Build the House Challenge

edited June 3 in The Sims 4 Lots
This is a challenge to take just the rooms on the lot and build a one story house. You can add hallways, porches, will need a roof etc.

The name of the lot is the same as the title of this thread. It is under my name as it is here in these forums.

The challenge is to build the house and re-upload it to the gallery and post pics of it here.

Here are some screen shots of what's there:

    Build the House Challenge is the name of the lot, you could just use my forum name, same in gallery, to find it.

    This is what I've done so far. A lot of wasted space.

    I fixed some of the wasted space. Someone please do this challenge with me, or at least comment on what you think of what I've done. Thanks

    Your home looks very nice! :) It looks great how you have placed the rooms together! The layout design looks very nice and makes good use of space. The added curved porch is a nice touch in the build.

    I've thought about trying this, I love building challenges! But I have a few questions:

    1. Which packs are used in these rooms? I don't have all the packs and some things would probably disappear. If that happens, can I replace the missing objects with other things? Or is this only for those who have all the packs that you currently own?
    2. Do we have to upload the finished product? Or can we just post screenshots here? I don't go on the gallery much, mostly play in offline mode because the gallery lags my computer/game to the point it's almost unplayable. :( If I do download anything, which is rare, I use the online gallery.
    3. Can we decorate the hallways, porches, etc. that are added to the build? Or should they be left empty?
    4. Can we add landscaping and/or objects to the lot?
    5. Lastly, in relation to #2, could you perhaps give us a list of the rooms you used? That way I could just find them in my game and go from there rather than having to use the gallery at all.


    Thanks, I really like this challenge, it's a great idea and I LOVE your Tiny House Challenge since those are the kinds of builds I enjoy creating the most. :)

    EDIT: Just thought of one more question. Can we change the color of the objects, wallpaper, flooring in the rooms?

    Nevermind... :(

    I'm gonna give this a go!
  • Karababy52Karababy52 Posts: 1,632 Member
    Okay, I've scrutinized the images you provided of the rooms and unfortunately, I can tell right now that this challenge won't work for me because I don't have all the packs you do. I don't have; Cats & Dogs, Parenthood or Jungle Adventure. The only rooms with objects that wouldn't almost completely disappear or morph into other stuff is the Laundry Day room, the room with the hot tub and I think the bathroom. Oh well...

    For those who do try this challenge, good luck and have fun! :)

    So this challenge was indeed exactly that - a challenge! - however, I think I managed to pull together a pretty nice home without having to change/update/add too much...

    I felt compelled to update a few of the windows, so that they matched a bit better from the outside. I added a door to the living room and dining room so that the family has better access to the master suite. I also added a window to the kitchen, laundry room, and secondary bedroom to add some visual interest from the outside. As you can see, I did a little landscaping too. The family now has a few extra spots to rest, relax, do yoga, grill, and dine outdoors.

    Hope ya like it!

    Cheers,
    Ro

    I'm going to try this! I kinda suck at making houses, but I'll try my best to contribute!
  • AVewwySmolPotatoAVewwySmolPotato Posts: 3 New Member
    Ah, just realized I don't have all the packs. I'll try to replace some of them, but I'm not sure that's allowed? Sorry if this breaks the challenge.

    No, replace what you don't have, it's okay.

    It's pretty difficult to replace everything without stylising everything, do you think you could make a base game version?
