Hawthorne Project Sims!

3gHHX7s.png

Welcome to The Hawthorne Project, a place for those less fortunate than ourselves to create their own slice of home in a wayward world.

Founded by Ms Elizabeth Hawthorne, star of stage and screen including the lead in the epic movie Gone With The Sims.  The Hawthorne Project are working in collaboration with @BuildnShare to provide homes for those Sims who find themselves, for whatever reason, without one.

We are asking your Sims to come forward and apply for the chance to be given a new home, custom built to their needs, with everything they might need to reboot their lives.

Fill out the application form and send us a photo and who knows “It could be you!

    You must upload your sim to the gallery for it to count as an official entry, no CC Is allowed for this challenge. Your entry should must the hashtag #BnS_Hawthorne and the current challenge number. i.e #BnS_Hawthorne1 for the first round.

    What a great idea @BuildnShare ! I don't usually get involved with CAS challenges, but I do enjoy making Sims for my own game. I'll need to give this a shot!
  • EuphorialQueenEuphorialQueen Posts: 5,914 Member
    @BuildnShare @FaithofKaela
    Are Sims to be fresh from CAS or can households include BIG (Born-In-Game) Sims with gained skills etc?
    I have a mix of my own creations that are fresh/never played and Skilled plus BIG in same households.
    Would a hashtag like #BNS_Sims or #BNSHawthorne be required to tag entries?

    That is a very good point about tagging @EuphorialQueen!! I will add that to the challenge requirements. And of course it can include BIG Sims, it can include any sims, after all, anyone can fall on hard times :)

    Please tell us a little bit about yourself and your family, if appropriate, and why you are applying to The Hawthorne Project.

    My name is Edith Moskowitz and I'm writing on behalf of a young teen-aged girl that has earned my utmost admiration; My women's group has sponsored three orphaned refugees and collected the funds to bring them here. We've found homes for each of them, but the eldest, Rima, is unconsolable that she might be separated from her brother and sister, and we can't find anyone that can take all three. She's convinced she can do it on her own. She's a very responsible girl and has a very convincing plan on how to support her family. We've found a local coffee shop that will sell her paintings and a farmer's market that will buy anything she can grow. Her little brother, Joram, is even offering to catch fish for the local fishmonger. The women's group will provide day care so that Rima can continue with her schooling. I really think they have a very good chance and it would break my heart to disappoint them after all they've been through.

    Tell us about your ideal home space:

    They need a home that wouldn't be impossible for them to financially maintain, so nothing too fancy. Rima insists that they can all share a bedroom, but I think they should have at least two, and a bathtub for the toddler. They'd obviously need a place to cook and share family meals, toys and activities for the little ones, books, and an easel and garden for income. They'd also need a place to play and share family time. It should be cheerful and homey so that they feel safe and comfortable, and although the poor dears are very grateful to be here, they are homesick, so at least a touch of the Middle East in the architecture or decorations would be wonderful.

    Well it's now the 5th of September, so we have a new family who have been accepted into the Hawthorne Project. Congrats to @Ainsleyf, your family will be the next Sims to have a home built for them! Watch out for the next challenge :)

    YAY!!!!! I did play them. It's really hard to get the conflict resolution points without adults in the household but otherwise were good. I can't wait to see what people build!
  • FaithofKaelaFaithofKaela Posts: 1,822 Member
    Congrats @Ainsleyf!! Can't wait to start building something for your little refugee family <3

    Please tell us a little bit about yourself, and your family if appropriate, and why you are applying to The Hawthorne Project.

    Hi, my name is Maimah, we're applying for the Hawthorne Project because we've got nowhere else to turn. My sons and I have had to move back in with my parents because I became sick, and their current house is in no way big enough for us! We're 5 people in a tiny 3 bedroom trailer right now and 2 of those room are -half- bedrooms! Thank god my kids are such good kids, but they're both growing up so fast. My oldest is really a young adult already, but he's staying with us to help pay the bills. I don't work anymore, I can't. My younger son is still a teen, he helps around the house alot. My older son is a loveable goofball, he gets along with everyone really. Very into his video games though. My younger son loves food, wants to be a chef when he's older, but he really doesn't like people all that much. (gets it from me I imagine.)

    My mom and stepdad well, lets just say opposites attracted when they were younger. You ever hear of Felix and Oscar of the odd couple? Yeaa that's my parents to a T! My dad is all about the money, he was an accountant when he was younger at this point he just takes any job that earns the money. My mom loves the outdoors, she loves to garden and go camping and such. Me? I love to learn. My memory is going but I still love to read anything I can get my hands on, or play on the computer, or research on the computer. See I don't leave my room very often, except to make dinner for everyone and such. I don't leave the house hardly ever. As you can imagine, in a house as small as ours that can be a problem! We ALL have big personalities, and 5 big personalities in a wee tiny little trailer just doesn't cut it.






    Tell us about your ideal home space: (You can use images if you wish)

    We'd love a house big enough for all of us, or 2 small houses on one lot (preferrable!). My kids and I would love our own space, but my parents need to be close enough to help if things go wrong healthwise. I'm not very good with stairs anymore, and I don't deal well with heat, so windows I can open are a must in my bedroom, I'd also like some sort of computer in my room. The boys would be happy with some sort of man cave as long as there were computers and a place to hang out and play on the console. My mom and dad love to sit and watch Netflix, and cooking. A small garden for my mom would be nice, but not to big, she loves to garden but she also wears out easily these days. Just something to keep her hand in. My dad likes to work on his computer all the time, usually in the kitchen of all places, but he enjoys it. just a cheap one, he's really not very computer literate! He won't know the difference. Our houses don't have to be huge, just a little bigger than what we have now would be nice. Oh.. and we as a general rule hate clutter. Anything we have to dust isn't going to be nice for us, we have 3 Northern Breed dogs (or will when pets goes in teehee) so we can't afford more things for dog fur to stick to! All of us are kinda ok with being alone, but we also like to be together, so a place for me and the family to chat about our days and just relax would be nice too.

    I know, we should wish for the moon and catch it, but I thought I'd apply anyway.
