    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: https://tatselk.tumblr.com/post/629064580276142080/bns-cosy-living-area

    ENTRY DETAILS: As this room is supposed to be part of a house in a tiny house community in Willow Creek, I imagine that it would be in or near the starter home area of Foundry Cove. To ensure that it would blend well with the general architecture of the neighbourhood, I based the layout of this room on the front part of Crick Cabana in Foundry Cove.

    To create a cosy atmosphere in the room, I decorated it in various shades of white, brown, beige and blue.

    As I imagine that this is a refurbished version of an existing house, I chose a simple and traditional style for the “bones” of the room.

    The furniture are generally mismatched to reflect how the tiny house community is just getting started. As the community organisers are probably on a tight budget, they may need to furnish the houses through yard sales, thrift stores, flea markets and/or donations.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I designed the tiny home to be similar to some of the larger ones that are moved by large truck and placed into tiny home communities - hence it is long and narrow.However as it is a larger tiny home, it is fixed in place and landscaped. I designed a second similar one on the next lot to give a sense of the tiny home community. The house takes up 83 squares. A ladder leads up to the child's room and there is a computer and study space for the child and the mother to complete homework and odd jobs etc. The colour scheme is in warm tones of purples, oranges and reds as the sim I designed is originally from Sulani and it reminds her of home. The exterior is a sunny yellow with white trim. I tried to use minimal packs - and mostly feature Tiny living.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    This tiny house (tier 2, 64 tiles) features two bedrooms (one bedroom for an adult and a boy's room with bunk beds), as well as a small lounge, small kitchen and bathroom with a shower. The bedrooms and living room open onto a small courtyard with a BBQ and outdoor seating area surrounded by pretty string lights. Things to do: TV and gaming console, bookcase for reading, BBQ, soccer ball. Notes: because this home is a model/show home made available to the mother and her son, the interior decor has a "staged" minimalist look instead of a "lived-in" look with a lot of personal clutter. The top bunk bed is decorative, not functional, but the bottom bunk bed is functional and has been play tested.

    I have a question -- If I wanted to do a front porch area with a flat ceiling above, do those ceiling tiles count into the 84 or not? (I don't have Tiny Living so I can't use the in-game counter for reference).

  • lsnishilsnishi Posts: 2,714 Member
    @HEW310, if you enclose the flat roofing with a fence or a half wall so it reads like a room, it will be counted as a room and the game counts it as tiles for tiny living houses. You can still use the fences or half walls you enclose the roof, you just have to use the trick of partially drawing them in then using the sliders to pull them all the way across so it doesn't read as a room.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Initially I had big plans for this house and quickly realized everything I originally wanted to use would be too expensive, so I had to cut back a little bit and didn't get as many decorations as I usually do, but I'm still happy with it. I thought of new tiny home and thought of fresh light colored wood and wanted to use it all over the house. Hope you enjoy!

    ENTRY DETAILS: The main floor is open-concept living, with a kitchen tucked in behind a small "hallway" that contains a ladder to the upper floor. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a small, but functional, bathroom. The mother's room is furnished with a murphy bed, so she can have a quiet private space during the day too. The child's room is decorated with a "Bosley the Bot" theme, with plenty of toys, storage space, and a small desk for homework.
    Because of a mid-build change of plans, the game actually considers the house a 32-tile Micro home - it's actually 84 tiles. I had already started decorating the main floor when I changed directions, and enclosing it properly would have undone that work, so I left it.

    ENTRY DETAILS:

    This cosy starter home for a small family (a mother and a son) offers a combined living room/dining room/kitchen, a bathroom and 2 bedrooms. All at an affordable price of §32,244 (house only)/ §33,744 (total cost).

    This house is supposed to be part of a tiny house community in Willow Creek. To simulate this environment, I built this house on the Crick Cabana lot in the starter home area of Foundry Cove in Willow Creek.

    I used 80 tiles for this house (45 for the bathroom and 2 bedrooms; 35 for the combined living room/dining room/kitchen).

    To create a cosy atmosphere in the house, I decorated it in various shades of white, brown, beige and blue.

    The furniture are generally mismatched to reflect how the tiny house community is just getting started. As the community organisers are probably on a tight budget, they may need to furnish the houses through yard sales, thrift stores, flea markets and/or donations.
