    Thank you @xamira99 & @sgemm Really niceley done little Colonial. And yes, I think you are correct. Several times I was blowing through an area and had to delete everything I had done, because I made it warm, with brown. lol Heck, I was afraid to leave any dirt areas in the yard. I don't know how psycho this person is with brown. What did brown ever do to her???? :P

    I'm guessing both of these builds are for the woman who hates any shade of brown. A tall order especially in a traditional build.

    @Taoron I love the round patio, so dramatic! I'm guessing unhappy times in a brown house gave her such a strong reaction to the color.

    @sgemm I'm glad you kept going, it's a stately home perfect for the sisters.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Twin sisters Candy and Sophia have recently decided to move in together after the passing of both of their husbands and the destruction of each of their homes in a horrific flood. Looking for an elevated, safe haven, where they can enjoy a peaceful afternoon gardening or a quiet evening reading, On the Banks of Noren is the perfect place for them to do exactly that. Did I mention that they're witches too? Well this two bedroom, two and a half bath home has that need covered with dueling cauldrons!

    Thank you @Taoron.
  • sgemmsgemm Posts: 37 Member
    @Taoron Thank you! Very difficult- and I often contemplated just how much brown I should consider adding, I ended up with bits here and there in the end.

    @wendyology Thanks, I appreciate that. I'm also glad I did, and I think even just changing the lot it was on gave me more inspiration to finish it.

    You guys have outdone yourselves yet again! Beautiful high up houses all around. Looking forward to peeking in individually.

    ENTRY DETAILS: A new home modern for the Ausman family. Raised on a 8-step high desert
    foundation to protect the home from floods. The area may seem dry, but the river nearby can be quit dangerous. Heavy rainfall may cause the river to overflow and cause homes nearby to turn into aquariums. But the Ausman's home won't have that issue! The home
    has a modern and clean style for the stylish family. A lot of outside space fitted with lots of nice furniture for late nights under the stars. Or pool party's! The home also has several balcony's plus a large roofterras. Located here is the family's telescope
    right outside the study. The large roofterras also has plenty of space to store the garden furniture downstairs in times of floods, also ensuring that the Ausman's will still be able to enjoy time outside! With 2 guestrooms and a guest bathroom there's also
    plenty of space for family and friends to stay over. The large kitchen, perfect to prepare large dinners, seperate living room to entertain and dining room for dinner party's.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Mikael and Briggit's kids have flown the nest! They went ahead and remodeled the entire house to set themselves up for some easy living. Of course, they left a guest bathroom. But wow is it nice to have a crafting room for all the woodworking and painting she does - and a computer for her writing! Mikael is all about showing off his awesome angler skills, though. He has stocked the backyard pond with some rare fish he's caught out and about. Plenty are mounted on the wall, though, and he has a simple computer for looking up the latest fishing reports or checking out the futball scores. This entire build was done using basegame or free items so that everyone can use it.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Yes, please! I want to learn and am always looking to improve my skills.

    It's time to add even more whimsy to our Sims 4 neighborhoods! What is whimsy, you might ask? Merriam-Webster dictionary defines whimsy as a playful or amusing quality, a sense of humor or playfulness. Your builds should have charm and a humorous quality to them. The ways to accomplish this are infinite - use your imagination and have fun!

    This round, we'll be creating residential lots and sim families. The goal is to have a residential home and potential family for every lot in the main Sims 4 neighborhoods (Willow Creek, Oasis Springs, Windenburg, Newcrest, and (possibly) Brindelton Bay).
