    Starting: $11,859
    Sale: $21,144
    Profit: $9,285

    I wish i was able to do more with the decorations, but i wasn't very good at money-managing this one. I think i'll be able to do better with my next flip, which i've decided will be Buttonsginger's Unfinished Starter 2

    It is nice that you have started a showcase thread for your builds :) I will enjoy seeing your builds.
    Your first home for the House flipping challenge is very nice! :) The open shutter windows are a very nice touch in the home. The yellow flowers in the corner nooks beside the front porchway are nice and sunny for sims to see when coming home. Very nice furnishing of the interior of the home! The study room is very nice. Sims will enjoy sitting at the desk table using a computer or having a read of a book. They will enjoy painting on the easel with the sunshine coming in through the window. Very nice living room area! It looks nice how you have placed the sofas facing each other so as sims can enjoy sitting relaxing there, chatting face to face. It looks nice how you have angled the bed in the bedroom. The bedroom floor pattern is nice. The flowers are a pretty touch on the bathroom sink counter.
    The home is very nice :)

    I made quite a few structural changes; i expanded the front of the house and replaced a few windows. I'm actually very proud of the exterior of the house, and pretty pleased with the interior too. I want to get better at landscaping though, i seem to have trouble with that aspect of building. I just can't seem to make it look realistic and full enough. I usually stick with the cliche setups: line the walkway to the door, put trees in 2 opposite corners and stick to putting flowers/bushes up against the house. It always looks boring IMO.

    Your second flip house looks very nice! :) The changes to the exterior look very nice! The expansion of the front and the new colour of the exterior looks nice. The red open shutter windows look nice in the build. Very nice furnishing of the interior of the home! The living room is very nice! The plant is a nice touch of nature in the room for sims to see whilst having fun playing chess at the table or enjoying sitting resting on the sofa watching tv. It looks nice how you have angled the sofa and tv into the corner. The sims will enjoy the sunlight coming in through the side windows whilst sitting there.Very nice bedroom! The flowers on the bedside table are pretty for sims to see when laying in bed. Nice sitting area in the bedroom for sims to enjoy sitting on the seat having a read of a book from the bookshelf. The blue colour of the bed and seat look nice together. The circular rug is a nice touch in the room. The paintings are nice touches of the wall in the home.
    The home is very nice :)

    Each of your three builds are very nice! :) The modern homes are very nice! Very nice furnishing of the homes! The different colours of the furnishings in Modega gives a very nice look to the rooms. The exterior design and layout of the second home looks so nice! Very nice patio areas! The pool and the outdoors bbq and dining patios are very nice! It looks very nice how the stairs are placed there. The type of and placement of the windows in both of the homes looks very nice. Very nice pool venue! The design of the bulld is very nice! It looks nice the way the sims enter the venue through the building, where sims can enjoy sitting relaxing on the sofas and armchairs. The flooring rugs looks nice. The blue and white colour scheme of the furnishings through the build both indoors and outside looks very nice. Very nice outdoors pool and hot tub areas! The patterning around the edge of the pool looks very nice! It looks great the way that the hot tub is in the middle of the pool! Sims will have fun swimming in the pool or enjoy relaxing in the hot tub. The outdoors dining area is very nice! Sims will enjoy cooking meals on the grill and eating them at the umbrella covered tables in the outdoors air. Nice sofa and armchairs sitting area for sims to enjoy relaxing there poolside in the sunshine .
    The builds are very nice! :)

    I built a youth center for my child/teen groups. It's really cool seeing a bunch of kids hanging out in one area, and they look like they have a lot of fun there. I never really played with the child/teen life stage before, but now with the club system i really enjoy it! This one is up in my gallery too!

    Great builds!! I especially like the second house. The red was a bold choice, but I think it was very well done!

    I also like the hot tub in the middle of the pool. I wish I could go there in real life, but I might have to settle with having my Sims live there!

    Oh, and the diagonal bed in the first build was a really nice touch!
  • rosemowrosemow Posts: 144,233 Member
    The Youth Center is a great place for kids and teens to have fun spending time there! :) There are many fun activities for them to enjoy doing there! Very nice sofa and armchairs areas both inside and outdoors for sims to enjoy sitting there chatting or reading a book. The way the seating is placed, in circles looks very nice! The outdoors firepit fenced nook is very nice! Sims will enjoy sitting around the fire toasting food and keeping warm. Child sims will have fun playing on the spaceship, pirate ship and monkey bars. The art and science room is very nice! Sims will enjoy doing art work on the art tables and experimenting on the science table. The animal wall pictures and the colourful giraffe look very cute! The patterned floor rugs add a great look to the room! Very nice library! The variety of colourful armchairs looks great! The coloured jigsaw flooring looks very nice. Sims will enjoy sitting resting on the armchairs reading a book from the bookcases. The animals look very cute in the playroom! Sims will have fun playing with the toys, dollhouse and the llama table top game. Very nice games room for sims to have fun playing games on the computer or arcade machine games. Very nice rooftop dancing patio! Sims will have fun dancing to the DJ booth music. Very nice kitchen area for the sims to enjoy getting food and drinks from the vending machine or a cup of tea or coffee. The cabinets look very nice how they are placed there.
    The venue is very nice! :)
