    Username: TrashBinSouvenir
    Preferred builder* (If none, leave blank):
    Type of build (Modern, Traditional, Victorian, Gothic, etc. or leave blank): Indian/Asian Fusion
    Which EPs and SPs do you have? All but Katy Perry
    If you have Showtime, which edition do you have (basic, Limited, or Katy Perry)? Basic
    Lot size (dimensions): 60x60
    Number of bedrooms (No more than 10): 5
    Specific instructions on decorating the bedrooms (gender, age, etc.)?
    Master: A bit "over the top", I have 2 very high level dramatic sims who need luxury : ) I'd like a bed that has a 10 energy.
    Guest room: Either to be used for when foreign visitors come for extended stays or when my game takes me down an avenue I least expect!
    Nursery: I'd like this to be a bit gender neutral at this point, as I'm unsure as what the baby's gender will be right now, and also for future generational use. I would like the store objects to be in place- walker, swing, playpen, diaper changing station, etc.
    Child's room: gender tbd, should be known by the time this request is chosen. I can communicate the gender/personality of the child at that point if that is okay! I always try to do the watermelon etc cheat but have terrible luck!
    Butler's Quarters- self explanatory I suppose, but let me know if any questions linger
    Number of bathrooms: At least 4, one for each main room, but also at least one on each floor, so that will be determined by the floors of the build
    Favorite color schemes: I'm really willing to give a lot of creative freedom with this one- my "main" sim is (to me) half indian/half-asian and is a genie... she is a level 3 visa in all three locations and working on collections. Her outfits consist of mainly the Indian collection from the store, but I also love any Japanese influences, which would work well with anything from "Shang Simla". I believe this house could really go with either the modern look or the more traditional dark woods etc look and be amazing either way. I love both looks equally!
    Colors you dislike: For this house, really any color is fair game!
    Do you want it furnished and decorated? Yes please : ) But when including collection displays, please do not fill these, as my sim is an extensive adventurer- same for gems.
    Can patterns from Create-a-Pattern be used? Yes!
    Required - Please list the owned Store content that can be used: All
    Please list the Dr. Pepper and T-Mobile promotional items that can be used: None
    If you will be placing this lot in an EA world, which one? Bridgeport
    Link to specific house or plan:
    Special requirements (garden, pool, hot tub, etc.)? I would like to have rooms for all various skills- how this is divided or laid out is completely up to the creator. As I own all of the store content, please feel free to use as much as you would like. Usually I think of an "art room", "music room", "gym", "spa", "science/logic" etc room type scheme but they can easily be mixed up. I would love a decent garden as my intended is a faerie- the Garden Station would be wonderful to have included. Feel free to just give some space, as my sims have the plants/seeds to grow any harvestables, but no room to do so atm! I would like the aforementioned spa w/ the sauna and massage table. The gym w/ martial arts equipment. A pool/hot tub would be lovely. A bar to create mixed drinks at. I would like a nice little basement area dedicated to a winery area, and would not mind having the canning station on the lot. A nice little outside sitting area with the garden for the tea set would be adorable, maybe with the faerie castle to tie that in? The house will also need to be fit for a dog, huge wildcard thrown in for me!
    Is communication required before the builder begins work? Yes, just to see where my game currently is with the child situation! Also I am continuing to decide which lot I would like this placed on, so if that affects the building process in a major way please let me know and I will get with you on the exact lot in the world I will be placing it on.
    Additional instructions? I always like the builder to know a bit about the sims/family they are building for. My main sim is a genie who is the top of the Journalism career. With her long lifespan, she has accumulated a lot of skills and social experience. She is a 5 star celebrity and the top of all 3 social groups. She has at least one point in almost every skill somehow or another. Her skill levels continue to grow and new passions are continuously found. She is a world traveler, and is gaining a level 3 visa to all locations, and collecting many relics/gems in the process! While down to earth, she has become very use to the finer things! ;) She dresses in mainly Indian inspired clothing, and I imagine her as half Indian decent and half Asian, which inspired her desire to travel. She will be marrying a top level actor who has a flair for the dramatic, while being a faerie and owning a dog. Not sure how life could become more odd, but I'm sure this sim family will find a way!! They are both family oriented but I want to reign them in to only one child, who they will spoil relentlessly. Thank you so much for whomever picks this request up! Feel free to ask any and all questions, and take plenty of creative liberty!!

    Feb 13/19 - @trashbinsouvenir , a WIP of the girls room... an explosion of colour :smile:

    Feb 5/19 - a few more WIPs for you. (A) was inspired by elegant pastel Indian décor I saw online. These colours are also used for the grand foyer entrance. (B) tea in the Asian inspired zen garden. Behind the waterfall, the other side of the zen garden consists of a sandy area where sims can play in the sand/sand box and practice their martial arts. (C) the dining room is a blend of both influences and brings in the warmer tones.

    The landscaping is pretty much done now. There's a small greenhouse with the SwiftGro gardening station and adjacent space to add more plants. Attached to the greenhouse is a doggie room with pet amenities. The pool has an unique covered hot tub and lots of space and seating for sims to hang out.

    I'm making progress on the first floor which includes a formal music/piano room, bar & pool room, home theatre, butler's quarters, 'wellness wing', kitchen and dining. The 'wellness wing' (Asian inspired) includes a spa with massage, sauna and gym. An art nook, laundry room and full bathroom round out this wing. There are several other skill building activities throughout the lot which you can remove or add to as desired.

    I do have question for you... the third level opens to a room which I've temporarily assigned as a party room including karaoke, DJ booth, stereo and juice keg. The balcony off this room is a 'hookah' area. Are you good with having a party room?


    Feb 2/19
    Hi @trashbinsouvenir , I've reworked the master bedroom to mix reds and purples. Hope you like this version.

    Jan 26/19
    Here's a WIP of the master bedroom for you @trashbinsouvenir . Option of reds or purples... which do you prefer?

    [Edit! Removed WIPs]

    Jan 21/19
    Hi @trashbinsouvenir , below is a shell I created blending Indian and Asian influences as per your request. Is this in line with what you are thinking? Of course this is the very initial stages so will evolve as I move forward. Anything you would prefer I change in terms of the architecture or key colours?

    If you are looking for an even more modern look, an option could be a Kerala type home like the one at this link. Either way, let me know.

    Thanks for claiming my request! :D
  • soocoolsimsoocoolsim Posts: 3,031 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: 3,031 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: 3,031 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.

    Your WIP looks wonderful to me.

  • 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: 3,031 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: 3,031 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: 3,031 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.

    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 :(
