    You say we can change roofing and stairs, does this mean cosmetically or are we allowed to move the stairs and change the roof?

    @BuildnShare, are we allowed to change the elevations/terrain of the lot? for example, can we flatten the land, alter where the hill is, etc?

    ENTRY DETAILS: I loved the house that Simtresa posted, with its sloping lot and daylight basement and I wanted to keep the character of the lot but just clean it up and make it pretty. Somehow in sectioning off the house to get a new layout, it kept on going in a very traditional direction, and I got this idea that the people that live there are restoring it to its former glory as an early 20th century frame farmhouse. I was all set to decorate it in a formal traditional manner, but things kept on going in a looser, more Bohemian direction. I decided to go with it and the build turned out very warm and homey.

    @ellejoyner I was just looking through your imgur slides, and want to suggest adding some birds-eye/top down views of each of your floors, so viewers can get a sense of the layout of each of the floors.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I thought i would change the style of the house: modern shapes, but this time with warm colors. I added a couple of walls that make up "rooms", but I only used these as columns at the corners of the house, and as a base for the sloping roof to decorate the building. For the interior design, I started primarily from this orange color. I hope you like it! :)

    Only reason I didn't do this is cause the gallery already does so I wasn't sure if that would be redundant ;)

    Gallery images are pretty small, and the layout views tend to be walls down. We get much more information and detail from both if you include them in your slideshow.

    @tunafishfish, your slideshow is missing the birds-eye view and layout images too. Though your description is very good.

    Part 2

    ENTRY DETAILS: This home has an eclectic country feel for a burgeoning family. I tore down all the walls on the first floor for an open concept family room, kitchen and dining area. Upstairs is a quaint reading area next to the teen girl's room with artwork by Babewire. She has her own modern bathroom to match. For the parents, the master's decor was inspired by the beautiful wall art by Babewire. The master bathroom enjoys a nice tub as well as shower and beautiful decor.
    In the basement is a spacious game room complete with bar, ping pong table, game table and video games. There's also the children's room for baby, toddler and child. Next to that is a beautiful bathroom as well as a country inspired office. To round out the home is a nice laundry room.

    Outside, there's a swingset and toddler pool, Patchy, yoga mat to enjoy the beautiful flowers. Bees and grub center for gardening. Jacuzzi and outdoor seating with bar. On the side is a horseshoe set and a secret wishing well!

    haha good to know! I use mostly my phone for the forums (cause I'm a lunatic who enjoys torture, I guess?) so I never even noticed the difference! I'll add a few in before the 31st (unless you can't change after submission?)

    ENTRY DETAILS: First of all... the amount of poop used on the original lot is insane :lol: I wanted to keep the outside close to the original house so I kept the green siding and the windows. I added a few more here and there just to add in more light. I kept this as a single family home, there are 4 bedrooms with plenty of room for more beds for a growing family, or it can be used as a large rental house. I also wanted to utilize as much as the space as possible so I added a patio area to the front of the house and used the back yard for the kids and gardening. The basement and first floor were rearranged. I forgot to take pictures of the laundry room but its small anyway and just has a shelf, washer and dryer, and the broom and ironing board.

    @Clousinators You can say that again. I thought I'd gotten it all out when I finished my renovation, but when I moved my legacy family into the lot, I discovered one rogue poop in the walls of the basement. @SimTresa did a fantastic job of dirtying up the original lot.
