    ENTRY DETAILS: a row of 3 terrace houses. I was going for a minimal, modern look mainly because decorations cost simoleons!. The houses really only have the very basics, I just couldn't find any place to cut costs to get a tv or dresser in somewhere. The houses sleep 4 (2 singles and a double) so at least if a few sims move in there is plenty simoleons left for luxuries.

    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: yes please

    @Liziann1 They don't get properly included in the cost on the Gallery. @Cerrydd made a good post that explains the behavior on our Build Mode Feedback thread. I had noticed a discrepancy in the past but hadn't explored it further; she has made a really good assessment of the problem.

    What I'm curious about though @BuildnShare, is if it really matters for the purpose of BnS challenges? The reason I ask is because it's kind of like buy debug items; the paintings are going to be handled the same way in terms of cost in the game for everyone that chooses to use them, so it's an even playing field. Perhaps because they must be created as opposed to being found in the catalogue, or just on general principles that a painting that looks like a Vincent van Gogh shouldn't cost only a couple of dollars?

    Editing because after further investigation, I can confirm that sims created paintings are not being counted at all in lot cost on the Gallery. They are essentially zero dollar items. However, photo costs are being inflated on the Gallery. For instance, an $8 photo will add $10 to the cost of the lot.

    Staying within the budget was really hard! Already knew that before going in, since I'm not great with budgets, but I really enjoyed the challenge :smiley: It really makes me a lot more conscious of whatever I'm doing while trying to finish the build! My hats off to all participants, doing such a great job with the little money we're given :D can't wait to see the rest!

    ENTRY DETAILS: Neighbourhood 2 - 30×20 – Duplex, 2-3 bedrooms per side, 1-2 bathrooms, total lot cost no more than 40k. Tough challenge! I managed 2 bedrooms and 1.5 baths each side, with a teeny bit of landscaping. I managed to provide a few luxury items - there are curtains, a TV and dresser in each house. I tried really hard to avoid uncomfortable things as well, although the bathrooms have been skimped on a bit so I could give other areas a plush feel :smiley:

Both have similar ground floor designs with open concept layouts in keeping with overall style of individual home, altogether sleeps a maximum of 5.

    I’m glad I did this challenge as I never expected it was possible to provide so much on such a tight budget. This will change the way I view starter builds. I’ve attempted to build on previous feedback by using the free buy debug lighting.
