    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: http://s1069.photobucket.com/user/Folalas/slideshow/sims4buildnshare20
    ENTRY DETAILS: A large modern building. I tried to leave plenty of space outside for running about & playing. All the classes etc are on the ground floor, bedrooms & a living room/hangout area are on the first floor and on the second floor is an art & reading area.
    I put a teachers room next to each of the bedrooms so there's always an adult near by at night. I originally intended to put the toddlers into the 2 double bedrooms but I figured small children like company & teens want privacy. I ended up putting the teens in the 2bed rooms & put all the children & infants in dorms together.
    As well as the three classrooms, the school offers gardening, cookery, art, music and science classes.

    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: yes, please.

    @Kaile - Are those CC paintings in Ms. Montpellier's office? They're beautiful! Really like your children's dorm rooms and the gymnasium. I like the use of green throughout the build and your classrooms are great. The cafeteria counter is creative and works really well for the build.

    @Zita1966z - Great exterior design. Very clever use of MOO. Love the stacked colored bricks you used. How'd you get them up the walls? I'm still new to MOO.

    The girls dorms are great and I love the idea of the assembly room!

    @folala - Great exterior! I like the courtyard athletic areas also..basketball court is so clever and a great touch! That giant tree you made on the wall is awesome! Also love the open cafeteria area with the 2nd level being able to look out over it.

    @Ash072 press alt while placing will allow free placement, however windows will still snap to grid, but using alt will allow to free place the height. For placing items ctrl + 9 will move them up and ctrl + 0 will move them back down to their original height (with MOO on). Ctrl + } will enlarge items and ctrl + { will shrink objects back down to original size. I hope that helps. :)

    @Liziann1 - we are working on getting the archive list up, so that you won't have to search through the thread, however, this takes time.

    Thanks so much @Ash072 ! I loved all the garden areas & the rooftop pool of yours. My favourite part is the crèche, its absolutely gorgeous & the citywalk is such a cool idea.

    I've tried to avoid looking at any other entries before I had mine finished so I wouldn't start wanting to change everything! I couldn't face a 4th attempt!! but while I'm here..
    @Zita1966z great architecture & really nice idea behind the colours of the build. my fave areas were the dining hall & pool & the sick bay was a great touch.
    @kaile great layout, loved the gym & assembly halls. my fave was the music room- all the paintings there are awesome. are they paint from reference?
    @Nhicks great layout, beautiful landscaping & very homely. the fundraising area is a great idea & the nursery is really gorgeous -its almost making me broody!
    @Liziann1 great entrance, landscaping -especially the space themed play area - that is gorgeous, & bright colour scheme.
    @Issabella14 just Wow! stunning architecture & pretty much stunning everything else too.
    Now to accept the weekends over & go to bed.

    Thank you @lisa17ann, @Nhicks, @kaile and @folala for your wonderful comments on "Little Saints Orphanage". This was a big build for all of use. In saying this, @Ash072 - very creative build. Love how everything links to the inner courtyard. <3 :)
    @kaile, great orphanage. Love the kitchen and mess hall. Your gym is so original, I love it. <3 :)
    @Zita1966z, outstanding build my friend. Architecture and interior design is just very beautiful. Love the colours and the MOO you used on the roof. Your clinic was such a great idea. Mine is more like a sickbay, but great minds think alike. lol <3 :)
    @folala, Great architecture and interior design. Love the use of lights, and colours. Just love the basketball court, very original. <3 :)
