    @Talea12345 Your house looks so hidden from the sky view! Neat idea! I love the rocks around the pool area. Such a nice home!
    @TwtyBrd0707 Beautiful home! Love the porch a lot.
    @SimTresa I always say that I'm going to use the sky lights roof trick, and I always forget. Amazing kitchen island!
    @AlJay Your house is freakin amazing! You should just move it to Bargain Bend for this challenge, forget the dome. I know it is a shame because the dome is wow!.. but your house is so awesome!
    @PINKLADY1 I had to go and comment on the gallery after looking at your pictures. You are such a great builder and decorator! Love it!


    Skylights are fun if challenging. :) I actually had to redo them to make a bedroom larger. Thanks!

    Thanks @shakerella :)
    But what if the air quality isn't good!?! What if they can't survive!?! What if there are strange things living there!?! They need the dome!! I'm kidding, but seriously, that was the starting point for my thought process. I am totally being okay with being disqualified :)

    @AlJay I have put a rocket ship out before from Debug and it goes back to being crates. Did your sim build yours or am I missing something?

    edit: I have even tried to place one that I built before and have stored in a "room" and it just goes back.

    @shakerella it is not the rocket ship. It is a live edit object item that kinda looked like a rocket ship. I did have my sim build one, but it was far too expensive. I figured this would work just fine.

    @AlJay now that I look better I see it isn't. Looks great there

    Firstly, I'm a day late! Been very busy the last few weeks, hope it's alright :)

    I'd also just like to say woah, the entries are all wonderful. I wish I had time to download each one and have a good peek, maybe when work settles down, but the pictures are just gorgeous. Love seeing how different the builds are!
    Stay safe everyone x

    Build-n-Share Challenge #136 - **A Tiny Hangout **Due April 30th, 2020**

    A Tiny Hangout

    You are just tidying up your office when you hear the door close behind you. You turn to find a teen-aged boy slouching into the room. His hair is black, and his eyes are bright blue. He is about medium build, although it is hard to be sure since his clothes are so baggy.

    "Hello," you say warmly. "How can I help you today?"

    He looks at you blankly. You notice the wires coming out of his ears. He removes his ear buds, and you repeat yourself.

    "Yeah, hey," he acknowledges you. "I am just starting college in the fall."

    He pauses, so you congratulate him. Then you wonder why he is here, smacking the gum in his mouth and staring at you.

    "Yeah. yeah," he finally continues after a very long moment. "My parents have given me a small plot of their estate to live on."

    Again he pauses, but this time you merely wait on him.

    "Right, so...I need a place to live," he says. "You know, on this land. But I don't know how to build, do I? So I've come to you to build it."

    "Well, you have come to the right place, Mr?"

    "Oh, right. Yeah. I am Guy Orange," he says, giving you a slight smile that looks suspiciously like a smirk.

    "Well, Mr. Orange, let's start with some basics. How big is the lot we have to work with?" you ask politely.

    "Yeah. It measures 20 by 15," his eyes never leave you. His staring is beginning to make you jittery.

    Suddenly he blurts out, "Half of the lot needs to be a hangout space, maybe around a fire pit. For me and my mates."

    "Okay," you say, hiding your shock with some quick note taking. "You will need a bathroom, a place to sleep, a place to eat... What else would you like?"

    "Yeah, so... a place to study. And a place to play video games."

    "That is very do-able. What is the budget?" you ask briskly.

    Still staring and chomping on his gum, he answers, "They gave me $30,000. Yeah. I need this quick. They want me out of the house, like yesterday."

    "I can have it for you by the end of the month," you assure him.

    "Yeah. Get to it then," he says, putting his ear buds back into his ears and still staring at you. You nod as he gets up and slinks out of your office. As soon as the door closes, you pull out a small mirror and check your teeth for any food caught in them, wondering what he had been staring at.

    The brief:

    *due April 30, 2020

    *the budget is $30,000, which does not include the cost of the lot.

    *use a 20x15 lot.

    *the house itself should be no bigger than half of the lot, placed at one end of the lot. You can build up and down in the same footprint.

    *outside needs a fire pit and landscaping.

    *have spaces for a kitchen, a bedroom, a bathroom, a study, and a place to play video games.

    The Sims Challenge:

    *create Guy Orange and his family.

    *show all their clothing choice and give skills, likes, etc.

    *show them looking around Guy's new home.

    The Room Challenge:
    *create the small kitchen.
    *the budget is $8,000

    I will keep an eye out on the post for several days, in case anyone has questions. But this will give everyone that needs it something to work on. :D We are doing the same one for the Sims 3 challenge, if anyone here is interested in doing it twice! I hope all our Build-n-Share folks are still well!!!

    DETAILS: Guys Tiny home! It fits on the 32-tile category. I really wanted to build a tiny home for a long time, but I still really struggle with the Sims4 not allowing half floors. They are so important in small spaces! As a result, most of this is build for looks and not for total playability...

    Sigh, I agree, we need ladders and half levels in this game.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Rodrigo and Maria are ready for their son, Guy, to start flying on his own. They've set aside part of their estate for him to move into. Their decision was accelerated by the fact that Guy likes to party and his parents (who are admittedly a bit snobby) don't like having the "riff-raff" around.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Three-member family, two parents and a teenage child who will be starting college soon. Parents are well-off and not afraid to spend their money on their son. Guy, however, is a pretty low-key person, preferring to simply hang out with his friends between study sessions. He isn't flashy or snobby like his parents, so it's probably a good thing he's getting his own space soon!
