    ENTRY DETAILS: I used the Dallas floor plan. I felt it had more space than the smaller one bedroom and I wanted to make the garage her art studio. I decorated in a colorful mid-century style and placed some art work I felt went with the style. I stuck to the floor plan as well as I could to get the same look. I did make one pantry a half bath as I felt it would be nice to have one close to her art studio. The 3 smaller bedrooms are sparsely furnished as I felt being a single sim, who was a loner, she would not have much use for them at the moment, and I wanted to spend most of her funds on the main parts of the house she would be living in. I did have the more expensive appliances but had to replace with cheaper ones but the color looks better in the home, so it worked out. I tried to keep in mind her loner trait so she only has a small dining table, but there are bar stools at the counter and a table outside if she ever feels like entertaining. I hope Miss Potts is happy here.

    Awesome looking Hope, @pallypoo!! Very cool room as well. Love the blue and orange. Haven't checked out your slide show yet, but the gallery shot is awesome. Nice curb appeal!!!

    I build mine..the outside anyway..and I hate it. LOL. SO may try one of the smaller houses. I picked the first one and it seems really big for one person. Also, I'm not loving my roof. I'm very tempted to just put a giant rainbow dog poop on it to cover the bare spots. Would I get marked down for that??

    @FaithofKaela @Laebeth don't take the first one - too big for the budget ;)
    Isn't it harder to decide which style??? ... the mommy and daddy wooden style /the fluffy years / Space Age // (European or American style)/ Popart or other artmovements... That was a really hard decision for me :cold_sweat::D
  • AinsleyfAinsleyf Posts: 880 Member
    Oh wow...I have been having problems with images at home so I haven't been seeing all these awesome entries. Will have to check out everyone's slideshows as soon as I reload java or delete cookies, or whatever it is I have to do to get my images straightened out at home.
  • kilra0kilra0 Posts: 612 Member
    @Ainsleyf do you still have problems to see the images?

    @FaithofKaela ... sorry ... the warning came too late :# ... good luck on this one I sure it will turn out great! (I love this theme :) )
  • PallystylePallystyle Posts: 2,415 Member
    @Ainsleyf Thank you! I know what you mean about the roofs. I was trying to do one of the others but the roof was looking bad! lol I may play around with it and see if I can make it work for practice. I might even finish that lot for fun with no budget! :D

    Looking forward to seeing your build.

    I really like what I have seen here so far, great work everyone!

    @FaithofKaela I think we have the same taste then, because I was between those same options, and while looking at them earlier today, I too was worried about the sheer size of the first one.. so I was already leaning towards the Mitchel Glen :p We can be building twinsies for this one!

    Yeah...still having problems with images, but I did some research online and it seems I may just need to delete all my cookies and reload java. Here at work all the images are fine, but, difficult to look at too many without getting lost perusing and forgetting to get work done! As of this morning I also could still not get into the gallery in game so, fingers crossed.

    Loving the entries so far. Currently working on the Mitchell Glen, couldn't let that one slip by! But have less than 7k left with 3 rooms and a garage to go.

    ...Unusable areas are bit of a quandary when putting together a challenge of this type. You don't have to worry about including the unusable cupboards and pantries in your builds, as they are essentially 'wasted space'. We will update the brief with these details.

    Oh, Yay! This is great news! I'm up to $80,000 on my build already and still need to do the bathroom, art room, lighting & deco in the kitchen and landscaping. Getting rid of all the stuff I put in the pantry, laundry and coat closet will help a lot. Thanks for the clarification! :)

    BTW, I chose the Dunland and so far the hardest part has been fiddling with the vaulted ceiling. My trim kept disappearing on the outside, but I've figured out a solution. Having a ton of fun and I love everyone's entries so far. :)

    ENTRY DETAILS: I chose The Dallas (Plan #1247) because it offered separated area's for writing and creativity and the open single level floor layout, where if entertaining guests they can easily mingle about without walls being in the way of the kitchen and living area's and is adjacent to the back deck for more seating and BBQ. Two guest bedrooms should any guest be invited to spend more time or they can be used for an expanding family. The garage has been converted to a room for painting, practicing music or working at the wood carving station with ample wall space for displaying any masterpieces or wood work and a Study separate for the needed seclusion for any writer or work at home sim.

    Gah! This is so frustrating. After seeing all these gorgeous entries from those who have the bowling GP with all the lovely Mid Century stuff, I'm realizing I can't compete against y'all with that. o.O Plus all the other packs I'm lacking. lol Especially those who've built the Dunland like I am. (@abelhinha35 for one, WOW!)

    Bleh, darned 'ol toaster laptop. I'm still entering just for fun though I don't have a prayer. lol Just makes it more challenging for me and I love a challenge! ;)

    I feel that way too, I can't compete with people here xD! Very intimidating indeed.

    I'll be trying to enter, time is a problem right now though.

    Good luck everyone!

    And welcome to Build n Share @FidgetyAtom, if you're wondering how something is done, the best way to figure it out is to download the lot in question and take a look yourself!! But I'm sure @kilra0 will reply as to how they created that gorgeous little area.

    You turn on "bb.showhiddenobjects" & then search "unknown" in the item search bar below in objects by function.
