    Hey @BuildnShare I was just wondering what you personally mean when you say Gymnasium? When I think gymnasium I think about our Jr.High and High School gymnasiums that had basketball hoops, a stage, and bleachers, with a big open space to play basketball, run around, or play another indoor sport. Is this what you are meaning, or do you mean something more like a gym with workout equipment? Sorry if that seems trivial but I know certain words mean different things in different places.

    My question is whether or not the features on the lot need to be playable? I can build bunk beds but the top one won't be usable. Is that in accordance to the rules or do major interactive features need to maintain their game play functionality?

    well in my opinion
    id say there needs to be the bare minimum of functional beds (bottom beds in the room) so.....youd have to make 4 bunk beds and then you will have met the requirements of the rule whether you put beds on top of them and make them bunks or not ;) like if you do 2 bunks.....even though there is 4 beds only 2 are functional

    We meant a gym area for working out in, with treadmills, weights etc. I don't think that you could fit another large hall into this build!!

    You need to have four functional beds in each of the dorm rooms. Major features such as number of beds etc need to be playable.

    I have a question
    Any idea how to separate a creche from an early years learning space ?
    I am not sure what items I should be aiming to place, in these two spaces!
    In my mind I am thinking the drawing desks/child violin in the "learning" area and just toys and soft furnishings in the other

    I think the cache is a nursery and early learning a play room

    while a nice safe warm and fuzzy orphanage seems cute....a workhouse just seems more fun for me to build...yet i suppose that'd be more prison like.....*wheels start turning*

    The way I took it, a creche is for toddlers (pre-k)...like a play area. In French it's a term for day care. Early Education center is more geared towards learning activities and for elementary school students but can include toddlers as well. I think the main difference is the learning/educational focus in one area over the other.

    Hi @Nhicks - we need a double bed in each of the staff's rooms. Hope that clarifies things.

    As previously mentioned the creche should be targeted towards babies and toddlers. I know we don't have toddlers yet, but who knows what the future will bring. The early learning centre is for grade school (primary in the UK). Will add this to the OP to clarify.

    Sounds like a challenge within a challenge to me :D

    @FaithofKaela your build is looking fab already, such a creative idea for the gym.
