    ENTRY DETAILS: While the Gold family loves the spotlight, they love each other more. Garnet is the CEO of an architecture firm, which is why their house is magnificent. Diamond loves her children, but she has a special spot in her heart for their dog Emerald, who was Jade's 16th birthday present. Even though Diamond loves pink, she accepts her daughter's love for green. Jett wishes he didn't have to wear all the fancy clothes - he wants to play in the mud and collect frogs.

    You stroll through the park, sipping a cooling cup of lemonade. Although the wind has a bite to it, the breeze does not blow enough to cool the hot sun beating down on everything. The dogs pant in whatever shade they can find. Even the kids are not playing as energetically as usual. You finally sit down at the picnic table by the monkey bars and greet your new client.
    "Hello, Mr. Quakenshaker?" you ask with a huge smile.
    The man opposite you laughs out loud. "Yes, I sure am. But, please, call me Jim."
    "Okay, Jim," you say congenially. "How can I help you?"
    "Well, I dare say you have heard of my employer, Fairbanks and Folders Publishing?" You nod as he draws breath to continue. He nods at you as he starts his story. "Perhaps you might also have heard that every five years we do a large community project of some sort, mainly to help the underprivileged. Our projects ultimately help everyone in the community. In the past, we have opened mobile libraries, created free educational software, and even built learning playgrounds. This year, we have decided to be even more ambitious. We have decided to mimic a missionary approach to reach those who need the most help, often in the most remote areas of the world."
    "That certainly does sound like an ambitious plan. Is it a religious project?" you ask, extremely interested to hear more.
    Jim laughs heartily. "No. Our project is still based in education, not religion. We are going to send about 25 teachers into these remote areas to teach those who may never have even seen a book before." He pauses, hands clasped on the picnic table as he watches the youngsters at play.
    "What we would like from you is a sort of portable classroom environment with very few walls, so that set up can be as fast as possible. It can be long or square--whatever shape you think is best." Again Jim pauses while you take notes about the project.
    "We, of course, would like a model unit before we order all 25 units. It is a bit difficult, you see, what we are asking for. First, it must be portable enough to build and tear down easily and quickly for travel, but not wheels. We will be moving them by trucks, boats, and the like."
    Jim consults his notes. "Second, it has to, in a way, function as a sort of village centre. It should have two bathrooms for the villagers to use. Since some of these areas don't have sanitary bathing facilities, we need a shower in each bathroom. A small laundry area, a small kitchen area, and an area for four computers are needed. It will also need a library/book area for study and research. A large majority of the space should be a flexible space dedicated to learning. And this space may be a little tricky. You see, we will be teaching multiple life skills as well as math, writing and all the normal skills. We will also be teaching all ages. So, we will need tables for cooking classes that can be somehow put up if we are doing story time for the children, for example, where the children would be sitting on the floor."
    "That all seems easy enough to do," you say, looking back at your notes. "It looks like you probably need plenty of storage for supplies and tools as well as educational materials."
    "Yes, we do require a lot of storage. Maybe shelves or cabinets. I will leave that for you to decide. So, these are the kind of spaces we need on the first floor. Oh, before I forget, these units will be going from very cold to very hot areas, so they will need air conditioning as well as a source of heat. Learning is always easier when people are comfortable."
    You scribble down even more notes.
    "And now, for the third part, we also need another area for our teacher to live, semi-separate from the school room. Maybe a loft or separate suite of rooms. The teacher will need a large closet, someplace to sleep, and a complete bathroom. And a desk to use their own personal computer, which they will provide themselves. Oh, and their own personal refrigerator. For cooking, the one kitchen area should be enough."
    "Would you like any particular style or colors for these units?" you asking, again scanning through your notes.
    "I would say a modern style," Jim replies. "And the colors...a dull, neutral color on the outside--gray, brown, that sort of thing. Clean lines and understated colors on the inside. We want people to focus on learning, not the walls."
    "Oh, I agree with you," you respond cheerfully. "What kind of budget did you have in mind?"
    "We are prepared to spend up to $150,000 per unit. Will that do?" Jim asks, peering down at his hands.
    "That is a very generous budget," you say. "I can have the model done by the end of the month. Will that work for you?"
    Jim's eyes came up to meet yours. "That is even faster than we anticipated! And that timeline will be appreciated greatly. We are all eager to get started as early as possible. Jim gets up and shakes your hand. "I am very pleased that you were recommended to me. I feel we are in good hands with you!"
    You blush as you shake his hand.

    The brief:
    *The model's budget is $150,000.
    *There should be a huge, flexible space for a class room with a small kitchen, space for tables, plenty of storage, a small area for books and research, and an area with 4 computers.
    * 2 complete/full bathrooms for the villagers/students to use.
    *A separate space for the teacher with a large closet, sleeping area, desk, refrigerator, and a complete/full bathroom.
    *There can be more than one level if you want the teacher's area to be upstairs. Use as few walls as possible.
    *Landscape the outside as it might be found in any region(in other words, pick a region where you want the unit to be placed and landscape accordingly).
    *A small laundry room and AC and heating for the unit.

    The Sim Challenge:
    *Create a teacher and some students and show them using the unit. Please include their clothing options and likes, traits, etc.

    The Room Challenge:
    *The budget is $20,000.
    *Create a bathroom for either sex or unisex.
    *It must have a toilet, sink and shower.



    The deadline for this challenge is Friday, July 31st no later than 23:59;59 EDT/New York Time

    I was having a lot of computer issues the last night of the contest, in the chaos I accidentally posted and was granted a 24 hour extension on the contest page for BnS sims 3 (facepalm)! So I understand if I’m disqualified and that’s why I thought I had a 24 hour extension.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I took my inspiration from the remote education building I was in when I worked in remote alaska teaching native youth. The coloring fits the Salvadoradian area. This is mainly powered
    by solar (not pictured as i havent gotten that pack). Large flex space, with the teacher area up in the loft. The stairs are retractable to close off that area when not in use.

    Just dropping in again with another 'tip' page (I was encouraged to do this and have permission, honest!!)

    Roofs are worth the effort! The roof can make or break a design...

    SIMS 4 LOT NAME: Jungle Bungalow
    NEW LOT LINK: Selvadorada International School
    LOT COST: 57,477 (what the internets told me anyway)
    GALLERY COST: 82,166
    TOTAL COST: 139,643

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    In the remote jungles of Selvadorada there are few opportunities for children to receive a solid education. With that in mind, a large community project was undertaken to build a series of community center schools. The school also serves as a center where adults are also welcome to shower and eat a meal in the small kitchen.

    The school itself is an open plan floor design to allow maximum access to the space. Desks and tables can easily be folded up and pushed to the side. Although it may not be the biggest school or community space it is jam packed with opportunities for learning, including a computer lab, research library, learning through play areas, and several different activity desks.

    There is also a small room on the second floor for a teacher to live. The room contains a kitchenette as well as a small desk and computer. The suite also has a full bathroom to ensure maximum comfort and relaxation after a day of teaching students and welcoming community members.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Sure!
