalities. For examples, Freya prefers red while Phoebe's favorite color is blue. And Freya's creative outlet is painting while Phoebe loves streaming her gaming sessions and creating videos for SimTube.

    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: of course :)

    Ack! Here I was, all proud of my build, and then I saw everyone else's. :D I'll still try to get mine photographed and posted after work tonight.

    Sneak peek at mine (Coincidentally, the first cat to wander by matches the color scheme of the duplex. XD ) :
