edited July 2017 in The Sims 4 Lots
Let me introduce myself.

I live in the US in Pennsylvania. I'm a grandmother of 9 and a great grandmother in December of 2017.
I've always loved playing video games and when I retired, I needed something to play for just fun and to keep my blood pressure down. I discovered Sims 4 in January of this year and have enjoyed building anything I could build. I don't actually play with sims characters much other than testing the homes/businesses out. I do like creating the sims characters, just don't use them much as play characters.

I discovered this forum months ago but only got active over the last few months. I love entering the challenges because I have learned so much from creating with a goal. The other builders on this forum are just amazing. Even though I'm not as accomplished as some other on the forum, (but do plan on working toward that), I thought I would share some of my favorite builds I have done. All are play tested.

Cheat codes used:

bb.moveobjects on
bb.showhiddenobjects
bb.ignoregameplayunlocksentitlement

All contain #nocc

I'm still a kind of new at this, but I'm having a blast.
I'll try and keep loading new homes often.

Origin ID: kimartist, please follow me in the gallery to see my newest work.

Hope you enjoy!

    The exterior design of the home and the layout of Backyard Oasis looks so very nice! :) Very nice roofing on the home! The backyard areas look so very nice! They do look like an oasis for sims to retreat to. The trees look great, and the hot nook is very nice! Sims will enjoy relaxing in the tub. The hot tub small patio and steps is a nice touch. The water feature windows, rocks waterfall and the pool looks so very creatively pretty! It looks so nice! Very nice outdoors dining and bar area! Sims will enjoy cooking on the BBQ and eating the food at the dining table in the outdoors air. They will enjoy sitting on the stools having a drink from the bar. The alternating colour of the stools is a nice touch. The string of lantern lights and the candles on the side tables beside the BBQ are pretty touches. Very nice sitting area on the back patio for sims to rest there, and have a chat whilst looking at the calming backyard setting. The trellis roofing is very nice.

    Grand Wedding Chapel

    Penny wanted a fabulous wedding in a glorious venue. Her heart settled for this one for its enchanted atmosphere, the many candles and flowers. There's a beautiful outdoor wedding gazebo and an beautiful indoor chapel in case it rains on the big day. There's everything your sims would need to organize the BEST wedding ever! There is a separate private romantic honeymoon cottage with a private Jacuzzi where the newly weds can WooHoo for a pleasant honeymoon night. #qcmonthly22 #nocc #playtested #moo

    Hello
    I will repost here what I posted on the challenge thread
    Grand Wedding Estate is such a very pretty place for the sims to enjoy getting married! :) Both the indoors and outsoors areas look very pretty! The water fountain features in the front areas of the build look very nice. The welcome sign with the statue, water windows, rocks, water fountains and flowers on the corners of the venue, looks so very nice! Very nice layout of the interior of the venue! The design of the outdoors Chapel area looks so very pretty! The two flights of steps, the way that the spandrels are used, the floral water sculpture in the nook, and the flowers and candles in the undercover area look so pretty! It looks very nice how the chairs have been set up there for the wedding guests to enjoy watching the wedding ceremony, with aisleways between them . The bonsai plants are a nice touch there. Sims will enjoy listening to the piano music during the wedding. The walls of candles bordering the area, and the floor lights on the edges of the pathways look so very special! Very nice indoors wedding ceremony area! The butterflies and the candles on the pedestals on the edges of the pews look very pretty! The dome type windows look very nice in the venue. It is nice that there is a hot tub nook in the honeymoon cottage. The water windows look nice bordering the nook area. Very nice pond area! The flowers, rocks and plants look so very pretty on the edges of the pond! The fountains in the pond is very nice. Nice raised folly for the sims to enjoy having wedding photos in. The vases of flowers there look pretty.
    It is a very special and pretty wedding venue! :)

    Penny is very pretty! @kimartist :) Her wedding dress is very nice! Leon looks very stylish in his nice grey suit and black bow tie. It is very special pictures of Leon waiting for Penny to join him as she walks down the aisle, of them kissing after the wedding, and the them enjoying dancing together. Leon is tenderly touching Penny's face <3 It looks very nice how the reception tables have been set up, around the dance area. The pink chairs, flowers on the tables and white tables are pretty :)

    I had a look at the other wedding photos in your album and they are all so special! <3
