    #BnS120 - There's Some History There

    The deadline for this challenge is 5th June 2019

    You can easily pretend the flutter in your stomach is just the plane beginning its final descent. The flight attendants have already walked the cabin to remind everyone to put their trays and seat-backs upright. It hardly seems like it’s been only 14 hours since you got the call from your former architectural professor from University.

    The recent droughts have produced at least one small silver lining, and you’ve been asked to come visit the newly unearthed archaeological dig.

    “You’ll love it,” the excited voice on the other end of the line had said. “After all, architecture is just as much about history as any other field. And who better to appreciate these buildings?”

    Your professor always did have a flair, but to be invited to an honest-to-goodness dig site is a greater honor than you ever expected! To walk in the ancient footsteps of those who built before you, see the age-old tools - some of which are even still used today - and really experience a moment out of time.

    The tires touch concrete with barely a jolt, the pilot is a good one! Before long you’ve got your luggage in tow and are greeted by a friendly face from years ago.

    “I’m so glad you could make it!” Professor Webb says, taking your hand in a warm shake.

    “I was so surprised to get your call, but I couldn’t possibly pass up this opportunity!” you say.

    “Well, I have been following your career for years. You’ve made me so proud! You were always so eager and bright, but you’ve blown me away with your works. I though, if anyone would appreciate this momentous opportunity, it would be you!”

    As the driver takes your suitcases and loads them into the trunk, you and your old professor climb into the back seat, catching up on old times. The drive lasts a few hours, and you’re eager to stretch your legs by the time you arrive at the dig. But it’s your breath you’re having to catch as you are lead up to the expansive site.

    “Oh! Oh my goodness!” The scene is extraordinary! So much more than you had imagined. Not just a hole in the ground with some items of interest, but there is almost a whole foundation uncovered, detailed sections of flooring, even some posts still visible around the exterior.

    Professor Webb leads you down to the lowest levels where you can get a good look. “Well? What do you think?”

    “I think this is… a chance of a lifetime! I can’t thank you enough!”

    The professor smiles, so glad you accepted the offer to come and help rebuild the ancient settlement.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Just a quick one I made up, the pictures didn't turn out so good (maybe game camera settings) and this description is terrible I forgot to upload him and doing it last min that's why he isn't happy. (what a surprise lol) (maybe game camera settings) He's in the mid 50's. I went for a premade outfit but thats because it has a canvas jacket with lots of pockets and large pant pockets with is great for an archaeologist, leather boots. Because he can't pack much when he's out in a dig he has a fun formal look to spice up his look. His athlete clothes are just a plain shirt and sweatpants that he can wear with other outfits and his sneakers his only pair to save space in this suitcase. He has a robe for warm climates and can wear the shirt and sweats if it's colder to bed, slippers are a most to go to the bathroom at night when sleeping in a tent so you don't have to put on shoes. His party look is on the plain side and once again can be used in other looks. Hot weather look is rolled up pants (can be rolled down to avoid scraps and stuff at the digs) a t-shirt with a bottom up over it encase it gets cool at night, scarf for sand and a hat for sun protection. Cold weather is a traditional professor look that he would wear in the classroom.

    #BnS121 - Breaking Out Of The Box

    The deadline for this challenge is 19th June 2019

    While you are checking out at the grocery store, a young boy and girl come in and ask the cashier if she has any boxes for them. The cashier assures them that she does and will have them brought to the front as soon as she finishes checking out the short line of customers. You wonder what kind of school project they are doing as you walk out to the parking lot and put your groceries in the car. You push your empty cart back into the store as the children come out, struggling to carry four large, flattened cardboard boxes.

    "I hope Daddy will be able to make us a bedroom with these boxes!" the girl says excitedly as the boxes slip in her hands.

    "Hold them tighter," the little boy commands as he stops and waits for her to get a better grip on the cardboard.

    Curious as to the actual use of the boxes now, you offer to help the children carry them. They agree. You grab one end of the flattened boxes, and the children each grab a corner on the other end. A short walk down the road and into an alley later, and an extremely unique sight greets you. It is a series of large cardboard boxes made into a sort of house with what looks like multiple rooms.

    "That is our castle," the little boy says, pointing to the cardboard structure. "Daddy keeps adding rooms as we get more boxes."

    "Daddy is very handy," the little girl adds seriously.

    A woman's voice calls out, "Amada! Bernardo! Is that you?" The woman emerges from the huge set of multi-sized boxes, carrying a baby and leading a toddler. She freezes when she sees you.

    You introduce yourself and explain that you are just helping the children carry the large boxes. Then you casually ask, "Do you live in these boxes? They are definitely well put together! Is that wax on the top?" You are seeing gobs of white, drippy stuff all over the tops of the boxes, and some of it is dried along the seams.

    The woman thaws a little and says, "Yes, wax. We melt candles to make the house more water prof from the rain. It is my husband Domingo's idea."

    "Genius!" you exclaim and are rewarded with a slight smile.

    The kids beg to show you the inside, and you agree that you would like to see it. Reluctantly, the woman agrees and leads the way inside. Her children follow her, and you bring up the rear.

    The first room is about four feet tall and six feet long by five feet wide. You notice odd pieces of wood taped to the "seams" in the boxes to help hold them upright. There are magazine pictures taped to the walls to make the interior more homey. A shabby rug covers a large section of the floor.

    "This is our living room," Amada says shyly. "We sleep back there and our parents sleep in here."

    "Come and see," says Bernardo. All three of you pass through what could be called a hallway. A small room on the left has a ten-gallon paint bucket with a cover on it, and you pause to look at it.

    Amada sees you looking and says one word. "Toilet."

    "Ahh!" you say. Interesting indoor plumbing you think as you continue on to the room at the end. A little smaller than the living room, this room has sleeping bags covering the floor.

    "We will be able to build another bedroom as soon as Daddy gets enough boxes," Bernardo explains. "Then things will not be so cramped." Amada nods.

    "How long have you been living here?" you ask quietly.

    Bernardo looks at his hands. Finally Amada speaks. "Nearly two months. Daddy lost his job. He sold the car, but we still could not pay rent the next month. They kicked us out."

    "But Daddy does odd jobs whenever he can. The guy that owns the restaurant here let's us stay in his alley and use the hose for water," Bernardo adds defensively. "And our older sister Emelda works part time at a fast food restaurant. She brings us food at night that they think she has thrown out. Sometimes she picks up a few side jobs, too."

    "So, five children and two parents..." you say, thinking aloud. The children nod in agreement.

    Taking a last look around and leaving with words of encouragement to the family and a $50 donation for their needs, you venture out into the dusk. You slowly walk back to your car, vowing silently to help this family as much as you can.

    The next day you send an employee over to collect the father and oldest daughter for full-time jobs with good pay and benefits. You set them to work at your newest construction site, building their very own new home ( without telling them, of course).


    THE BRIEF


    You chip in §30,000 of your own money and manage to raise another §30,000 from generous community members for a total budget of §60,000.
    Use a 30x20 or 30x40 lot. The cost of the lot comes out of your §60,000 budget.
    Design a 4 bedroom/2 bath home for the destitute family.
    The toddler and baby will share a room. You can either have the two girls or Amada and Bernado sharing a room as well.
    Include laundry, an eat-in kitchen, a family room, and an outdoor play area for the kids.


    Room Challenge

    Create a bedroom room with two children sharing the space. The budget is $10,000.


    Sims Challenge

    Create the family of seven. Include likes, skills, and clothing choices.

    Please use the whole of hashtag #BnS121 when you upload your creations. Any build, room or household without this hashtag will not be judged.

    ENTRY DETAILS: A smartly engineered home. I designed this as if the first 30G was donated money, and the other 30G was from items donated by the community. The solar panels donated by the Energy company. The garden plot put together by the local gardening club. Counters and fridge donate by a restaurant supply company. Books and toys donate by town members, etc.
    This home has the solar panels to reduce electric bill costs, Rain Tank to help with the Garden plot and to lower water costs. Fire places to reduce heating costs. Garden plot to supplement food stores. Although there still needs to be some homey touches needed, it is a lovely home for the group of 7
    The Main living area is on the 2nd floor, to take advantage of the natural light from the many Windows. Kids can do their homework at the dining table, or at the computer desk. A toy box for the kids to play as well. Mom can watch from the living room, or while cooking. The bedrooms are on the first floor.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    This house is built to provide natural air conditioning, by putting most of the living areas in the basement, where the temperature is more constant. It does have a thermostat, just in case the temperature does need to get regulated manually. The attic features a master bedroom, space to hang laundry, and a small study area. The ground floor has a live-in kitchen, bathroom, and a bedroom. The basement features a living room, two bedrooms, a bathroom and an extra room.
    When the family heard the house they built was for them, they were overjoyed. The parents decided to spend the money mostly on family spaces and the kids’ rooms and kept their own bedroom simple but comfortable. Emelda wants to get big in fashion, and because she has a job and is making money of her own, she has a big walk-in closet for all the clothes she’s certainly going to buy now. She also got her own laptop for schoolwork and fashion designing. The bedroom on the ground floor has been designated the toddler/baby room and is least decorated of all, as the family figured the tot and baby would grow out of it so fast it was a waste of money to decorate it too much. The shared kids’ room, however, has been fully decorated to each kid’s individual taste. They each have their own desk for doing homework and they both got to choose how to paint their own half of the room and what carpets to get on the floor, etc. The extra room was turned into an activities room and was decorated using a little of everybody’s input. It features many different activities, so the kids can finally have a chance at developing whatever skill they want to. For the living room, the family decided to keep it simple and cozy. They have a nice wood burner, a bunch of couches and comfy chairs, and plenty of plants to give the space a less basement-y feeling. Every bedroom has their own laundry basket, so collecting laundry is easy for whoever is doing it this time (this family all do their part in the household). There is a clothesline outside, and one in the attic for the rare occasions of rain in the desert, or when a sandstorm is brewing. Outside on the patio they also have a small area dedicated to growing their own veggies, and an apple tree was planted outside to commemorate the joyous day of them moving into this wonderful house. The patio also features a barbecue and two picnic table, so they can all enjoy their meals outside if they want. At the side of the house there are two beehives and a lot of planted wild flowers, for mom’s new hobby: honey making. Then, at the back, there’s a little woodworking shed for dad, and a play area for the kids, including a kiddie pool to cool off in the desert heat.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Full House is just as it sounds, a house made for a deserving family who can form their own basketball team. Originally the plan was for a 4 bedroom and 2 bath home. However this family has been cramped for too long. This home has a bedroom for everyone, no need to share. And I threw in an extra bathroom to help their sanity. This home hosts an open concept floorplan. The nice size family room is perfect to watch a nice wholesome Disney movie or maybe a family game night. It's not easy for a family of seven to all sit down and eat dinner together. This is not a problem for this home, with a table large enough to fit everyone and a few extra spots on the island for guests. There are a lot of stinky socks in a family of seven, luckily this home includes a laundry area. Who will do the laundry is a whole other story.

    ENTRY DETAILS: The down on their luck family will be moving into a modern new home that provides everyone with ample space. (FYI, I discovered only after I had finished the build--and was attempting to playtest--that bunks/loft beds no longer seem to work. I Googled around, and this seems to be a thing since the patch in November 2018?? I haven't played in a while and was not aware of this, but I didn't want to change my whole room around for the sake of playability in this case.) ALSO...Bernardo's portion of the room in the final picture on Imgur is slightly different than the top down view. I swapped out the pool ladders for wall shelves and added a guardrail. I just didn't go through and get new top down pics.

    ENTRY DETAILS: The thought that popped into my head was that I acquired two new but incomplete single wide trailers one red the other blue and butted them together at the hallway and then added the porches and stuff. The front stick-out is the study and the living room, the back stick-out is the kitchen with eat-in dining table. I find this layout very playable as my preference for playing large families is to be on one level. This is a nice fenced lot near a playground with plenty of greenery around even though it is in the city.

    HOUSEHOLD: Reyes https://www.ea.com/games/the-sims/the-sims-4/pc/gallery/AFA665858EEE11E98C6560CCA9235FE7
    Diego Reyes is a Salvadorada native who left for Windenberg when he was young, wanting to find a life different from what was available at home. He met Renata, who was working as a barista at the time, and quickly fell in love. The pair didn't wait long to start their family, and for a while life was good, if not luxurious. Then it all went wrong and the family ended up on the street after Diego lost his job and their rental. Now, with their modest new home and new jobs for Diego and Emelda, things are looking up again.
    I kept the family's clothing simple, mostly basics with some Salvadoradan influences mixed in to reflect their heritage. Nothing too fancy for this family, but they're not necessarily ragged either.

    ENTRY DETAILS: After living for some time in a house made of cardboard we thought the family would enjoy a traditional and homey building. The parents room is downstairs and we tried to create an en suite bathroom mixed with a shared half bathroom for family and visitors. A living room with a reading nook and the eat-in kitchen complete this floor. Upstairs is for the kids. The baby and the toddler share a room ready for two toddlers and easy to upgrade for two kids. Bernardo has his own bedroom and the two big sisters share a bedroom. The laundry and another full bath equipped with a potty for the toddlers are in this floor too. From the kitchen or by the right side of the house you can access the backyard, with a swing, a kiddie pool and a sandbox for the children; and a table under an umbrella for the grown ups. The lot is open in the back as there’s a community bbq zone where they will be able to mingle with the neighbors.

    #BnS122 - Summer Camp

    The deadline for this challenge is 10th July 2019

    It isn’t often you meet a client at a site, but this is the perfect day for it. The sun is shining and the whole land seems to turn its face toward its warmth and smile. There is a gentle breeze rustling through the trees and a bee bumbles past you as you walk from your car toward the shrieks of laughter coming from the children.

    From across the field you see Mrs. Davis smile and wave at you. You return the gesture and soon are shaking hands.

    “Thank you so much for agreeing to meet me here,” Mrs. Davis says.

    “It is my pleasure,” you say. “Such a beautiful site. And the children already seem to love it!”

    “We are hoping to make that a reality for many more children,” she says. “So many kids who have only ever known the city. Summer camp might be the first time they’ve ever been around trees and open air.”

    You nod and take out your notebook. “So what are you looking for?”

    “The usual, mostly,” Mrs. Davis says as she fends off a pair of rambunctious children playing swords with sticks. “Cabins for the kids, toilets and baths, mess hall, office...”

    You are both distracted by the sudden wail of a child having fallen down and scraped a knee. Another adult scoops him up.

    “Oh yes, and a nursing station,” she says with a sigh. “Of course, outdoor activities, too. That is the main point.”

    “Of course,” you agree, jotting down ideas already as you look around you and think of how you can fit things in without losing the natural beauty here.

    “When do you think it can be ready?” Mrs. Davis asks.

    “I think you can expect your first batch of summer camp recruits two weeks from now,” you say with a smile, loving how surprised she looks.

    The Budget is §199,000 (lot cost must be included in this amount)

    ENTRY DETAILS: This is my first ever build for a challenge….it’s been fun! My screen shots are nowhere near the great pics I see you guys posting but I hope you get the idea…..
    Camp SunnySim is all about getting back to basics and into the outdoors, and I’ve tried to make it feel like the camp blends in with the surrounding area. With space for 8 girls and 10 boys, the sleeping might be basic but the camp offers lots of activities…swimming and canoeing on the lake, fishing, horse riding, bike riding, axe throwing, camp fires and a climbing wall…..there’s also arts & crafts and a chance for kids to show off their talents on stage in the nightly show.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Yes please
    CREDIT FOR CC/RECOLORS: Lots of CC used – some recoloured by me (I learned some SimsStudio just for this challenge!) I love CC and got much of it before I realised I’d need to credit but includes – Severinka, SimDoughnit, Ozyman, Budgie….apologies to the many other amazing artists that I’ve definitely missed! I tried to keep the CC cost in line with maxis costs (no $1/high quality etc)

    #BnS123 - The Family Emergency

    The deadline for this challenge is 24th July 2019

    You take a sip of tea as you gaze out of your office window, relaxing for a minute before you start designing for a new client. But there is a brisk knock on the door before Karla immediately bursts in looking excited and a little stressed out.

    "Sorry to disturb you, but they keep saying it is an emergency," she sputters. Karla is Karl's sister whom you’ve taken on as a backup assistant while Karl is taking a well deserved vacation for a few weeks. In retrospect, it may not have been your best idea ever. You make a mental note to remind her to wait for the okay to come in after knocking.

    "Who is saying that? What is going on?" you ask, feeling just a little stressed yourself by Karla’s frazzled manner. Karla may be Karl’s twin, but the two couldn’t be more different.

    "The..." Karla consults her notebook. "The Costello family. Anthony, Irma, Regina, Maximilian,
    Roberto, and...well, the baby. " She looks up and smiles widely, as if she has done a good job.

    "Perhaps it would be easiest if you just let them in." You smile back and can't help wondering what the emergency is.

    The dark-haired Costello family piles through the doorway. Karla closes the door a little too hard behind them, and everyone, including you, jumps. The man is tall and thin. The woman, who is holding a sleeping baby. The girl is a lanky teenager in old, faded jeans, and you note that her eyes are glued to her cell phone, tuning out everything around her. The twin boys are clearly dressed to try to mimic their older sister’s style, but they look like they have a bit of baby fat to get rid of in order to pull it off. The baby asleep in the woman’s arms (his mother?) looks just like a little chubby angel.

    "Hello, welcome!” you say, trying to put the family at ease. Please have a seat and tell me about yourselves.”

    Anthony gives you a firm handshake before taking his seat. You notice gray hairs and fine wrinkles, which were not distinguishable from a distance. When you glance at Irma, you notice she has the same gray hairs and fine wrinkles of age. They’re not elders yet, but they’re not as young as you first thought. The kids all look at the floor, sad and quiet.

    Irma takes a deep, breath heavy with sadness and emotion. "We are sorry to burst in on you like this, but we are having a family emergency and desperately need help right away."

    Anthony, also clearly fighting back emotion, avoids your eyes for a few seconds as he begins to explain, “The rogue tornado that tore through Sunset Valley a few days ago killed our only son Chip and his wife Delilah. The children, thank goodness, escaped the worst of the storm since they were in class at the Community School for the Gifted at the time."

    He shakes his head sadly and looks up at you. "So we are taking the children to raise, but our one bedroom condo in Bridgeport is just not enough space for six people."

    "I am very sorry for your loss, but I do agree with you. That condo sounds very cramped," you say sympathetically. "Sounds like you need a new house, and fast."

    "Well, yes and no,” he clarifies. “We have a fairly large plot of land with a vacation cabin on it in Willow Creek. It already has two tiny bedrooms - just big enough for two single beds and a dresser in each. A little bathroom, a hallway, and a family room with a small galley kitchen comprise the rest of the cabin. Great for a few days vacation, obviously, but not for constant living," Anthony relays.

    Irma chimes in. "We are really hoping you could add at least two more baths, expand the current spaces, and add at least two more bedrooms. And a laundry room is vital - we’re doing laundry constantly with all these precious darlings," she says, gesturing to her new brood.

    Anthony adds, "Irma is the best baker I know, so the kitchen needs plenty of counter space, please." Irma blushes a bit with pride and gives Anthony a beaming smile.

    "What about style, colors, finishes?" you ask. Irma, obviously the planner of the family, hands you a piece of paper which you start to glance over.

    Anthony explains, "Irma made up of a list of our must haves and likes. Our budget is only $135,000. Do you think you can make it all work?" He looks slightly anxious.

    You smile reassuringly. "Definitely! We can have the house renovated to your specs in no more than two weeks. Is that soon enough?"

    "We really appreciate that!" Irma says, tears welling in her eyes.

    Hiding a bit of emotion of your own, you lead Anthony and Irma through the paperwork and begin planning their new family home.


    THE BRIEF


    You must use the house Rindle Rose which totals §36,774. You have §135,000 to spend in addition to that amount, for a total of §178,000 (rounded up from §177,774).
    You can place the house on any lot Willow Creek, but you must include the cost of the lot in the §178,000 budget.
    You can change all of the wallpapers, flooring and interior furnishings as you see fit.
    You cannot delete the outer walls, but you can completely gut the inside and add walls onto the current exterior.
    Keep the existing foundation and wall heights the same - these cannot be changed.
    You can add a basement or upper floor if you wish.
    The Costellos prefer soft pastels or neutral colors for the living areas and master suite.

    MUST INCLUDE:

    a kitchen geared towards baking, with plenty of counter space.
    a laundry room.
    a total of at least three full bathrooms.
    a total of at least four bedrooms (should be larger than the current bedrooms).
    a laundry room [Sims 4 - Laundry stuff is not required - be creative with MOO and the objects you have in your game]

    Childrens’ Preferences:

    Regina is into pink, purple, and gold. She enjoys ballet, ice skating, and painting.
    Maximillian's favorite colors are green and black. He loves football and video games.
    Roberto's favorite color is blue. He loves Westerns, cowboys , horses, and video games.
    The baby (can be a toddler) responds well to bright, primary colors. It loves learning toys and teddy bears.


    Sim Challenge

    Create the family and show them enjoying their new home. Include their likes, skills, and jobs where applicable. Also show pictures of their clothes.


    Room Challenge

    Create a nursery for the baby/toddler. It can be for a baby or toddler of any gender. Keep in mind the preferences as described in the brief.

    ENTRY DETAILS: This challenge is a collaboration between me and my 11 year old Sims addict (I asked for some ideas on a bedroom and she took them all over then just got involved with the entire build!). We’ve fallen in love with the Costello family!
    We kept the exterior look and feel of the original cottage at the front of the house so that it wouldn’t be too much of a big change for the devastated family when coming home but fully modernized the interior into an open plan space to enjoy family life. Four beds, four baths and a laundry room with plenty of outdoor seating too.
    The build cost was higher until I started replacing with the new freebie build items but I think the Costellos will enjoy having some extra savings to spend on trips and holidays!

    ENTRY DETAILS: Even with their new house to fit their new family, the Costello family wanted to honor their late son / father. The sunflowers in the front yard were planted in honor of him, as sunflowers were his favorite flower. The living area is lined with floral arrangements thanks to the generosity and condolences of their friends, family, and community. In the upstairs hangout area, Chip's surfboards can be found, as surfing during vacations was a passion of his. The renovation team wanted to make the move a little less difficult on the kids by creating amazing bedrooms for them that they can use for years to come.

This would be a good room for an independent toddler to build the thinking skill. In my build, I have a closet built into the wall however I've removed the divider so that it could be uploaded to the gallery as one room. I usually don't put this much work into designing a single room, so this was a nice change of pace!

The home now has a basement for laundry and working out. The main floor has an open front room, a bedroom that was converted to an office, the pink half bath is still pink and the kitchen is a new addition. All the bedrooms are upstairs. There is a covered patio and pool and the rest of the back yard is without a doubt the playground of children.

    ENTRY DETAILS: The Costello vacantion home after the expansion. Everything the family needed and wanted was added, and hopefully they will love it!
    The old vacation cabin has been completely transformed and unrecognizable.
    It now has 5 bedrooms, and 4 full baths.
    A large living and dining area plus a very large kitchen with many counters.
    There are even counters on the porch in the backyard.
    The yard also has a pool, jacuzzi, sandpit and plenty of nice seats.
    The backyard doesn't get much sun during the day so i made sure they had a large balcony at the front of the home, with a lot of sun.
    Here they can go when they want more sun, and also do some gardening.
    Last, the basement, dedicaded to the kids, to play games, relax with friends, and have danceparties!

    ENTRY DETAILS: I have given the Costello's a large country farmhouse style home, with a wraparound deck. I have added onto the main floor and put a basement under the new addition, I specifically added the basement so that the family will have a place to go to be safe if another storm hits the area. I have also added a second floor where there are five bedrooms, so each grandchild can have their own room. I came in under budget when I was able to use the new free landscaping items (Yay!) So I would highly recommend to the Costello's to use the extra money to invest in a maid

    #BnS124 - Solving The Seniors Situation

    The deadline for this challenge is 7th August 2019

    You are walking in the park enjoying the crisp breeze on your face during your lunch hour. You notice some young children with a large collecting tin and a sign that reads, "Pleez donayt to r Grammies and Grampas." Bad spelling aside, you are intrigued and go over to ask the kids why they are collecting money for their grandparents.

    A freckle-faced little boy pipes up. "The floods got their houses. My grammy and grampy lost theirs. It floated away!"
    "My Nana's house got under water on the first floor. She can't bake us cookies anymore," adds a little girl with big green eyes. Tears run down her face.

    A young lady nearby comes over to comfort the little girl. "It is the whole street, really, that needs help," she explains as she hugs the girl. "With all the recent heavy rains, the river flooded. Most of the older homes were built close to the water, so they flooded or were washed away. The ones that flooded are full of dangerous black mold. The senior sims living there cannot afford to move or rebuild. I am in the process of setting up a website to accept donations for them, but the kids could not wait to get started!"

    You think things over for a few minutes. You had a really good year last year, and this year is doing even better so far. All things considered, you feel the urge to give back to the community- starting with these senior sims!

    "I think I know a way to help," you say brightly to the group. Turning to the young lady, you continue, "If you can gather names, number of occupants, and what they need in a home, I will see what I can do!"

    "You mean you will donate money to them individually?" the young woman asks, perplexed but pleased by your offer.

    You dig a card from your wallet and hand it to her. "Actually, I am an architect. I would be willing to donate my time, services, and some materials to rebuild these homes. Feel free to add my name to your list. Getting the press involved may be a good idea as well," you suggest. "I know many people around here have big hearts and would be willing to help!"

    The children cheer as the young lady thanks you sincerely. She promises to get the information to you as soon as possible.


    THE BRIEF

    Choose ONE of the three senior sims to build a house for, making to sure include all their needs/wants in the build.
    To prevent future flooding, the houses need to be built on stilts or foundations at least 8 steps high. No basements, please.
    Since the houses were near the river, try to have a water view (ocean or river ) or add a strip of water down one side of the property.
    The budget is $125,000. (Be sure to include the cost of the lot in this amount)

    The Senior Sims

    Mr. Bao Chang--needs one bedroom, a martial arts/exercise room, a bathroom with a shower, and a kitchen/family room combination. He prefers sunny and calming colors.
    Mrs. Aibreann Byrne--needs a bedroom, a large guest bedroom for grandkids to visit, a bathroom, and kitchen/family room combination with a space for baking cookies. She also loves plants and gardening.
    Mrs. Petunia Livingston--needs a bedroom, a large bathroom, and a kitchen/family room combination. She also needs a "creativity room" for her writing and painting.


    Room Challenge

    Create the kitchen/family room combination for ANY of the three senior sims listed.


    Sim Challenge
    Create the senior sim you chose to build for (or any of the three if you are not doing the build challenge). Show them enjoying their new home. Include their likes and skills where applicable. Also show pictures of their clothes.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Mr Bao Chang is a Chinese actor and martial artist. He's looking to start a new chapter in his life, teaching and choreographing fight scenes for the movies. He chose Brindleton Bay because it allows for a more relaxed lifestyle but still has excellent transit options to Del Sol Valley. Since Tail's End is near the docks it has live/work zoning. Two buildings are connected by a short skybridge. The smaller building is in use as his martial arts studio. The living quarters are private, his space to get away from it all!

    Mr Bao Chang is a Chinese actor and martial artist looking to start a quieter life. He's focusing on teaching and choreographing stunt scenes for the movies. This kitchen and family room is in the private, residence side of the property. Working with the Selvadoradan cabinets, the room uses peach, orange and yellow to promote a sunny mood. Contrasting bits of blue add a calming influence, mahogany wood tones bring masculinity.

    ENTRY DETAILS: (Be sure to tell us about your entry) Mrs Livingston Knows her house needs to be on stilts or high foundation but her legs just cant do stairs like they used to so as an added requirement the terrain had to be created so that there was minimal steps into her main door. Having lived for years on this family lot that has been handed down for years she was heartbroken when the old home had to be tore down due to all the mold from the flood. She did manage to save a couple of pieces that she could have placed in the new home. Her great grandparents bed and the Photos that were carefully restored. Having a new creative space is so exciting for her despite all the sadness of losing her home.

    ENTRY DETAILS: So, build a home that’s proof against a future flood with a house raised well above ground level that’s suitable for a senior citizen to live out the rest of her life …… and do it with a limited budget and deliver on a short timescale - certainly was challenge!
    However after lots of research into the latest anti-flood building methods (and using many generous donations from local communities and our friends at Maxis Corp) we believe we’ve come up with the perfect solution for Mrs Byrne that meets all the criteria and then some.
    The base premise of this eco-friendly build is to help avoid flooding whenever we can; next we ensured the build would survive intact if the floods reoccur and then we packed in as many features as we could to help Mrs Byrne cope if/when the worst does happen. Finally, as the majority of time life continues without natural disasters, we worked on making this home a lovely and accessible place to live for many years to come.
    We’ve included some shots of the neighbourhood to give you an idea of the extent the damage the flood caused in the area (I was having fun exploring the new edit items so thought I may as well use them to help the backstory!)

Just as her furnishings are bright and colorful, so is Petunia's wardrobe. She has her own unique style, as an artist should, wanting to be stylish while dressing appropriately for her age.

The house was built into a hill with tall strong stone foundations so she would be safe if another flood happened. And she wasn't disappointed - she absolutely loves her new house!

    #BnS125 - A Chalet Getaway

    The deadline for this challenge is 21st August 2019

    It is a chilly, rainy morning when Karl graciously shows in your next clients, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Weston Vanderclump III. They are a middle-aged couple with plenty of character. Mr. Vanderclump looks dark and gruff, almost mafia-like in a pin-stripe suit; his wife looks bored and snooty. You try not to smile too widely as you greet them. After everyone is seated, you ask what kind of house the couple is looking for.

    "We would like a fairly large vacation home," Mr. Vanderclump begins. "Chantal wants to get away for a little while."

    "So, are you looking for a beach house?" you ask Mrs. Vanderclump.

    She shakes her head slightly and looks down her nose at you. "Too common," she says in a voice so high it hurts your ear drums. You try to hide your surprise as she continues. "I am dreaming of a ski chalet in the mountains. I just love the snow! I grew up in the Alps, and that is where I want my retreat to be built. I want it to be spacious and inviting, with three bedrooms and two and a half baths. A large entertainment area is a must, since the kids may come up with friends from time to time. Hmmm...a loft to look at the views would be great, and a balcony or two would be nice. Space to house the snow mobiles and ski gear. Oh, that can be part of the garage." She looks at her husband as if she has just lost a puppy, and you turn a slight laugh into a cough.

    "You may need to eat," he says gently, "a place to clean clothes, and a servant's quarters."

    "True," she agrees, pouting a bit. "I want the outside to look like a traditional ski chalet on the outside, but the inside should be comfortable yet elegant. As in don't spare the expense." She looks down at her purse, then back at her husband. "A hot tub on a big party deck outside would be great as well. Just make it all look as ritzy as possible!"

    You look up from taking notes. "And the budget?" You look at Mr. Vanderclump expectantly, but he looks away.

    Mrs. Vanderclump speaks up again. "I am paying for the chalet with money I earned from doing voice work. I am a celebrity, you know! Anyway, I have $350,800 to use. Any money you can save I will put to new ski clothes, but the chalet is more important. How soon can you get it completed?"

    "It will take two weeks to complete," you tell her.

    "Marvelous! Thanks you very much and enjoy your trip!" Mrs. Vanderclump squeaks at you.

    As the couple depart, you mentally rummage in your closet for suitable clothes to take with you to the Alps!

    ENTRY DETAILS: 3 Story Mountain Chalet with a Lookout. 4 Car Garage (Plenty of room for snowmobiles. Also on the ground floor there is a swimming pool, Arts and Crafts room, a Gym, a Library, a Game room, a Disco/Dancing room, at the front, with large glass windows and doors leading to the 1sr floor Patio/Deck. There is also a 'fake' Hot tub on the Lower deck, as I don't have that game pack.
    Moving to the 2nd Floor you will find the 2 large Mast Suites, each with 2large walk ins, a Master Bath and dressing room. There are also 2 smaller bedrooms, for an extra Guest and the Butler. Outside of the Butler's Quarters, is also the Laundry. Filling out the rest of the 2nd Floor is a large Gallery for the resident Sims to hang their most impressive art and entry to the 2nd Level Deck. The center of the floor is dominated by a quad-sided firelace, with seating on all 4 sides.
    The Third Floor is all about food and drink, with a large Kitchen, build extra large for future proofing, if the owner decides to sell the lot for commercial use, as a B&B, Hotel or Lodge. The Dining Table seats 12+ guests. Along side the immediate dining are is a small pub, for refreshments. A Grand Piano is also situated in the dining area, for your guests to enjoy some relaxing music, whilst dining or lounging in one of either the larger lounging area, or one of the smaller, tucked away lounge areas. There are also 2 half baths on this level.
    Topping off the structure, at roof level, there is a small Lookout room, with a fabulous view of the valley below.
    NOTE: I hope all is situated. I made the mistake of not simply boring through and finishing everything in one go, and then I removed my mods folder, so that I could build and upload some simpler items and when I put it back, some things had changed and the price keeps fluxuating seemingly randomly. So, I uploaded the build before I could get too stressed about it. I still don't understand why it is not showing in the Gallery.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Nestled in the foothills of the mountains in Granite Falls National Park, this is a four-storey secluded vacation home that will be the perfect retreat for Chantal and Charles Vanderclump. Filled with lots of art housed in gallery halls, there is masses of space for both formal and informal entertaining, a sauna, indoor-outdoor pool, party deck with hot tubs, a viewing loft and much more. There is a master suite, two guest rooms and small apartment for the live in help. Oh and there is a total of 8 balconies if you count the entrance, plus the deck, so views at every turn!
    I wanted to try a large scale build which I haven’t done much of and had real fun with the exterior (roofs are tricky!!), but boy did it take some decorating! As I only got back from hols on Saturday so was short on time I once again enlisted the help of my 11 year old sims addict who decorated all bedrooms and the small apartment.

    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: https://imgur.com/a/ZaI625Z (O apologize for the mess it is in, but I don't have the strength to mess with again.)
    ENTRY DETAILS: I created the entire Vanderclump family. This includes Chantal, the rich voice actor, who is a Mansion Baron with business savvy, materialistic, a snob, and very self-assured and her husband Charles, who is fabulously wealthy with business savvy, a kleptomaniac ambitious, and neat and is rumored to be the head of a "family" of business associates (wink, wink). Hazel Rayann Sullivan is the family's long time housekeeper, and Mr. Vanderclump's bit of fluff, as he likes to call her. The two have a twelve year old daughter together named Brianna Charly Sullivan. Hazel is a master chef with essence of flavor, cheerful, neat, and jealous of Mr. Vanderclump's time away from her. Their daughter is erratic and an artistic prodigy. The married couple have two children: Bradford Dean Vanderclump and Roxy Marilyn Vanderclump. Brad is a chief of Mischief and dastardly, a snob, a kleptomaniac, and paranoid! He married an exotic young lady named Mai Lulee Chou Vanderclump, and she is a party animal and gregarious, hot headed, a dance machine, and a total slob. Basically , she was the gold digger who won him over with her good looks and fun ways. The couple has a toddler son that Mai Lulee does not want or care for. The baby's name is Rafe X Chou Vanderclump, and he is very fussy and demands his own way. Roxy, on the other hand, may just be the only sensible member of the family. She is an archaeology scholar and quick learner who is a bit of a goofball, a geek, and rather outgoing. She is still living at home since she is just out of college, but that may change soon! With this family, the drama never ends! From Mai Lulee's inappropriate attire to her bad mothering "skills," and the family trait of "borrowing," normal is just out of the question. On top of that, Charles is fairly open with his relationship with Hazel, at least in front of his wife Chantal. Somehow the older children and Brianna have no idea they are siblings. Brad and Mai Lulee often express their "love" out in the open, to the chagrin of everyone. Download the family and see just how messy their world really is!!

    #BnS126 -The Collection

    The deadline for this challenge is 4th September 2019

    “Alexander Benedict? Where have I heard that name before?” You wonder aloud, setting aside your coffee.

    “He’s a renowned explorer and collector. He has a knack for making rare discoveries and solving some of history’s mysteries along the way,” Karl reminds you.

    “Oh, that’s right.” You’re anticipating the man’s arrival now, trying to imagine what he could possibly want. You don’t have long to wait, as Alex Benedict arrives minutes later.

    He gives you a charming smile. “I’m running out of room for all my collections and I’m tired of people trying to break into my house to have a look,” he begins, getting right to the point as soon as introductions are exchanged.

    ‘I understand. How can we help?”You sense this will be more than a simple addition to an existing home and are excited by the prospect.

    Alex leans forward in his chair. “I recently inherited a plot of land which would be perfect for a small museum. I’ve heard many good things about you, in particular from Mayor Rose Curtis and the Newcrest Town Council, so I’m confident you’ll be able to meet my needs.”

    “It will be a pleasure working with you,” you reply. “What did you have in mind?”

    “I’ve always had an interest in history, including architecture, so nothing too modern on the outside. It must have a food court.”

    “We can certainly do that. What about budget?”

    “I recently sold off a few specimens. Will $200,000 be enough?”

    “It should be. We’re used to challenges around here.”

    “Great I’m off to track a missing ship, but I should be back in two weeks.”

    “Your museum will be ready by then. Good luck.”

    “Thanks.” With a hearty handshake, Alex takes his leave.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    The Benedict Museum houses Alexander Benedict’s 15 full collections and his 7 partially completed ones. It has five separate Galleries, a mini food court, gift shop and gardens. This museum isn’t only about the collections though – Mr Benedict is such a famous and intrepid explorer that he’s an attraction in his own right, so throughout the museum there are photographs of Alex on his adventures around the world. (Thought I’d put my photography practice to good use!)
    Most of the smaller museums in the towns around my area of northern England are housed in beautiful Grade II listed Victorian buildings and many have lovely gardens attached, so my architecture choice was an easy one. Despite the traditional exteriors these museums do a great job of making the Galleries modern & interesting, so I tried to do that too. My home town museum has an fairly dire aquarium/vivarium in the basement which I think has been the same since around 1940 and, despite how awful it was, I used to love it when I was small and then my kids spent hours (and hours and painful hours) in there too….so that got included too - although mine is much cleaner and prettier
    My biggest learning curve in this challenge came from using coloured lighting for the first time to create atmosphere in the different galleries - and then playing around for hours to get the exhibits to show clearly in the screenshots for the slide show without killing the lighting effect I'd got in game. It's amazing how much difference which light you can use makes. I think I'm having as much fun with learning to take half decent screenshots as am with the actual building! Another great challenge, thank you
    In case it doesn’t translate continents well…. a Grade 2 listed building is defined as a UK building or structure that is "of special interest, warranting every effort to preserve it". A listed building may not be demolished, extended, or altered without special permission from the local planning authority.

    #BnS127 - The Smell of Tea and Nutbread

    The deadline for this challenge is 18th September 2019

    The smell of roses permeates the entire office as you bask in the sunlight from the window behind your desk. Mentally you are constructing a small apartment building for your latest client. Karl's voice comes through on the intercom, spoiling the quiet of the moment. "Your 4:30 is here."

    You hit the button on the intercom. "Send them in."

    Your office door opens, and Karl ushers in a young, dark-haired couple. After you greet them and everyone is seated, the man speaks with a deep voice. "I am Jerome Washington, and this is my wife, Shirley. We appreciate you seeing us on short notice like this. We inherited a small piece of land in the middle of the city and a small amount of money a few months ago. We were thinking it was a strange place to put a house, and we were thinking of what we could do there when I lost my job at the factory with all those layoffs last week. The money we got is not going to last long."

    Shirley takes up the story. "Then my cousin Lashay suggested we try selling my baked goods, like nut breads and cookies, since they are always hits at family gatherings. After a little thought, we decided that selling my baking with our favorite tea blends would be really cool. So we want to build a tea shop on the land."

    "Awesome! That sounds like a great idea! We don't have a tea shop in town yet," you say encouragingly.

    "But now, our little plot of land needs to do double duty. Our apartment building is being demolished soon, so now we need a new home, too," Mr. Washington explains.

    "We have a two year old," Mrs. Washington adds. "And just yesterday we found out we are having twins in about six months. Would it be possible to do a building with the tea shop on the bottom and a house on top, like they used to do it in the old days?"

    "We can certainly do that," you agree. "Living above a storefront is coming back into fashion, especially among the younger generation."

    "The shop is easy," Mr. Washington continues. "A back area with baking and tea brewing equipment. The customer section needs a counter and display area, about five small tables that seat 2 to 4 people each, and public restrooms. The home part needs to have a set of stairs into the back of the shop and another one on the outside of the building, for personal visitors. We need a minimum of three bedrooms , two and a half baths, and a large family space."

    Mrs. Washington adds, "Since we will soon have three little ones, I need a big kitchen so I can do the baking upstairs, too, while I watch the kids. The budget is only $85,000" though, she says with a worried tone.

    You take a deep breath, knowing you've done more on less money in the past. "Okay. I know you need a place to live very soon, so how does two weeks sound?" you offer.

    The young couple smile at each other and say in unison, "Done!"


    THE BRIEF

    Due 18th September
    Budget is $85,000 (since lot was inherited you DO NOT need to include lot cost this time)
    30x40 or smaller lot
    Parking for at least 3 cars and landscaping
    The build should include:
    Tea Shop: restrooms, 5 tables that seat 2 to 4 each, counter space with a cash register, a display area, large baking area in the back with stairs to the living area above, and an outside staircase to the living area.
    Living Area: a minimum of three bedrooms and 2.5 baths, a large family space, and a baking kitchen for testing new recipes as well as cooking for the family

    Room Challenge

    Create the kid's bathroom. Your budget is $10,000.

    Sims Challenge

    Create the Washington family and show them in the shop and in their home. Be sure to include likes, skills, and clothing choices for each sim in your media slideshow. Family must include Jerome, Shirley, and their 2-year-old child. You can either include infant twins or Shirley as an expectant mother.

    'Tea For 2 & Two for Me' is a silly play on the song, as there are 2 tops for seating and the couple is expecting Twins.
    This was my second build for this entry. Tough build, for the budget, but a great challenge. I ended up building a modern style building but tried to keep some of the same elements of the building materials used in the neighborhood. The 1st floor is the Tea Shop with Tea based items for sale, as well as Baker's Display's for the tasty Treats the wife will be making. I also included a Gift Shop type of Area with Hand Crafted Cards, Clay Pottery Tea items, as well as Loose 'Leaf' Tea Bins and bagged selections. There is also a Kitchen with Tea Brewing Machines and counter space for making Baked good, as well as the Appliances to be able to do so and a clean up station, for all of those dirty dishes.
    The 2nd and 3rd floor are the Living Loft with the 2nd floor having entry from the Store and also from the side, exterior stairs from the back side of the building. The 2nd floor houses the Kitchen and dining areas, as well as the Children's Rooms and the Half Bath. The 3rd Floor holds the Family Room, Master bed and Bath, a small Office and a spare room to be be used as the couple see's fit.

    It's the first build ever trying to stay within a budget, and it's soooo hard! So sorry for the lack of deco then.
    It's a two floor modern building that tries to incorporate the surrounding nature.
    The ground floor is where the tea house / coffee shop is located. You can find a standard table, or curl up on one of our sofa tables and read a book and enjoy your tea, while smelling the latest batch of freshly backed cupcakes, coming from the baking area.
    On sunny days (not many in Brindleton Bay), you can enjoy the pond view or warm yourself by the bonfire at the outside terrace.
    Top floor is the main (and private) living area. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 service toilet, a kitchen and a living room, topped by a wonderfull glass sky light.

    ENTRY DETAILS: What a fortuitous turn of events for Jerome and Shirley Washington to end up with a small piece of land in Newcrest. As you're probably aware, Newcrest has been going through a bit of a renaissance lately...some call it gentrification...but we're not here to quibble. The point is, what was old is suddenly new again and with the renewed interest in the Bridgeview neighborhood especially, looks like its the perfect spot to start a small business. With Jerome's knowledge of tea and Shirley's baking skills, seemed only logical to open a tea room. Jerome and Shirley also found they had quite the attachment to the three-story apartment building that stood on their land and made the decision to to keep it intact and renovate to suit their own needs. And while they could have used a bit more room, with the family growing the way it is, they're a resourceful couple and they know they can make this work...$85,000 is a tight budget after all. Jerome and Shirley are way too frugal and cautious to go biting off more than they can chew. Let's all wish the Washington family the best of luck and a safe delivery of the twins, and then let's pick a date to all meet up for a spot of tea and nutbread one day soon.

    ENTRY DETAILS: They love food and family, so living above their tea shop is a dream come true. I wanted them to be a fun and happy young couple with the energy to start their business while raising a family. I realized after I finished working on them that Shirley kind of looks like the young, short haired Kelly Rowland in her Destiny's Child era. I'm here for it.
    Jerome - Super parent aspiration. Foodie, Outgoing, Family Oriented
    Shirley - Master Chef aspiration. Foodie, Cheerful, Creative
    Sandra - An independent toddler.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Sure, I'm not usually a CAS person.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Brew’n’Bake is a brand new Tea Shop on the edge of San Myshuno dockland. Built around the shell of an old derelict factory building, large scale renovation and a little extension work have taken place to create a trendy venue to shop and/or socialise on the ground floor and a three bedroom apartment above.
    This was another collaboration piece with my daughter, and had plenty of firsts - I’ve never built in San Myshuno before, never tried an industrial build and (as my mod file got turned off with the update) we thought we’d try a no CC build…….I really do miss the choice of items from my lovely CC but it was probably a good call as I struggled enough with the budget as it was! Yet another great challenge & learning curve, thank you
    (No cc also turned out to be an expensive rl choice, as bedroom decorating was apparently ‘impossible!’ without Toddler Stuff pack…..I’m such a soft touch haha, but it’s really great fun to share this with her so I don’t care!)

    ENTRY DETAILS: After inheriting a small piece of land in the middle of town, Mr. Washington has lost his job. To add insult to injury, the apartment complex the family lives in is set to be demolished, so they desperately need a new home fast. The couple has decided, based on family members' encouragement, that opening a bakery/tea shop would be the best way to go, with an apartment above to live in.
    The ground floor bakery and tea shop includes a large area for baking in the back and a large storefront with seating both inside and out. The employee area is enclosed by a fence. A small-ish backyard is devoted to toddler games and cozy conversation.
    Upstairs the family has a 3 bedroom/2.5 bath apartment home to enjoy.

    Shirley and Jerome just inherited a plot of land and wasn't sure what to do with it. With a love of home baking and wanting to spend more time with her children, Shirley suggested a tea house! This lovely little tea house has been thought out with the children in mind, with a large, 3 bedroom home above the tea shop. There's a massive kitchen for testing out those recipes and creating new ones, a large open plan family area including; sitting area, dining area and a work area, with a portable laptop for being able to work wherever the children are. There's 3 spacious bedrooms, with a large family bathroom and also, an en-suite for when the parents need some time for themselves! The tea room itself is a homey, comforting and welcoming area, offering bright cheerful pops of colour. The tea room has plenty of seating, inside and out, and is the only tea room in the city to welcome those furry friends! A display case has also been placed expertly at the window to showcase the fabulous home-baking available and to entice those customers in.

    GALLERY COST: $84,999
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: https://imgur.com/a/rRDXQtm?
    ENTRY DETAILS: This bakery tea & coffee shop features a Realm Of Magic theme with a family home upstairs! Uses only two packs intentionally - ROM & Go To Work. Special features include two toddler or child rooms, two cook’s kitchens, a Cupcake Machine, a work area for creating teas, free coffee and fast internet, a small cook's greenhouse/porch, fireplace, working/interactive sandbox, a store play room for the tots and their friends while mom's baking & more!
    A note of explanation for a few of my build details:
    Spoiler
    Note: One of my bedrooms was originally a nursery with bassinets. Once my family's twin infants were born mom was forced to give birth in the hospital (I tried twice, this is how it works)... and the babies teleported to their other small home. (They must own property to own a retail store so my family has a 2nd home they technically live in.) The toddler and adults (unemployed) stay on this lot and run the bakery.
    So... The parents went to the other lot/home and aged the babies to toddlers so they could come to this lot (babies cannot be brought to the lot but as toddlers they can. So now I have the toddler twin boys in that room and converted the nursery into a toddler room since those who download the bakery from the gallery will not be able to use it as a nursery anyway since babies cannot be born here or brought here.
    That cut into my theme idea and some of the details, and since I was out of time to fight with it further I still only have one of the evil high chairs, I don't use them hardly anyway. Everyone is happier if the toddler 'grabs a plate' and goes to sit on one of the living room children's chairs that are there for them. Works very well.
    It features the ‘Homey’, ‘Chef's Kitchen’, and ‘Gnomes’ lot traits.

    ENTRY DETAILS: The trouble with this brief is that I know this house. There's dozens of home above/business below buildings near where I live and almost every single one is a renovation of a Victorian cottage. This is three storeys, but if you picture a long street lined with dozens of shorter versions of these you've just imagined three different Wellington suburbs on opposite sides of the cbd.
    So here we go - the Wellington Washington's. They've also built a Victorian style cottage (to fit in with the neighbours) and are settling in to compete with our over-priced coffeeshops. I built in two tea brewers to instead of an espresso bar, which I figured suited the tea shop concept more?
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Always. Especially on exteriors and bathrooms. I feel like I struggle with those.
    CREDIT FOR CC/RECOLORS:
    First of all - the wooden floors! Are mine! I did those! I'm delighted tbh bc I love the Old Hickory floor that came with pets but I didn't love all the colours. And my recolours look kinda okay!
    But because of this, they're not up anywhere or anything. I just made them for me. They cost the same as the original Old Hickory floor, but they probably won't show up if you download the lot.
    Other credits:
    Wendy35Pearly for the Floral Fancy Carpet recolour
    Annachibi for the separated Mod Pod Bedframe
    Allisas for the Rustic Dream Toddler Bedframe
    PearlStitches for the Watercolour Bedding
    Budgie for the default plate replacements (not deliberately used, so much as I'm playing a History Challenge atm and totally forgot to remove them)
    The Plumbob Tea Society for ... basically everything else. I've done my best to keep a running list, but if I've forgotten anything it almost certainly came from either their cottage garden or teeny tots stuff packs.
    I know I've included: decorative mason jars; hanging baskets; hanging mugs; kindermade classics high chair; tea tin herbs; potted herbs; jug 'a lavender; mailbox; floral embroidery; framed marine prints; and teeny tot mattress.
    (Might need Move Objects on to place - there's one stubborn column that keeps arguing with a flowerpot just outside the upstairs entry).

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Shirley Washington: Her traits are family oriented, foodie and cheerful. Shirley sees the best in everyone, and is always in a good mood. Her love for baking comes from her grandmother who also was a baker. She doesn't only love baking though, she also enjoys cooking family dinners. She also loves eating the food she makes, which is why she is a total foodie. She loves her family, and can't wait to expand it. Her biggest dream (aspiration) is to have a big happy family! Since she is pregnant, the clothes she wears have to be comfy for her to even bother walking out the house, but she still loves looking feminine and polished.
    Jerome Washington: His traits are ambitious, creative and outgoing. Jerome went from one job to another, he has great ambitions which influences his decisions. He's a hard worker, and want to create a family business that can be his family's legacy. He constantly finds new solutions when something doesn't work, like his decision to open a café when he lost his job at the factory. He's also outgoing, and has no problem with talking to just about anyone. This will come in handy starting the family business. His life goal (aspiration) is to be a super parent, he loves his family and want to be the best possible father for his kids. Jerome doesn't really care what he wears, it's mostly Shirley buying his clothes, and he really appreciates that.
    Lilah Washington: Her trait is silly. She is still so little, but she loves having a laugh and making her parents laugh. She smiles a lot. Her favorite color is pink, and Shirley loves to dress her up in cute, girly clothes.

    DETAILS: This is my second attempt for this challenge. I originally started out doing a late medieval build in Windenburg, but that one just didn't have enough space for all the rooms we are supposed to include... So this modern build in San Mioshino (pretty sure I spelled that wrong) was my second attemped. I actually love how it turned ot, even if it was a bit difficult to fit all of the apartment in just one floor the same size as the cafe. I hope it is ok that I made an inside hallwaz for the apartment staircase - tried to put it on the outside of the build and regardless of where I put it it just looked somehow wrong.
    Note: I changed the stove in the kitchen (it is still blue in the pictures, instead of the white one I actually used)

    ENTRY DETAILS: The Mystical Tea Shop is a quaint early 20th century cottage style build with magical stream and garden. Built on Grimmer Brook Watch lot, the underground spring supplies the brook with crystal clear water. Surounded by breathtaking woodsy neighborhood of Grimmer Brook, Mystical Tea Shop fits perfectly and is an awesome place for locals to get together and socialize. I have splurged most of the budget on the building, landscaping and ground floor tea shop. I have provided the Washington family with all the essencial requirement in their home. The reason for this is, that as the Mystical Tea Shop thrives, they will be able to fill their home with more personalized furnishing and accessories.

    #BnS128 - Whimsyville

    The deadline for this challenge is 9th October 2019

    Who's up for a NEIGHBORHOOD CHALLENGE ?!? If you were part of BuildnShare before Sims 4, you might remember some of our previous neighborhood challenges like Gnomelandia, Summer of Love, Sanshi-Sumei, and Olde Fairy Tale Village. We are reviving the spirit of the neighborhood challenge with a new concept for Sims 4 - Whimsyville!

    Like the challenge name implies, we are looking for buildings a bit out of the ordinary - let’s get our creativity flowing! For example, a clock shop might be shaped like a clock or a bakery could be designed in the image of a layer cake. Or just feel free to incorporate humor, angles, curves, asymmetrical lines, etc. into a build. Use your imagination!! We want to create a city that screams fun.

    This is a neighborhood project, and we are starting with the community lots. Please read through the entire list of possible buildings before picking one to build. Then post which category/building you would like to build. First post gets the building - please look at the list of claimed buildings in the front page post AND the current posts in the thread requesting a build before posting a claim. Once the sign-up period has ended, and you have completed your build; you can always pick a second one to do and claim it. This first phase is just for community lots - there will be a second phase where we create families and residential homes for Whimsyville.

    Due to the community nature of this challenge, there will be no judging or podium awards given. We will, however, give Maxis Fave recommendations for the most creative entries.


    THE BRIEF


    We are going to use Newcrest for all of our community lots - specify which Newcrest lot you built on in your entry form
    Since every lot has very different needs, the budget is unlimited
    Each community lot needs some parking space and landscaping
    Use any size lot that makes sense for your build
    Feel free to propose your own community building type if one of the listed ones doesn’t strike your fancy
    9/18 - 9/24 = sign-ups/proposals
    9/25 - 10/9 = build phase

    ENTRY DETAILS:We all know the story. Hansel & Gretel killed the witch. But, what happened after? Well, they did what any resourceful young children would do, they cleaned up the cottage, hung some pretty curtain, hung some lanterns in the trees and opened a bakery! They even built a picnic area and playground in the back, for other lost children to hang out and play! This week's specials are Not-So-Lady Fingers, Gingerbread Hag Cookies and Raisin Sweet-Tooth Cookies! (the latter 2 being references in history, to the witch)
    The Bakery is decorated with 254,382,473 Chocolate Chip Cookies...well, maybe not that many, but it sure felt like it. I got halfway through before it dawned on me that within 24 hours, they all may be emitting green smoke. I got lucky. =) They don't, so I carried on. I did attempt some candy cane art for decor on the fence and gumdrops for the facia on the roof, but it looked silly, so I went with the red dog treats on the facia and alternating Fudge and Lemon Bars for window awnings, and pretty colored candy-like lights all around the fence, building and interior, with Candy Cane inspired sidewalks fencing and wall coverings.....and 254,382,473 cookies on the roof......so many cookies.......
    There is also a fenced in area, in the back of the cottage, that can be used for gardening, of course, overseen by Patchy, who, if you're good to, will be even more entertainment and enjoyment, for the children and those young at heart.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Originally, this build was inspired by the giant toybox prop from Get Famous. When I couldn't find a way to get the roof (lid) to look right, I switched to the closed lid version. Though the gallery shows it has 2 levels, it actually only has one, the upper level existing to give the illusion of a deep toybox with handles on the sides. The toys available are varied, though in most cases only one version of each is actually offered. I imagine merchandise would be swapped out as items are sold.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    I think I might have driven straight through Whimsyville and on to Absurdia with this but it’s been such good fun!! So many items that’s I’ve never found a use for before (who knew that Flower Power lights spin around??!) and probably never will again haha, and lots of playing with resize and moveobjects.
    So welcome to the whimsical world of Another Sim's Treasure, an eclectic thrift store collective where there's a preloved bargain for everysim...... made up of four different stores that each sell different kinds of items, with a small bedsit apartment above for when the owner needs a well deserved break. Like any proper treasure trove, sometimes sims will have to wait until one item has been moved/sold before they can get to the one they’ve spied. Sadly I couldn’t make the photos show the spinning flowers or the bubbles coming out of the water but it’s a fun store to play in game

    The Newcrest Drive-in Theater was established decades ago and has somehow maintaned its popularity into the modern age. It remains small and intimate to give the impression that getting in is special. Families come to treat their kids to amovie and get them out of the house in the summer. Teens like to hang out here with thier dates, though many are more interested in making out than actually watching the movies.

    ENTRY DETAILS: My entry for the #BnS128 challenge. We had to choose a lot to build in the whimsical Community. This is my #Church. With a slight #whimsical feel but a lot of #tradition as well to the church style... I made the lot a park so its easier to visit in the community. This is a small community church traditional stone exterior with lots of stained glass #organ and baptismal font #wedding arch and choir seating area. and an alter for that pastoral message for every Sunday. Oh and a cemetery to visit lost loved ones. I love doing churches as it reflects my inner soul.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    After having fun with my Thrift Store silliness I deliberately went a completely different route with this build. I wanted to build a grand community theatre that fit with whimsy and I think I managed that with the building, although I have to admit a whimsical interior totally defeated me so I just had fun trying to make a great venue for my Sims. I was aiming for Owl (eyes, ear tufts and beak) but maybe not too successfully as my assistant designer sees Mouse (she got paws and whiskers somehow) - maybe if you squint and turn your head you can find a different creature in there.....I’ll take anything as a success haha.
    I’ve been playing with my new graphics software to create the floorplans and I’ve spent a couple of days playing with getting sims into my slideshow…..more learning curves for me from this great challenge so thank you again
    So, welcome to the Owliseum Theatre - a brand new centre for the performing arts. As well as the main Owliseum Auditorium you can be entertained in the Owlet Bar, the VIP Lounge, the Little Owl's Theatre or head up to the Roof Top Bar & Terrace before enjoying a show in the Open Air Theatre.

    #BnS129 - Solving the Seniors Situation Part II

    The deadline for this challenge is 27th October 2019

    Everyone has gone home for the evening, and you are about to close up when two people rush up to the door and knock. You recognize the young woman who you talked to in the park, but the man you cannot place. You open the door wide, saying, “You just caught me! Come in, please”
    “We won’t take up much of your time then, “ says the lady as they sqeeze in. “My name is Avery Schwing, and I teach the children who were collecting for the senior sims. This is the journalist who agreed to help our cause, Mack Riccardi. He did a segment on our cause last night on the local news, and we have had an overwhelming response! People are even calling from other areas and donating!”
    “I sent the story to a few friends in other cities and countries,” Mack says modestly. “It seems to have gone viral.” He smiles.
    “We came to hand over the first check for materials and labor,” Miss Schwing explains, handing you a very generous check. “I expect we will have even more in a few days.”
    “Wow!” you exclaim at the size of the check. “This is far more than I even thought possible!”
    “The news station is also getting calls of people wanting to help with the building, including skilled laborers offering plumbing, electrical, and heating and cooling installations,” Mack adds. “What should I tell them?”
    “Send them out to the construction sites, and we will find work for everyone,” you assure them, feeling the tears coming into your eyes. “We have many more houses to build!”


    THE BRIEF

    *choose ONE of the three senior sims couples to build a house for, making to sure include all their needs/wants in the build.
    *to prevent future flooding, the houses need to be built on stilts or foundations at least 8 steps high. No basements, please.
    *since the houses were near the river, try to have a water view (ocean or river ) or add a strip of water down one side of the property.
    *The budget is $125,000

    *Gunter and Norberaht Ausman—they need a master bedroom and ensuite, a guest bedroom, a guest bathroom, a study, a large kitchen, and a separate living space. They like to chart the stars at night. They prefer modern styles.
    *Candy Noren and Sofia Banks—they need two master bedrooms with ensuites, a half bath, a small library, and a kitchen/living room combination. They both like to garden. Candy prefers classical design while Sofia hates any shade of brown.
    *Mikael and Birgitta Olsson—they need a master bedroom with ensuite, a separate bathroom for guests, a craft room, a man cave, and a combination kitchen/living room. Mikael likes fishing and sports while Birgitta loves floral designs.


    Room Challenge

    *create a master bedroom room combination for ANY of the three senior sims couples listed.


    Sims Challenge

    *create the senior sims couple you chose to build for (or any of the three if you are not doing the build challenge). Show them enjoying their new home. Include their likes and skills where applicable. Also show pictures of their clothes.

He has stocked the backyard pond with some rare fish he's caught out and about.

In addition, the house has a lovely small greenhouse attached to the house for Birgitta to enjoy her personal time doing the floral designs and Mikael’s man cave on the ground floor has everything that he enjoys to keep him busy when he is not going out fishing either for a deep water fishing or just a simple casting near the beach. It has an open kitchen, dining and living area where they could easily entertain their guests while cooking and eating. At the backyard deck, the couple could enjoy the beautiful sunset overlooking Cavalier Cove and the ocean. The interior suits the taste of both couples and the landscaping has been kept minimal since it’s often that the area have high tide. There was also a small storage area in their backyard.

Either way, ghosts in the machine and all, after moving it to different lots and seeing how it went, I finally got it to settle down. I hope.
    Classical styled Home: 4 Bed/3.5Bath Front Covered Porch with an offset Gazebo built in and a Rear Deck. There is a Master Suite on the 1st floor and one on the Second Floor. The Fist floor also contains a Living Room, Formal Dining, Library, Storage Room, Laundry, Half Bath and an Open Family Room/Breakfast Nook and Kitchen.
    On the second Floor, along with the 2nd Master Suite, are 2 extra bedrooms and a full Bath.
    Flower Gardens in the front and rear.
    I forgot to add the #BnS129 tag to my entry and did not think of it until it already had a bunch of downloads. I'm sure the migrane didn't help in that. I hope you can still find it, with the links and info provided.

The goal is to have a residential home and potential family for every lot in the main Sims 4 neighborhoods (Willow Creek, Oasis Springs, Windenburg, Newcrest, and (possibly) Brindelton Bay).

    This one is built for a multi-generational family. The matriarch is a diva-tasctic grandma. Her adult son, who lost his wife a few years ago is subdued. His daughter and her adopted sister are growing from childhood to their teen years. Finally, a toddler son is a little confused by everything. Come and enjoy a groovy episode with outrageous conflict but always ending in hugs by the end of the story.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Coop 'N Run: What I was looking to do was to create a home for the family of Chicken Little. (They will be uploaded as 'The Clucks' ) I created the 'Coop', which is Barn Styled, closed, personal dwelling area, of the Bedrooms, Baths and upstairs, the Theater. The rest of the home, with all of the glass, is the 'Run', containing communal areas, such as the Entertaining/Sitting Room, Kitchen, Dining and the Gym, Game Room and Den below, creating a Coop and Run. Hence the name.
    There is a front patio for entertaining or lounging, as well, with a Grill and plenty of seating, and along the side of the home, more seating with a fire pit.
    The home takes up the entire parcel, so there isn't any real landscaping to be done, and even if there was, they're chickens, and they have scratched it all up by now anyway.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I wanted to keep the floral connotations of "Rindle Rose" so I knew going in that I wanted a huge conservatory, and lots of soft pastels. I kinda got the base layout mostly done, and started thinking that a) there was just a little bit more space I could squeeze out of my shell and b) one little old lady wasn't really a 'family' as such. Thus, the teenaged relative come to visit on an "indefinite basis" as in so many novels I read growing up. Her room is a bit pokey because it used to be a sewing room, or a teeny guest bed, or something.
    I'm not 100% sure I nailed the whimsy, but I tried to catch that sense of charm and freedom you associate with certain types of old women - that idealised grandmother type who keeps certain things old fashioned because she's just grown to like them that way, but will also sneak into the annual flower show and steal cuttings off all the hydrangeas because it's absolutely shameful what the garden centre charges for something that should be growing free.
    Hoping I nailed that at least.

    ENTRY DETAILS: When his wife told him she'd dreamed of living in the treetops since she was a little girl, John asked her to sketch up a design for how her dream home would look. She scribbled out some sketches- lovingly depicting the arch of the windows, the lattices of the windowpanes, a turret on the roof. John then put his wood-working skills to work and turned his wife's dreams into a reality. The result was a whimsical treehouse, nestled in the forest, perched high in a gnarled oak, overlooking a vast expanse of ocean. With its mismatched w
    indows, pretty flowerbeds, and mid-nowhere location, this became the perfect little home in which to live out their very own happily-ever-after.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    The build was inspired by a piece of work from Italian illustrator and architect Fredrico Babina's ARCHITALE series, “a tribute to the fairytale universe where the architectures are reinvented to accommodate the protagonists of the story.” See this link for more info. I did try to do a similar modern version but it was soundly dismissed by Assistant Designer (and she was right, my modern building skills are dire :D). So we've done a whimsical twist on a traditional tale....
    After Snow White got married & moved out and their story got made into a blockbuster movie, the seven dwarves gave up mining and decided they needed a bit of distance from one another.....but not too much! So they relocated their old house upwards and each of them built a tiny home around it. Now they can have their own space but still be close to their brothers

    ENTRY DETAILS: Some early founding member of the Von-Windenburg family apparently took the phrase "a man's home is his castle" a little too literally. The residence is literally a castle from the outside, though it lacks an actual portcullis and has no moat. The inside is modern and updated, featuring plenty of art and old family heirlooms along with the shiny and new. Each bedroom is decorated according to the owner's tastes.

    ENTRY DETAILS: The Three Little Pigs
    As are their homes, The Three Little Pigs are very different, from each other. I took liberty with the story, in it's original form (outside of the names, as they were blocked by the filter)
    Brownie Pig is a lazy slob. His Aspiration is Chief of Mischief with Traits being Childish, Lazy and Slob. He lives in the house built of straw, being the path of least resistence for building, for the least weight and fastest and easiest to build.
    Pinky Pig (origionally plum) is neat, but he is a very materialistic and greedy pig. For his Aspiration, I chose Rennaisance Sim, because he also wants to, or at least thinks, he knows everything. His Traits are Glutton (or Covet), Materialistic and Jealous (of things that others have). Being a middling sort of pig, he built his house of sticks.
    Blocky Pig (origionally plum) seems to be the smartest (despite what Pinky thinks) and the most stable of the Three Pigs. His Aspiration is Friend of the World, because being neither lazy or slovenly, nor jealous and Covetous, he keeps himself and his home neat and gosh darn it, people like him. (see what I did there?) His TRaits are Cheerful, Outgoing and Neat.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I've only ever done one sim entry and that was because I'd taken a load of photos for my Benedict Museum build, so this is well out of my comfort zone and probably shows! I'd have liked to have taken more 'action' shots but I'm out of time; I have managed to get one of every dwarf in his own cottage but in retrospect I should have made them sooner and then used them when I did my play testing......always learning haha.

    HOUSEHOLD: Got them replaced without the two custom buffs that were showing up before. Von-Windenburg https://www.ea.com/games/the-sims/the-sims-4/pc/gallery/D4DBD816071011EA82ADBA891CD6F027
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: https://imgur.com/a/JT8Qmnp (Still working on it, sorry.)
    ENTRY DETAILS: Friedrich Von-Windenburg is the family's patriarch and a widower, though being a romantic, he still has an active social life now that he is done grieving. He's also a snob and likes to look good except when he's relaxing at home with his family, then his clothes tend toward casual comfort. He still has some old-fashioned views about what's fashionable, and interestingly enough prefers the color green to red.
    Heinrich looks quite a bit like his father and likes to be in charge, which probably serves him well in his business career. He and his wife Adalheid are still verty much in love and he loves spending time with his children when he can, though his father belives that's the nanny's job. He doesn't understand how his heir, Richard, could have turned out to be lazy and irresponsible.
    Adalheid wasn't born into money, but she enjoys all the benefits it provides - namely the ability to throw lavish parties on a whim and donate to all her favoirte charities. She likes to wear nice clothes and enjoys an excuse to dress up.
    Richard is going through a bit of a goth phase, preferring to wear mostly black. He loves nothing more than to spend the day listening to or playing music, preferrably somethinng of his own creation.
    Sara is, as her name implies, a little princess, a girly girl who loves pink and would rather draw or tell stories about her dolls than play sports or roll around int he dirt. This doesn't mean she's queamish though, she can't afford to be with an older brother who loves to tease her.
    Stefan is the spoiled baby of the family who is always into everything in his quest to learn all he can about the world around him. His favorite toys are dinosaurs and trains. He deosn't really have a preference in clothes yet, happily wearing whatever cute outfit his parents choose for him.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I built a new tree house for Peter Pan and the lost boys of Neverland. You can find it by the Second star to the right and straight on 'til morning. It comes complete with Captain Hook's flying ship. This tree house It has many different huts, all at different levels, and with many pathways attached to each. The perfect tree house for a good game of tag! There are so many things to discover, and many ways to get there around this tree house. There is even a possibility that the waters are mermaid infested. The perfect home for someone who never wants to grow up!
    This build challenged me with all the different levels, connecting the stairs, making the roofs work, not having branches in random places, and making sure it was all usable... but it was soo much fun to build!!

I tried to keep the look and feel of the house as close to the original as possible within the restrictions of Sims 4 building and gameplay. The lot is bright, colorful, cheery, cluttered and ideal for a fun, creative and eccentric Sim family.

    #BnS131 - Fostering the Future

    The deadline for this challenge is 27th November 2019

    Munching on brownies the "Box" family gave you as a thank you, you think back on the last few hectic months of building. You actually have a few hours of quiet today. Not that you aren't keeping busy, as you have just rearranged the furniture in your office so that more natural light hits your desk. You swallow the last bite of brownie just as Karl knocks on the door. Feeling a bit like the cat that swallowed the canary, you open the office door yourself. Karl steps in and closes the door behind him.

    "Uhm...," Karl whispers, looking shaken. "I think there is a cult in the lobby wanting to see you."

    You laugh out loud. "Well, it would be something different!" You motion for him to show them in.

    Karl ushers in four people in unusual clothing. The two men are wearing plain, homespun overalls. The two women are wearing long, plain dresses. Somehow the outfits remind you of the Amish and Mennonite cultures, but you can see why Karl thought they were part of a cult.
    "Welcome! Won't you please have a seat," you greet the foursome with a smile.

    They sit down, and one of them introduces the group. "Thank you. This is Rayne Collins," the man says, pointing to a raven-haired, younger woman. "Mr. and Mrs. Ankit Patel. And I am Anders Hans. We are all foster parents, and Mrs. Patel and I are also social workers. We have been lucky enough to get the go-ahead for a new youth camp. We would love for you to design it for us."

    "I would be delighted to design it," you say without hesitation, immediately starting to take notes. "How many children will be involved? And is it a day camp or an overnight camp?"

    "We are hoping to have up to 30 youths a day, with about 15 to 20 of them staying at night," Mrs. Patel tells you in a brisk manner. "The camp is really going to be a working farm that will help the teens connect with the earth and plants and learn some real life skills."

    "But..." Mr. Patel hesitates. "well, some of the teens will be troubled youths from the detention system. And some of the foster kids will be known run-aways as well. Unfortunately, we will need high fences around the farm. If you can camouflage the fences in any way, we would be grateful. It would be awful for the kids to be discouraged by the fences as soon as they saw the place. But it is a necessary precaution."

    You nod at him. "I understand. So, concealed fences, large garden plot... Will there be animals?"

    "Heavens, no!" exclaims Miss Collins. "Keeping up with the teens will be bad enough!" She laughs easily. "We will need two different houses or wings for sleeping and bathing, each with enough room for 10 boys or girls. Two beds maximum per room, to keep conflicts down and give some privacy to the kids. Each wing or house also needs a bedroom and en suite for an adult or adult couple. The main building will house a cafeteria and four classrooms."

    Mr. Hans adds, "Could you add a rec room as well? The kids will need a way to unwind. And tons of storage for games, sports equipment, etc." He pauses and thinks. "A small office. Oh, and a shed for the gardening tools. I think that is it..." He looks around expectantly, and the others nod.

    "Okay," you murmur, looking over your notes. "That is all do-able. I can get all that done in two week/four weeks. What is the budget?"

    "We have $150,000. Will that be enough?" Mr. Hans asks nervously.

    "I can make that work," you assure them, mentally noting to donate the cost of the lot.

    They all express their thanks on the way out. You immediately call Karl in to start looking for a suitably large lot for your new project.


    THE BRIEF


    The budget is $150,000. Do not include the cost of the lot in the budget this round.
    Use a 30x40 or larger lot.
    Must include a garden area and a shed.
    Either 2 wings of a large building OR 2 different buildings for the sleeping quarters, each with a master bedroom and en suite plus five other bedrooms with two beds each and either public bathrooms or enough bathrooms for the 10 kids per building
    The main building must include: a cafeteria, a small office, public restrooms, a rec room with lots of storage, and 4 classrooms.
    Enclose the lot in a tall fence. Camouflage the fence as best you can.


    Room Challenge

    Create the cafeteria with seating for at least 20 people. The budget is $25,000.


    Sims Challenge

    Create one or two of the adults and three of the teens for the farm, showing them working in the garden and enjoying the other parts of the farm. Include their likes, skills, and pictures of their clothing choices.


    Please use the whole of hashtag #BnS131 when you upload your creations. Any build, room or household without this hashtag will not be considered for Maxis Fave nomination.

    Architect's notes: This was built on a modular design, all student bedrooms are the same size. Student bathrooms alternate corners with faculty bedrooms, so the restroom should never be too far away. Restrooms are currently all gender. The layout is designed to encourage students to go out to the central courtyard, but they can also get to any point in the building and stay inside.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Wow this budget was tough! And so many rooms! Think I spent nearly as much time choosing which items I/they could do without as I did building haha (actual plants or leave them some weeding to do? Do they really need two stoves? Vending machines or not? And beautiful NoCC artwork very quickly got swapped out for beautiful NoCC photographs ). I visited this kind of residential centre with school and church many times as a child/teen and they were always kind of bare and basic, now I know why…… I started out by trying to get that same austere but fun feeling those childhood residentials had anyway, and the tight budgeting just made it that much easier!
    So welcome to Oakenstead Residential Farm, a youth camp where troubled teens can experience living a simple life, connecting with the earth and plants while learning some real life skills. Oakenstead Farm has it's own wind turbine to generate power for it's three separate buildings - the main Farmhouse plus two Dorm houses for teens on a residential stay, Cedar House and Willow House – and can teach students gardening, flower arranging, carpentry, herbalism, bonsai pruning plus essential life skills such as debate and discussion. A kitchen, a dining room, a rec room, 4 classrooms, an office, an equipment store, 18 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms with a total of 10 toilets.......oh and a shed!!

    ENTRY DETAILS: I'm with the rest of you. This was fairly tough for the budget and size, although I did have an easier time than with past challenges. My biggest enemy is my use of custom art which doesn't always register in the build and makes the price change when you log back in. In fact, I logged onto the lot just now and when I left it, after making sure everything was balanced out, I was $15 under budget. When I came back, it was more than $4k over budget. So, out of frustration, I just started deleting some things, to get back below budget. I hate that and now I'm a little shorter on decor than I wanted to be.
    Anywho,...I did a single building on a single floor. The propert has a gate and fence on one side, naturally, and the ocean behind it. I wrapped the house and rear of the property in high fencing with razor wire and then covered it all in large bushes.
    The front of the house has a large porch and upon entering, there is a full legth hallway going to each side wing and the foyer, which contains the 'Office' and Check-In area with 2 classrooms on each side of the Foyer, with 5 desks for students and a teacher's desk. Behind that is the cafeteria, with seating for up to 36. On the left of the Cafeteria is a good sized kitchen and on the right, the rec room, which has items for entertainment, crafting and other skills.
    Each wing holds 5 double bedrooms for the students, with 2 communal bathrooms and a Master Suite for the adults, as well as a seating area in the 'lobby' of the Dorms, in each wing.
    Head out back and there is a large farm for the harvest of all kinds of different fruits and vegetables for use on the farm, as well as for selling locally, at the markets, to help supplement the income of the Camp.. There is a large Gardening Shed for storage of farming implements as well as a Basketball Court and fishing pond, for the use of the Students, for recreation. You'll also find a water tower in the back, for supplying the water needed to keep the farm running.
    I'm thrilled with the new Script that allows for respositioning and rotating items, to be able to place the Weeding tools in the the wheelbarrows and other spots, as well as standing the rakes and push brooms upright and lean them on the walls and other items.

    -> sorry about that, but it won't let me upload more than 30 pictures at a time.
    DETAILS: Overall I am quite happy with this build. I wish I could have spend more on the rec room, but I kinda ran out of money also really struggled with the grass / earth painting tool - think I painted the ground three times and every time I hit upload (to the gallery) all of it disappeared again... this build might be slightly cursed.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Yes please.
