    CHALLENGE #: 23
    FORUM ID: PersRealmsShadow
    ORIGIN ID: PersRealmsShadow
    LEVEL: I have.. no idea
    LOT: PRS BnS Chal. 23 (I know.. Creative that's me!)
    TOTAL COST: 28,096
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: Slideshow Here (I would like to point out.. I dunno how to make one?)
    ENTRY DETAILS: A modern designed home, with country touches inside. The outside bring the shine of glass to the roughness of stone. A large outdoor patio contains a water feature, along with Chess, a small dining area and a BBQ. Out in the "woods" out back you'll also find a place to garden.

    SIM: Franklins
    ENTRY DETAILS: Taylor is a hippie who loves the modern things, and Julie is a punk who just wants to get back to basics. Taylor is reaching to be a modern painter, while Julie wants to be good at it all. This couple is definitely a case of opposites attract. They're making a good life for themselves though, and that new tiny home fits just fine. (As soon as Taylor buys himself an easel!) (editors note. Deliberately didn't put an Easel in, I figured he'd have to work to earn it, like every frustrated artist XD)

    CHALLENGE #: 23 think Tiny
    FORUM ID: Mommataurus2
    ORIGIN ID: Mommataurus2
    LEVEL: Expert
    LOT: Eco Friendly A-Frame
    LOT COST: 1,500
    BUILD COST: 28,468
    TOTAL COST: 29,968
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: imgur.com/gallery/0el1H/new
    ENTRY DETAILS: Eco Friendly A-Frame is decorated in a Mid-Century Modern style because I like how that particular style works with a bohemian style and when I hear cottage, I think Bohemian. So I feel this style works well for the two. My Franklin's being the young lovebirds, that they are, have dedicated themselves to the preservation and protection of the environment so their home caters to those passions. There is no television or stereo. So they read for entertainment or play horseshoes. I have provided on the lot both a trash bin and a "recycle" bin. And there are already some wonderful harvestables available on the lot as well as in the refrigerator. My Taylor Franklin also has a passion for photography so there are many personal photos in the build as well. Enjoy.

    if it's 2 levels is the 50 tiles counting where roofs might go or stairs? :/

    The 50 tiles would include the ground floor where the stairs are placed, but the necessary open space required for the stairs on the 2nd floor would not be part of the 50 tiles.

    I assume it's 1 entry per person right? I only ask because I made 2, since I wasn't 100% pleased with the shape of the first, lol.

    I don't think we've ever had a double entry before! We'll be happy to give feedback on both builds, but you can only "place" once in your category :)

    We have started a Mini Micro theme in honor of your Think Tiny Build-n-Share challenge. Here is the link Support Think Tiny @ Build-n-Share

    Edit: In no way are we trying to copy your original idea....we just wanted to be supportive.

    See here Theme: Support Build-n-Share:Think Tiny

    Awesome! Thanks so much for the support. Looking forward to even more participation from your Micro Mini builders :D

    Hi. Creeping in because it's a tiny theme.

    Q1: I'm assuming because the couple inherited the land (already paid for) it's not included in the budget? So gallery price not to exceed 30k?

    Q2: Hand-made chimneys - assuming they don't count as floorspace as they aren't useable?

    Q1-correct. For this challenge, the inherited lot does not count against the $30,000 budget.

    Q2 - a hand made chimney outside the main walls for decorative purposes would not count as part of the 50 tiles. Inside, it would be using part of your 50 tiles.

    OFFICIAL ENTRY FORM
    CHALLENGE #: #BnS23
    FORUM ID: Lisa17Ann
    ORIGIN ID: Lisa17Ann
    LEVEL: Established
    LOT: Compact Cutie
    LOT COST: 2,000
    BUILD COST: 27,997
    TOTAL COST: 29,997
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: http://s70.photobucket.com/user/puppyhugger17/slideshow/Compact Cutie?sort=9

    ENTRY DETAILS: Compact Cutie is a traditional styled cottage on the outside but, on the inside it has a more modern feel. It's fully Open plan except for the bathroom) to give a feeling of more space in such a tiny space. Kitchenette is compact but, with lot's of storage. Shelves have been added to bedroom space for displaying nicknack's and, for keeping everyday items at easy access. To the outside of the property is plenty of land for further expansion in the future if wanted or needed. A patio is also to the back of the property with seating area, BBQ, and planters for growing flower or veggies. I think The Franklin's will be very happy here for years to come!

    Side Note: I am on vacation/Holiday and don't have access to my desktop so using a laptop and the lighting doesn't seem as good on it? Apologies for slightly dark pictures.

    Thank you.

    Q3: I've got a second story (as well as front/back deck stairs), but it's accessed by external stairs? I have excluded them from the count because:

    "Interior floor space can be no more than 50 squares total"

    Hope this is also OK?

    If it is, I'm all but done with the house except for the yard and cluttering :)

    @Lisa17ann I really love the interior of your home. Although it is modern it's so cozy.
    and @Zita1966z What an interesting take on the challenge. I really like the kitchen design! Where'd you get those cabinets?! Did they come with Spa?! I so need Spa....

    Thank you SO much @mommataurus2 It is a really challenge for me doing modern anything I'm such a cottage/traditional builder that it means so much to me! I love your A frame as well! I've been wanting to do one for ages because I keep seeing them done so well and yours is another added to my list of beautiful A frames! It looks so spacious and I love the window shelves with plants just adorable! I have all packs for the Sims4 (because I'm just that addicted lol) and I have no clue about the counters either! They are stunning. But, MissZita has her ways of building I will never understand :D

  • EmmaVaneEmmaVane Posts: 6,503 Member
    Yep, those counters/cabinets are from Spa. They are smexi.
  • mommataurus2mommataurus2 Posts: 1,845 Member
    Aww thank you @Lisa17ann for your kind comments. I had never done an A-frame before. :) So this was fun. I wish i had more clutter to put on the shelves but I guess clutter free shelving is more modern...Just hate mooing everything in place. Yes we should just have her change her screen name to The Royal Zita1966! lol! Her builds make me want to drop to my knees and proclaim my unworthiness lmbo!

    House finished. Turned out nice, but unusual, so I don't know if it will be to everyone's taste. Time to make the Franklins. :P

    @BuildnShare Hi, it's been awhile since I've submitted an entry for a round, but I love small builds and couldn't resist giving this a go. I'm absolutely loving all the entries submitted so far! \o/ Great job! I have a question though...

    I'm assuming the answer is, 'no, they don't count because they're outside', but, do decks, porches and custom made roofs count toward the 50 tile limit? I think I'm good on the interior living space, it's one floor and 48 tiles, but I also have two porches and a side deck with an attached pool and a custom made plant trellis roof above the deck on the build.

    I'm not so concerned about the porches, but the custom roof I made with the deck tool and fencing so it shows as a second floor when it really is not. Thanks! :)

    I'm still waiting to hear if external stairs are okay. Might need to rebuild. :p

    I've made the Franklins and will continue play testing later. Catching up on some shows for a bit.

    Argh... Had issues with being able to sleep in the bed, but not WooHoo... Rearanged bedroom several different ways... Ended up putting it back how it was with the bed moved slightly. Needs 1.5 tiles between bottom of bed and dresser, it seems, even though I only need 0.5 tile elsewhere.

    Also... Playtesting with 2 sims... I usually play single sims. I don't like it :/
