    The design of Newcrest Fitness Factory is very nice! :) The water fountains look very nice either sides of the front entry area of the venue! The stone fencing and the flowers, trees and rocks beside the water fountains look very nice. The type and placement of the windows suits the style of the venue and looks great!
    Very nice interior furnishing of the gym. The layout of the different levels looks very nice! It is great that there is a basement level. Sims would enjoy quietly doing yoga on the mats there, whilst attending a yoga class with other sims. It looks nice how the yoga mats have been placed in the room. Nice hot tub nook. Sims will enjoy relaxing in the tub,
    Nice area for sims to enjoy keeping fit using the treadmills. It is great that there is a wall of mirrors there. The way you have taken the picture of the room looks great!
    Very nice weights machine room. Sims will enjoy looking out through the windows there at the outdoors views whilst doing training. It is great there are fridges there to get food and drink from.
    The sports picture is a nice touch on the wall in the punching bag Boxing room. The red floor rug looks great for the training boxing ring!
    Sims will enjoy swimming in the indoors pool .Very nice bar area ! The bottle shelves look nice on the bar wall. Sims will enjoy sitting on the stools having a drink from the bar after training. The aquarium is a nice touch in the corner nook.
    It is a very nice fitness venue for sims to enjoy visiting! :)

    I won in the intermediate category of QC40, the judges were amazed how i turned a factory into a gym. here's the judges comment:
    @Don_Oello
    Newcrest Fitness Factory looks fantastic we love the theme and background story of a factory turned into a gym. As we arrived with Ryan, Chad and Samantha we all commented on how fantastic the entrance was with the fountains, fencing and street lamps giving a very classy and welcoming entrance to attract customers to use the gym. Ryan loved the great design, great roofing and creative shape of the building. He also loved the amazing reception area and thought it was a creative and classy professional touch for their new business. Chad loved the great modern industrial style and use of different textures with the wall coverings in the interior. He also loved the great bar area. Samantha loved the yoga room the best with its wall of mirrors and waterfall, it gave off a great vibe for doing yoga with the sound of running water in the background. All three loved this gym and thought it was perfectly decorated and looks very professional. They are sure this place will attract lots of sims and become a very lucrative business.
    Critique
    WIth budget left over it would of been great to see a bit more landscaping detail around the sides and rear
    2 x No toilet paper in toilets
    "Potted Palm" slightly sticking into fencing next to stairs
    “Hawthorne Tree” sticking into stones
    Some flowers sticking into stones
    Tips:
    When you have small blocked off walled areas like custom made columns its good to put wall coverings on the inside that match the build to look more realistic.

    Thank you for judging @lisi_ja and @Cbear13 & keep making those amazing sigs and banners. Now i have 1 int room winner sig, 1 sim winner sig and 1 int lot/house winner sig, i hope to collect more of them B)

    Grandpa Joe's Fish Cave

    Grandpa Joe really loves fishing. So much he tells his grandkids stories about all the fish he caught in front of the fireplace with his biggest catches mounted on the wall. He even writes fishing guides on his old computer. Since grandpa Joe spends most of his time here, his wife grandma Erin placed a spare coffee machine at his storage nook. Entry for #qcrooms55

    Grandpa Joe's Fish Cave looks great! @Don_Oello :) Very nice furnishing and layout of the room! The fireplace area looks very nice! The mounted fish look great on the fireplace wall! Sims will enjoy sitting resting on the armchairs or stools in front of the fire reading a book or listening to stories. The fish tanks are nice touches on the fireplace ledge.
    Very nice study desk nook corner! Sims will enjoy sitting at the desk table using the computer or reading a book from the bookcase. The fish themed board and banners are great touches on the walls!
    Nice chess table area for Sims to,have fun playing chess. The wall paneling in the room gives a nice feel and look to the room.
    It is a very nice fish themrc study room! ;)

    I loooove your fitnes center! Great idea of turning an abandoned factory into one, been working on a few projects similar to that myself, just love the industrial style conversion. You did an amazing job with the gym, congrats on your win! B)

    And Grandpa's Fishcave looks fantastic! Love the warm and inviting colours used for the room and the classy interior design you executed here, fantastic room!

    The layout of Surfer Shake up and the exterior design of the building looks very nice! :) The roofing snd the columns look great! Very nice outdoors dining patio! It looks nice how the tables have been set up there, for sims to enjoy dining outdoors in the sea air. The candles are pretty touches on the tables, The U shaped bar counter is great! Sims will enjoy sitting on the stools having a drink from the bar. The awnings are a mice touch over the kitchen serving windows. The blue colour of the exterior suits well the location. The fencing around the edges of the patio, gives a nice look to the dining and bar areas.
    Very nice interior dining area! The patterned dining tables look nice, and the gingham blue wall pattern is calming. The flowers are nice touches on the tables. The coloured circles floor rug is pretty! The boats on the wall suit the beach theme well! The food themed pictures look very nice on the wall! The wall cutlery in the kitchen and the bottles on the shelves above the kitchen windows add a great look to the cooking area!
    Sims will enjoy dining there! :)

    The name that you have chosen for your Easter kitchen room is very creative! :) The furnishing of Eggcelent Kitchen is so very nice! The yellow colour of the walls looks very sunny and nice! It looks great how the half wall separates off the breakfast nook. The different colours and types of dining chairs is a very nice touch! The Easter eggs look very nice placed on top of the half wall. The floral pictures on the wall and the flowers on the dining table are very pretty for sims to see when eating a meal there.
    The stone texture of the cooking area walls gives a nice look to the area. The flowers shelves stands look very pretty in the room! They reflect Springtime so well! The bunny and the basket of eggs looks very nice placed on the top of the stands, and the pink and gold wall decor there looks pretty. The pear wall picture, dish rack and the wall knives are great kitchen touches in the room.
    The big pink Easter bunny and the animal wall pictures with different coloured frames look very cute in the room! The green colour of the kitchen cabinets looks very nice with the yellow colour of the walls, and is Spring themed.
    Sims will enjoy reading a book from the bookcase whilst waiting for the meal to cook, and child sims will enjoy doing artwork on the activity table whilst their parents are cooking.
    The layout and furnishing of the room looks very nice! Thanktyou very much for entering this week's challenge! :)

    Easter Dinner goes so very well with your Easter Kitchen room! :) The yellow colour of the walls looks sunny and nice! Very nice furnishing of the room! The windows dining table alcove is very nice! Sims will enjoy the sunlight coming in onto them through the windows whilst eating their meals. The alternating colours of the dining chairs looks a nice touch. The colourful springtime flowers rugs under the table add a great look to the room! The flowers on the table are pretty for sims to see when dining.
    The Easter bunny looks cute in the room! The birds , cherry blossom and flowers wall pictures look very nice and pretty in the room and capture well the Easter Springtime theme. The vase of flowers looks pretty also.Sims will have fun playing chess in the room.

    It is a very nice Easter dinner room! :)

    I got 1st place in QC42 intermediate category, this is the judges feedback on my burger joint & sims. thank you for judging @lisa17ann & @Pebblycat

    :star::star::star::star::star:
    We really loved the exterior of your restaurant from the combination of your siding, columns, and spandrels they all gave that wonderful beach side feeling! We thought your Staffs “uniforms” were perfect for the laid back atmosphere. We thought your large gourmet kitchen was impressive and we loved the little touches like the ice cream makers for a perfect beach dessert. It was such a great addition to the front patio to have the outdoor heaters, the bar and even a grill for customer’s to make their own burgers it had a real beach party vibe to it! We thought it was great the floor to ceiling mirrors in the ample bathrooms to make the small space feel larger was a great design choice. You’re inside and outside dining areas felt very much laid back with the blue and white colors, mismatched tables, and chairs. We really liked the sea side feeling the inside dining area had with some of the paintings and ship wall sculptures. We also liked all the menu choices you had and thought they went well with the laid back feeling of a burger joint. It also was really nicely lit at night time.
    Critique
    While we loved the color choice of the interior dining room the wall covering you choose felt a bit more country side then sea side. We also thought a few pieces of your art work had the same feeling. We felt that area didn't match the rest of the build as well as well as the country feeling wall art and we thought the "Colored Theory" rug looked out of place. We would have liked to see you use the remaining budget to add some greenery around the outside and maybe even the inside of the build to finish off the beach look.
    Tips:
    Play around a bit more with terrain paint. Instead of covering the majority or whole of the lot with sand terrain paint you can break it up and make it fit the landscaping around the lot. Try using the round tool and not going all the way to the edges.

    Surfer Besties - Annabelle and Lucy are very beautiful and unique, we love that you captured Annabelle's love for accessories and Lucy's need for glasses. We would of liked to see glasses on Lucy for all her outfits it could be especially dangerous her working out in her Athletic wear and not being able to see. Great outfits on both ladies and we love your choices in accessories. One thing we do look for when judging is hairstyle and make up changes through out their outfits while keeping similar hair lengths. We love that some outfits reflect their laid back and relaxed style. Great entry just need a little more variety in the changes through outfits with hair and make up.

    and thank you @Cbear13 for creating the beautiful sigs and banners for the winners

    Judges Feedback:
    Grandpa Joe really loved the masculine feeling in this room. He thought the choice of wall coverings looked really nice and went well with the overall theme of his study. He was happy to see a bookcase and toy box for his grandchildren so they could spend time with him in his study when they come for a visit. He thought the use of the wilderness rug by the fireplace was a great choice. He really appreciated having the little coffee nook as well. Grandpa Joe thought your choice of decorations were really nice things like the fish sign, fish bowl, and the fishing club seal along with his mounted fish (especially the big ones!) taking pride of place on the wall above the fireplace. He thought the desk and old computer where just right for him. And, it all blended well with his old-fashioned theme.
    Critique:
    Grandpa Joe loved your room but, thought the bookcase in the corner by the desk looked a bit out of place and he thought he would of rather had a floor lamp or plant to brighten up that corner.
    thank you for judging @lisa17ann @Cbear13 :heart: and great work on the sigs
