Koi's House for Build-n-Share Challenge #191

I have 2 versions of this house. The original had 4 CC patterns, 3 of which I wasn't sure who created them or where their links were. So I created a version with no CC patterns for the official entry.

Here is the link for the no CC version of Koi's house Rustic Modern with no CC


Here are the pictures from that house.

The great room generates a +40 beautifully decorated moodlet.

If an addition is added to the house in the future the double windows beside the desk can be removed for access. The study could then be moved to the addition and the study area could become a dining area.

    Very nice indeed. Great architecture and looks fresh and clean inside. Well done. Did you create the slanted ceiling?
  • cwaddellcwaddell Posts: 4,786 Member
    Thank you @rosemow and @soocoolsim . I created the slanted ceiling by using the half gable roof twice. Once to get the roof line to meet up with the gable roof line over the bedrooms and then once to get the interior auto wall to be built lining up with the kitchen wall. I could not figure out how to put ceiling tiles on the slanted roof though.

    Simple and elegant. Harmony of horizontal lines. Good.

    Build-n-Share Challenge #193

    In the past we often escaped the hot, humid weather of Northern Florida by renting a beach house on the beaches in North or South Carolina. We would have family reunions there because those beaches were about half way between here and Virginia, where our families live.

    This is a take on a smaller, and less expensive, version of some of those beachfront houses. I built it on a 20X30 lot I created in Sunset Valley.

    The Beach House looks very nice ! :) It is great that it is built on stilts. Very nice blue colour scheme of the exterior walls. It looks great how the stairs are placed in the build. Very nice upper deck and screened porch areas ! Sims will enjoy sitting resting on the seating there, in the outdoors sea air or looking out at the sea views. It is great that there is an outdoors shower in the stairs deck.The layout of the interior looks very nice. Very nice open plan layout of the living, dining and kitchen areas. The wooden texture of the furnishings looks nice. Very nice windows dining alcove for sims to enjoy eating meals at the table with sunshine coming in through the windows. Sims will also enjoy sitting on the stools eating a meal at the counter. Sims will enjoy sitting resting on the sofas in the living room area , chatting, reading and watching tv. The seashells wall picture looks very nice there! Very nice furnishing of the bedrooms. The ships pattern on the single beds is a very nice touch. Nice desk nook on the upper landing for sims to enjoy reading or doing homework at the table. The calendar /posters look great on the wall.
    It is a very nice beach home :)

    Nice house, you really captured the feeling of the beach.
  • creativemetaphorcreativemetaphor Posts: 1,376 Member
    That's beautiful! I love that deck/stair, and adore the upper hall overlooking the living room, it's one of my favorite features of a house. The decor and furniture is exactly what I imagine a beach house to have (never having been to one myself lol).
  • cwaddellcwaddell Posts: 4,786 Member
    Thank you @rosemow , @Jessabeans and @creativemetaphor for your kind remarks. Working on this build reminded me how much fun we had on those vacations and how I loved the sound of the waves and the refreshing breezes.

    Cute house. A great place to relax. I can almost feel the sand between my toes :smiley:
  • cwaddellcwaddell Posts: 4,786 Member
    Thank you @Funkycorm and @soocoolsim . I wish I was at a beach house now. It's really hot and humid here in Northern Florida this time of year. :)

    Build-n-Share Challenge #194

    This modern house was inspired by the Craftsman houses built in California during the early 20th century. I built it on a 20X20 lot in Dragon Valley so that it could be placed on many sized lots in other towns. It has a large front porch with a chess table and rocking chairs so that the sims can easily socialize with any neighbors who walk by. There is a small back porch for easy access to the perfect garden plants in the back yard. Down stairs there is a greatroom with the living room on one side of the stairs to the second floor and the kitchen/dining room on the other side. In the back is a bathroom for easy clean up after gardening. Upstairs there is a bathroom, a master bedroom and two children's bedrooms. This build uses custom windows, doors, fireplace, etc from the Grant Park craftsman collection by B5 Studio here.

    The exterior design of the Craftsman is very nice! :) The craftsman cc looks very nice how it has been used in the build. The colour of the exterior looks very nice. Very nice front porch! Sims will have fun playing chess, or enjoy sitting there chatting in the outdoors air. The flowers look pretty either sides of the front steps. Very nice open plan layout of the interior of the home! The wooden themed furnishings look very nice. Nice art nook for sims to enjoy painting on the easel whilst looking out through the windows. They will enjoy sitting relaxing on the sofa in front of the fire, watching tv . The plants are nice touches of green and nature in the living area. The floor tiling in the bathrooms looks very nice.It is nice that there are three bedrooms in the home. The blue and lavender colours of the bedrooms look nice are calming for the sims when sleeping. Sims will enjoy playing the guitar and keeping fit doing chin ups on the gym item in their bedroom.
    It is a very nice Craftsman home :)

    The design of Bonekeeper Graveyard looks very nice :) Very nice lilypad and water fountain reflection pond . Sims will like sitting on the seat bench there, reflecting on their loved ones who have passed away. It is great that death fish are in the pond. It looks great how the tomstones have been placed in the areas. The exterior of the Caretaker’s Cottage looks great! The wall texture gives a great look to the building and suits well that it is located in a Graveyard. Very nice layout and furnishing of the interior of the cottage. The interior wall texture looks great also. It is great that it is two storeys and there are areas in the bedroom and living areas for a guard dog to sleep. The lavender colour of the bed, and the patterned floor rug underneath it looks very nice. Sims will like sitting at the desk table catching up on office work on the computer. The plants look very nice either sides of the stairs. Nice sofa seat corner sitting nook for the caretaker to enjoy resting and reading a book.
    The design of the build looks great! :)
