    Did you want laundry?
    Yes please.
    soocoolsim wrote: »
    A fruit/veggie garden?
    No
    soocoolsim wrote: »
    Usually I place the nursery next to the master however the master is pretty isolated in this floor plan. Would you prefer the hi nursery on the main floor on the opposite side of the house as located in the floor plan.... or would you prefer the nursery with the other bedrooms upstairs... or relocate the master upstairs?
    I'd like for the nursery to be on the main floor opposite the master. I like the master where it is. Can you put the changing table in the nursery and some baby monitors around specifically in the bedroom for YA Female 2?
    soocoolsim wrote: »
    Also what would you like in the basement? The other two levels will contain everything you requested so this is bonus space. I will add a doggie corner with the pet bed, etc as an indoor option. Maybe a games room? Movie theatre? Any special skill items? Your call @aaron0haaron :D
    For the basement, I'd like a gym, a gaming/hangout area with arcade games, billiards, foosball, darts, maybe the ping pong table, a bar & kitchenette, a nectar storage room (tasting room & nectar machine not needed) a bathroom. I don't want a theatre, but maybe one of the big screen TVs and a console in the hangout area? This might sound like an odd request, but can you include an area for the bubble blower from LN and some shelves for the "bubbles"? These don't have to be in the basement, but I would like a chess table and a study nook somewhere. For the art studio, I'd like an easel, a sketch pad, the street art kit, and the nice camera that came with WA. In the teen boy's room, I'd like an acoustic & electric guitar and drums if you can squeeze them in.

    I'm assuming the guest room is on the second floor with the other bedrooms? Is it too late to ask if the bedrooms have ensuites and closets? I know they're on the floor plan, but I didn't specifically ask for them so I'm just checking.

    QUERIES / WIP SCREENSHOTS REGARDING CURRENT BUILD

    Mar 18/19
    Another sneak peek for you @aaron0haaron :smile:
    V0Nfg4V.jpg

    Mar 13/19
    Below is another WIP of the kitchen @aaron0haaron . These colours are closer to the new inspiration photo you provided (bottom right). Since the room layout in the photo is different from the floor plan in the request... would you like to stay with the two large islands? An option could be to delete the island nearer to the windows and spread the smaller island and dining set around a bit. Thoughts?
    [edited to remove WIP]

    Mar 8/19
    Hi @aaron0haaron , what colour cabinets would you prefer... brown similar to the floor plan photo (I can make it reddish to match the original if desired)... or green similar to your existing kitchen inspiration pic? If you prefer your green, you can also provide the colour code # if you want an exact match. Ignore the flooring, walls, etc. Once the cabinet colours are confirmed everything will be recoloured.
    [edited to remove WIP]

    Mar 6/19
    Here you go @aaron0haaron , a sneak peek at YAFemale1 based on your inspiration photo. Edit! Replaced store items with Supernatural items as per screenshot below. Kept the rug but this too can be replaced/removed. The painting is a freebie that I think you should already have :smile:
    [edited to remove WIP]

    Mar 2/19
    Hi @aaron0haaron , I managed to add closets into all the bedrooms. I tend to leave an opening so it can be functional to tuck away the laundry hamper. Below are different treatments of the opening. Do you have a preference? If you prefer a door, that's ok too... in which case I'll add the hamper in the bedroom itself.

    Also... so far I've steered away from any store items. If there is a particular set you have that you would like me to utilize, just let me know. For the male teen (punk, musical)… I was thinking the Loud, Fast Clash bedroom would be a great fit. Do you have this set?
    [edited to remove WIP]

    Feb 26/19
    @aaron0haaron , I'm not sure what to do with the vaulted living room. The inspiration photo has a couple of trusses however I think the one we have in game is overpowering the room. As such, I would prefer to leave it out. What do you think... truss or no truss?
    [edited to remove WIP]

    Feb 25/19
    Hi @aaron0haaron , below is the shell so far. The floor plan pics don't show all the roof elevations and there are a lot of odd angles so the end result is a mix of pics and me filling in the blanks. I extended the garage so it could fit the 6 cars you requested. Also added an extra room over the second floor sun room (see side view). This will house the art studio.

    Anyway, here are some WIPs below. This is laid out on a 60x60 which provides more placement options. I'll determine when doing the landscaping whether I really need to move up to a 64x64. Ignore the patterns since I'm not at the recolour stage yet. Just let me know whether the structure and roofing looks good or anything bothers you.

    Also, do you have the roof end objects shown? If not, I will use wall patterns. I've included a couple of examples where I used patterns so you have an idea. Again... ignore the colours.

    Thanks for claiming my request! :D
  • soocoolsimsoocoolsim Posts: 3,091 Member
    You're welcome emma. I'll be touching base with you once the shell is ready before I start work on the insides since it's a large build and will take some time :)
  • emma1293emma1293 Posts: 42 Member
    ok no problem! :D
  • soocoolsimsoocoolsim Posts: 3,091 Member
    Hi @emma1293 , just touching base to assure you I've been working on your build. I have the floor plans laid out based on your detailed specs... am just fussing with tweaking the front exterior. Once I'm happy with the exterior frame I'll work on the interior furnishings.

    Modern buildings run the gamut from ultra modern to more of a blended look so I'm open to sharing WIP photos with you as touch points to ensure my vision matches with yours OR if you prefer I can just work on my own and let you know once ready for download. Just let me know what you prefer :)
  • emma1293emma1293 Posts: 42 Member
    if it helps we could look at pictures of modern houses? or working on your own and show me what you have later and do tweeks ?
  • soocoolsimsoocoolsim Posts: 3,091 Member
    edited April 2017
    How to you feel about this (honestly)? I will be tweaking a lot and adding the pool, landscaping, etc. as I go along... just touching base to see if this is kinda what you were thinking.

  • emma1293emma1293 Posts: 42 Member
    uh oh wow! that looks awesome... is that on a 60x60 lot?
  • emma1293emma1293 Posts: 42 Member
    also could i say that i prefer the yellow to be like a beige/white?
  • soocoolsimsoocoolsim Posts: 3,091 Member
    Glad you like the framework emma and great to hear your input.
    Yes, on a 60x60 since it gives you more options for placement.
    Absolutely we can change the colours... I'm going in-game now to tweak and finalize the floor plans since we're on the same page :)

  • emma1293emma1293 Posts: 42 Member
    oh good good cos i tried to play on a 63x63 lot and my game crashed :( like right now for instance whilst i was playing haha, the framework is awesome!, how many bedrooms are there? are you gonna take a pic of the floor plans?
  • emma1293emma1293 Posts: 42 Member
    oooh! before i forget i now have generations!
  • soocoolsimsoocoolsim Posts: 3,091 Member
    edited August 2017
    I'll take pics of the floor plans once I finalize all the walls. You'll see I have a few objects in the rooms... this is just for me to remember what I'm using them for and sometimes to estimate how much room I'll need. Once I get into décor I'll touch base with you again.

    OK, here we go... I've changed the colour and also started to add in some of the architectural details. Let me know if you don't like the group of L-shaped pillars in front. After this check-in the rest of the exterior (including the back) will be a secret until final reveal, ok :)

    [edited to remove WIP - Photobucket issue]

    I just noticed a wall I need to recolour... no worries, all will be checked before the final..

    7 bedrooms... I'm putting in everything you asked for, even the cinema :smile:

    edit: Before I go much further I'll double-check everything I've used so far you own and replace if needed.
    BTW... you said in your form we could use anything from the store... does that mean you own all the store items?
  • emma1293emma1293 Posts: 42 Member
    that looks even awesomer! but the rounded wall (front of house) colours don't seem right? what do you think? and yea i kinda dislike the L shape walls sorry!, im really not sure if i have the store items do you know which ones they are?
  • soocoolsimsoocoolsim Posts: 3,091 Member
    NP sweetie, removing the L-shaped pillars is a simple thing. My only concern is that the white may look too stark but if you prefer a really clean look, it may work for you. For the rounded wall, we can try a few things... I can change it to white or use one of the brown colours using a flat paint, or I can switch the pattern from horizontal to vertical. Another option is to add windows. I'll post some pics later on and you can choose one of them.

    I'm going to use base game and the EP/SP items as much as possible but if you have stuff from the store it opens more options.
    I don't see anything on your wish list. Do you have the Bauhaus building collection?

    While I'm working on finalizing the floor plans, perhaps you can take a look online and if you find any décor photos of a few rooms you really, really like, just post the links here. Not so much that I'll duplicate, but it will give me a sense of the kind of style you like. TTFN.
  • soocoolsimsoocoolsim Posts: 3,091 Member

    OK @emma1293 , I tried different options and I think this looks the best. Will be moving on to the interior then to the outdoor activities and landscaping...

    Oopsie... missed this comment. Thanks @AIRIS6962 . I'm not that fast.... spent lots of time on this having fun instead of sleeping, lol. I think the latest tweaks look better and am finally happy with the exterior :)

  • emma1293emma1293 Posts: 42 Member
    hey i dont have the Bauhaus building collection where can i find?... btw i love the colours! how about on some of the colums they could be stone grey? also i had a thought last night on the back at the side am i right in thinking thats the party room? well i was thinking perhaps the french doors could be used to go outside from that room? on to the back?

    btw the site wont let me post links as i'm new here
  • emma1293emma1293 Posts: 42 Member
    i just checked out the Bauhaus building collection i dont have enough sim points to get it :(
