    ENTRY DETAILS: When his wife told him she'd dreamed of living in the treetops since she was a little girl, John asked her to sketch up a design for how her dream home would look. She scribbled out some sketches- lovingly depicting the arch of the windows, the lattices of the windowpanes, a turret on the roof. John then put his wood-working skills to work and turned his wife's dreams into a reality. The result was a whimsical treehouse, nestled in the forest, perched high in a gnarled oak, overlooking a vast expanse of ocean. With its mismatched w
    indows, pretty flowerbeds, and mid-nowhere location, this became the perfect little home in which to live out their very own happily-ever-after.

    This is how I do it:

    Click on the image you want to share and you will see this:

    Click on the Copy button near the BBCode (for Forums) section

    In the Comment section of The Sims 4 Forum you will select the image icon and paste the URL for you image in the little box.

    If you are like me and haven't figured this all out yet, you may have to edit out the extra img tags that appear when I paste my links in.

    It should look like this to display correctly:

    Preview your post to make sure your images and text display the way you like. Then, when satisfied, hit Post Comment.

    Hope this helps!

    @wendyology That is such a cool idea. I can't wait to see the finished product! All the world's a sitcom....or something like that.

    @Mikkiness Very pretty old house.

    @AlJay I love that build! Very Swiss Family Robinsonesque. Too cool.

    Looking forward to seeing your finished build @SimTresa. I happen to be very familiar with that blueprint. =)
    oZNx45u.png

    @Talea12345 So very pretty. Great build!

    @suepea Wow! So much color and detail. The height differentials really show it all off wonderfully. Very cool build.

    @Devilariah That looks like it's going to be very cool, when you finish. Looking forward to it.

    CHALLENGE #130 - Whimsyville (Residential/Sims)
    FORUM ID: Alisim19
    ORIGIN ID: Aliana101
    LEVEL: Established
    SIMS 4 LOT NAME: Avarice Acres, Newcrest 40x30 (gallery upload was from Granite Falls where I was play testing but slideshow is Newcrest)

    LOT COST: 3000
    GALLERY COST: 127,338
    TOTAL COST: 130,338
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: Slideshow
    ENTRY DETAILS:
    The build was inspired by a piece of work from Italian illustrator and architect Fredrico Babina's ARCHITALE series, “a tribute to the fairytale universe where the architectures are reinvented to accommodate the protagonists of the story.” See this link for more info. I did try to do a similar modern version but it was soundly dismissed by Assistant Designer (and she was right, my modern building skills are dire :D). So we've done a whimsical twist on a traditional tale....

    After Snow White got married & moved out and their story got made into a blockbuster movie, the seven dwarves gave up mining and decided they needed a bit of distance from one another.....but not too much! So they relocated their old house upwards and each of them built a tiny home around it. Now they can have their own space but still be close to their brothers

    Had a good catch up on latest builds

    @Talea12345 Your Whimsy Windenburg is beautiful! And I agree with @Mikkiness, it looks great exactly where it is, I think that the fact that it fits right in but has little twists makes it more whimsy not less. Great job with the outside (I'm def stealing that washing line idea!) and I especially adore the sunken bedroom :)

    @Taoron Oh nicely done sir, nicely done! Love how the interiors upgrade along with each build too....will the roommate mechanic allow a different sim for each house I wonder? That would be even more awesome B) Great job on the piggy brothers too!

    @suepea A real life whimsy build, I love it! Really is an awesome hodgepodge of of everything I love, never mind my sims *I* want to live there <3

    @Devilariah Your boxes def look cool from that shot, I really hope you finish!

    @SE08 What a gorgeous tree house! I'd have never have thought of using it in winter but it looks especially stunning in the snow. Lovely work both inside and out, I need to find a place for it my world :)

    Why, Thank you! I expect that some piggie relatives will visit from time to time. Maybe they'll even make ammends with the Big Bad Wolf and allow him to spend the evening, on occasion. :P

    I love yours, as well. I commented on the 'newest creations' thread about it. You really did an amazing job and hitting a fairy tale theme...a build after mine own heart.

    Thank you @Taoron your comments are very appreciated 😊 I’m trying to finish the dwarf sims to go with it, cas really isn’t my thing and for some reason all that tweaking of faces makes my hands ache in a way building doesn’t, but hopefully I can get something up tonight....

I'd have liked to have taken more 'action' shots but I'm out of time; I have managed to get one of every dwarf in his own cottage but in retrospect I should have made them sooner and then used them when I did my play testing......always learning haha.

    Ugh, Imgur is being super frustrating. I made a post for all my images as I usually do, and when I clicked share it uploaded all the images as separate posts rather than one, and none of the captions I put in were on them. Any recommendations for other websites I can use/ what I might be able to do to fix my imgur issues? Thanks so much in advance!

    Hi there! Not going to submit official entry forms because of lack of time and issues with the slideshows, but I still wanted to post my build and family.

    Build:https://www.ea.com/games/the-sims/the-sims-4/pc/gallery/2B9FFBE505AD11EA8ED84BBF48D73738
    Cydonia Villa is a beautiful greek home built on the edge of the island in Windenburg among ancient ruins. The Elidaes family has lived there for decades, utilizing the bottom two rooms for guests in a bed-and-breakfast manner for travelers. The plant covered walls, lighthouse, and a relaxing pool makes this home feel more like a whimsical ancient island getaway than a house.

    This one is built for a multi-generational family. The matriarch is a diva-tasctic grandma. Her adult son, who lost his wife a few years ago is subdued. His daughter and her adopted sister are growing from childhood to their teen years. Finally, a toddler son is a little confused by everything. Come and enjoy a groovy episode with outrageous conflict but always ending in hugs by the end of the story.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Some early founding member of the Von-Windenburg family apparently took the phrase "a man's home is his castle" a little too literally. The residence is literally a castle from the outside, though it lacks an actual portcullis and has no moat. The inside is modern and updated, featuring plenty of art and old family heirlooms along with the shiny and new. Each bedroom is decorated according to the owner's tastes.
