    SIMS 4 LOT NAME: Cottage Am See
    NEW LOT LINK: 'Bloody cool Steampunk'
    LOT COST: $ 1,500
    GALLERY COST: $ 37,515
    TOTAL COST: $ 39,015
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: Bloody cool Steampunks {BnS #134 }
    ENTRY DETAILS: The countryside of Windenburg was scoured for the perfect location as specified by Lord & Lady Ravenwood. An area called "Cottage Am See " fit our budget ( Empty lot cost $ 1,500 ) . Although the lot size is 20 x 20 all of what was specified by the Ravenwood's was accomplished..Using the considerable amount of valuables, and left overs that were discarded from the broken time machine. It was time to think out of the box and get creative. Keeping in mind a request by Lady Ravenwood the finished home reflects the aesthetics of the 1880's.This Steampunk Home in the country is surrounded by nothing but nature.The location is quiet and surrounded by a lake. {Am See means "at the lake" in German } So there will be a place for Lord Ravenwood to fish and a plot for a fruit & Vegetable garden. There is room enough to work on inventions and repairing the time-machine . This Home was created using many debug items. I had to think out of the box and get creative, in ways this builder has not done, ever..

    TOTAL COST: $39,987.00
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: The Ravenwood's
    ENTRY DETAILS: I have chosen to build a small Victorian style home for the Ravenwood's. It has a fireplace on each level of the home for heat, as this is an off grid home. There is one indoor bathroom as well as a small outhouse. The house contains a study where Lady Ravenwood can read and practice her Violin, but I have given here a beautiful flower garden where she can enjoy painting the scenery outdoors. Lord Ravenwood has a workshop where he can continue to fix his time machine as well as work on other new inventions. The large yard will be a wonderful place for their children to play as they grow older, should they choose to stay in this time period.

    TOTAL COST: 39949
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: BnS134 Ravenwood
    ENTRY DETAILS: This is a small Victorian inspired cottage. Lady Ravenwood would have been accustomed to a grand Victorian home with a room for each activity and all the rooms filled with every manner of knick knacks, heavy curtains and bright wall papers. By contrast, this cottage is tiny, though the game assures me it exceeds 100 tiles. It is probably more sparsely furnished & decorated than these clients would prefer. I have used impossible wall paper colours: bright green and lilac to help Lady Elizabeth feel at home despite the sparse furnishing and decoration. I have added art by Jlewi38 of exotic travel destinations and vintage paintings as these SIMs are probably very well travelled and interested in discovering whatever they can find to learn about. This lot has landscaped gardens to help it feel more full and interesting. It can work off-grid even in freezing temperatures. The lot has its own well and all the lighting is by candles and lanterns. Debug lighting has been added to photograph but the lot is playable without the extra lighting. The home has a basement with a space to wash up after crafting and gardening and a full bath. The main floor houses the main living area, the master and a kitchen and back porch built of stone so that if there is a kitchen fire hopefully the house can be saved. Upstairs is one bedroom set as a hobby room. The well has surface access to water the garden. There is a water tower for water pressure in the house.

    please note there have been changes in some of the art used, the previous art kept being marked as custom content so this link shows the changes
    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Mr. Ravenwood wanted a simple home while Mrs. Ravenwood missed the aesthetics of their time and wanted a home in the country. So I created the Ravenwood Hideaway! There is a fishing pond not far for Mr. Ravenwood to travel to. The location is in the woods where there are no neighbors only trees. Mr. Ravenwood requested a work shop so one was built w/the addition of a lovely green house since he does like to garden as well. Mrs. Ravenwood has her own little hobby room for creating paints or music and they can both enjoy time together in the lovely parlor room or entertain guests. The dining room is simple and as well as the kitchen. The bathroom has everything they need. The baby has it's own room that it can grow into. The Ravenwoods have their own little bedroom as well.
    Also please note that the workshop & greenhouse are actually part of the 2nd level so anything changed there changes the 2nd level of the house.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Lord and Lady Ravenwood are trapped in a time that is not their own, however, they were able to design a home that is filled with all the trappings of their time. While it does not possess the same grandeur of their estate, Lord and Lady Ravenwood nonetheless worked together with architects and artisans to create a home that is uniquely their own. The kitchen is small, but bright and well-appointed (as most Victorian kitchens were), and while the dining room is not large enough to host the opulent parties of their time, it is nonetheless lavish. The living room boasts floor to ceiling windows that overlook the countryside, and a crackling fire in a wood stove keeps the room warm on long winter days. Lord Ravenwood requested for his workshop to be tucked away, and so it is hidden behind a secret bookcase. Here, Lord Ravenwood has spent his time inventing a suite of robots to perform the duties that the servants in the estate of their time once carried out. Up the stairs- which are guarded by a triad of skeletal warriors from a dig in Selvadorada- is where the family's personal rooms are. Massive, steampunk-style windows dominate the Lord and Lady's bedroom (offering plenty of light and providing sweeping views of the countryside), and the newborn twins' nursery offers a calming view of the lake. Lady Ravenwood's private room is also tucked away at the top of the stairs, providing her a place to read, paint, and play the violin to her heart's content.

    The garden outside is small, for now, but Lord and Lady Ravenwood plan to collect more plant specimens as time goes on and expand their garden accordingly. Eventually, after a few more digs in Selvadorada, and the sale of a few more collectibles, the Lord and Lady plan to build a greenhouse so they can have fresh produce all year long.

    @Pinkusfamily I love how yours feels almost like a warehouse- very industrial! It's not at all what I envisioned for where a Lord and Lady would live, but these are not a "normal" Lord and Lady. It's so creative!

    @Lehua Your garden is GORGEOUS! I also love your greenhouse!

    @JojoMOMSTER I love how cute and tiny the house is! It's so cozy!!!

    @alijay I LOVE the idea of a fireplace in the bathroom. I never would have thought of that. Also, your time machine is so creative! What a great idea!

    Calling all designers! It's time to show off your awesome skills in our Spring Designer Showdown!!!


    In the showdown, you have a foundation and 3 items on counters. ( Please disregard the counters. They may be sold back for money.) Place the lot on the Bargain Bend lot in Willow Creek, in any direction that will fit. Choose ONE of the three items to include in your build WITH THE COLORS GIVEN. Sell back the other items. You may not add anything to increase the size of the foundation given, except if adding stairs makes you add a space. You can build only on the foundation given. You can put walls of any kind and fences any where you wish on the foundation. Your design should reflect the item you chose and its given colors. You can change the size of the items, but not the colors.

    Rules:
    *NO changes to the foundation size or shape, except if adding stairs automatically adds a space.
    *Pick only one object for your inspiration. You can change its size but not its colors. Include your selected item in the build.
    *No basements.
    *You can build in the yard as long as it is not attached to the house. Any required rooms cannot be off of the foundation.
    *You can use any fences, walls, windows, and doors that you wish. You can designate any space on the foundation as a porch or room (so indoor or outdoor space).
    *The lot must be fully landscaped.


    The Brief:
    • *the budget is $103,440, which includes the lot as is.
    • 4 separate bedrooms/sleeping spaces
    • at least 2 and a 1/2 bathrooms.
    • a kitchen and place to eat.
    • a study, living room, and media area--in any combination or all separate.
    • laundry, either on or off the foundation.
    • any other rooms or areas you wish to include.
    • the build can be as many floors as you want up but no basements.
    • Please include a picture of the ground floor from overhead with the grid on so that we can verify no changes were made to the foundation.
    • A spring theme is recommended but not demanded.

    INSTALL LOT FROM THE IN-GAME GALLERY: Search for Hashtag #BnS135. The lot is by Iampes23 and is titled "Spring Designer Showdown"

    Due to the nature of the build, there is no Sims or Room challenge this month.
