    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: Larson Family Home Tour
    ENTRY DETAILS: Pat and Jamie Larson are taking on a challenge of raising 4 nieces and nephews, so I decided to take on the challenge of building them a house. For the exterior of the house I wanted to keep a little of the original build shape so the front porch area and nearby walls are the same, the rest of the house I tried to make visually appealing with lots of different angles. I picked the lot in Brindleton because I felt it gave it a more traditional home feel and its a nice spacious lot with great views. 4 bedrooms, 4 bath, a game room, home office, covered and uncovered porch, pond, garden, firepit, and basketball court. It has a little of everything for everybody. I was on vacation for a while and ran short of time so I could have done more but I think the house is perfect for the Larson Family and all their new interests. Maybe they can use the leftover money to take a nice vacation together as well

    Your latest clients barely wait for Karl to open the door before striding past, looking sleekly sophisticated and confident in their matching suits. “We apologise for barging in, but we’re in a hurry, we need to be at court in an hour,” the one on the right says, impatiently smoothing down a lock of unruly hair.
    “I understand. Mr. Lau, isn’t it? What can I do for you?” You ask at his brisk nod.
    “We have a list of our needs,” the other attorney, who must be Adil Bailey, says, unfolding a sheet of paper.
    “Thank you, but I’d like to hear from you exactly what you’re looking for,” you say.
    “We’re getting married, and want to start our own law office together rather than continue to work at separate law offices. We also need to combine our households. We only have enough simoleons for one lot, Justin Lau explains.
    Mr. Bailey nods. “That’s why we want a law office with living quarters upstairs, to save on money.. The office portion needs to have at least two offices, a restroom, conference room, and waiting room. A kitchenette would be convenient but not necessary if it can’t be done.”
    “Upstairs, we’d like one or two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a great room,” Justin adds. “Keep the landscaping simple, please, we don’t have much time for yard work.”
    You nod, making notes of everything. “What’s the budget?”
    “Will 100,000 do?”
    “It should. Do you have any color or design preferences?”
    “Bold colors, with lots of wood and leather,” Mr. Lawson replies before Mr. Bailey can open his mouth.
    “The rest we leave in your very capable hands,” Mr. Bailey says.
    “Thank you for the vote of confidence. I think we can have your new office and home ready in one month,” you say, standing to shake hands.
    “Good It’ll be nice not to have to worry about a commute,” Mr. Lau says just as his phone rings. He pulls it out to answer even as he turns to leave.
    Mr. Bailey only has time for a quick wave and apologetic glance before he too is on his phone.

    The Brief:
    The budget is 100,000
    Lot size: 30x20
    The office space on the main level must have two offices.
    Must have a restroom (or two)
    Must include a reception and waiting area.
    Optional kitchenette.
    The house:
    At least one bedroom and bathroom.
    Must have a great room - kitchen/living/dining combination.


    Sim Challenge

    Create Justin Lau and Adil Bailey and show them in their home/office. You can pick all their traits, likes and dislikes. Be sure to show all their outfits.

    Room Challenge

    Budget: 10k
    Build the office reception and waiting area.
    Remember to include the entirety of the hashtag #bns152 or your entry will not be judged! The deadline for this challenge is 31 August 2021, no later than 23:59:59 New York Time/EDT.

Unfortunately, since your lot has cc, it won't show up in the browser gallery. It will in the in-game gallery, as long as you check the box to include custom content.
    Yes it is possible to share photos from flickr as long as you set your album to be public. You should be able to look up how to do that.
    Thanks for the welcome. I did google how to share an embedded photo here in the forums, and I've done it in the past! I was trying to get the little shortcut button to work, but I'll just have to look up the manual tags. :smile:

    So, I can't share a link to my gallery with my entry because of the cc is how I'm reading that. I do see my lot in my gallery in game, but couldn't find it in the gallery in a web browser...now I understand it's because of the cc. Thanks again for the response. I hope my entry is valid with just the slideshow link. But if not, I sure had fun doing a challenge again after 10 years. LOL

    ENTRY DETAILS: I chose to spend the big bucks on a lot, giving Justin & Adil prime downtown real-estate for their Law Firm. The Office is designed with dark wood paneling on the walls and a mostly carpeted space for comfort and sound control. There are two offices, a conference room and a staff room with a kitchenette as requested. The furniture is mostly red leather but I didn't want to go too bold for a office space. I wanted the clients to feel safe and comfortable there without the distraction of a bunch of colors. The upstairs residential unit is a different story. I have designed it as more of a loft style, giving it dark hardwood floors and plastered brick walls. I used bright colors throughout the home in the furniture as well as the artwork on the walls. There are two bedrooms in the unit as well as two bathrooms. I have also given the couple a deck off the Master suite to enjoy.

    ENTRY DETAILS:

    For the office part of the house, I went for a sleek modern cosmolux style to make it look more professional.

    For the residential part of the house, I decided to decorate it in MCM-style. This is so that the décor is in line with the clients’ design preference of using bold colors, with lots of wood and leather.

    To ensure a smooth visual transition between the office and residential parts of the house, I used a orange/green colour scheme throughout the house.

    ENTRY DETAILS: This beautiful business lot is easily accessible and there are two Spa on the adjacent lots. Therefore, it is quiet and peaceful at night, so it is also suitable for an apartment. It also has a nice view of the water. On the lower level I used more serious dark colors plus red, and upstairs in the comfortable home orange and green are the predominant colors. Whith the 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms this home will suit them for a long time. I hope Justin and Adil will have a good time here. I used basegame only for this challenge.

    Welp. I was gonna join... had one room left (out of a four story townhouse) to decorate annnnd my game crashed while saving. I lost the entire build. Took me the better part of the entire day, so there's that. With a kid who's vomiting and my hubby working a 12 hour shift tomorrow, I'm just gonna go ahead and bow out. Good luck, entrants!

    CHALLENGE – 152: Home Sweet Office

    FORUM ID: @icanhasims
    ORIGIN ID: icanhassims
    LEVEL: Established
    SIMS 4 LOT NAME: Preeminent Domain in Magnolia Promenade
    NEW LOT LINK: Office/Loft Combo
    LOT COST: 3000
    GALLERY COST: 85,437
    TOTAL COST: 88,437
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: https://icanhassims.weebly.com/152-home-sweet-office.html
    ENTRY DETAILS: This office/loft combo is perfect for the professional sim(s) who is busy taking care of business with the convenience of living on the same property. Considering their busy schedule, landscaping consists of easy to manage décor, leaving wildflowers, wild lavender, and low maintenance fountains. The office half has two personal offices, reception area, bathrooms, and conference room/kitchenette. The loft has a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living room, reading area, and BBQ area outside.
    Because of the size and orientation of the lot, I really wanted to elongate the building to better fit it. So, I decided to create a loft with the bedroom and bathroom above the office side of the building with the rest of the loft built back behind it. I also basically created a two-sided building with each end of the lot having their own entryway and décor.
    I took into consideration the clients’ desire for bold colors, and including a lot of leather and wood. Both the office space and loft area abound with color, different hues helping differentiate between the various rooms. I focused in on the loft to present more leather furniture, though both sides have plenty of wood furniture as well.

    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Sure!

    ENTRY DETAILS: Justin & Adil have just gotten engaged! As long as they're merging households, they decided to merge their legal practices as well. Adil is a bit more outspoken & Self Absorbed than Justin, who tends to be more proper and gentler. In some ways they may seem like opposites, but in the end, they share the same life goals, primarily to become as rich as possible so that they can enjoy their hobbies outside of work.
    I envision Adil as being an arrogant individual while Justin is always politely apologizing for him behind his back as they leave.
