    Gingerbread Magic House is a lovely gingerbread house! @coolsim9999999 :) Very creatively designed build! The candies throughout the home are very nice! The colourful floor tiles on edges are very nice and the rows of colourful crystals are very nice! The icing. cherries and candies themed roofing looks great! The festive wreaths and garlands are very nice on exterior and great gingerbread exterior texture! Very nice interior layout of the build! The five rooms are very nice! Very lovely and pretty room with all the candies on the floor! The snowflakes are very nice on the walls,
    It is a very nice and sweet gingerbread home! :)

    What an intriguing concept! It could go very lavish or very messy, depending on who he's collecting from.

    Thanks so much @wendyology B)!

    So I ran out of time for this challenge last month, hoping to get one in this time! I agree with @wendyology - intriguing!! For me and my way-to-literal mind debt collector house immediately conjured up some Dickensian Scrooge type with a family living innocently behind the scenes....need to give it some thought to bring it a little more up to date and simslike lol. Great idea @coolsim9999999 I love the out of the box thinking!
  • TaoronTaoron Posts: 1,974 Member
    Debt Collector...I started with a hole in the ground, under a rock. I think it needs more work.
  • coolsim9999999coolsim9999999 Posts: 4,323 Member
    That’s o.k. @AliSim19 :)! I’m glad that you and @wendyology both love my idea so much <3! Great idea, and I can’t wait to see it B)!

    Lol @Taoron :D! I'm looking forward to seeing your build, as well B)!

    Great idea @coolsim9999999 ! We'll see if I can get creative enough to make something. My kids and I have just started watching "Once Upon a Time" and so my thoughts imediently went to Mr. Gold. I would love to give him a family and a happy ending 🙂 (not sure how the show ends, maybe he already has one)
  • coolsim9999999coolsim9999999 Posts: 4,323 Member

    currently working on mine. got most of the home done. Thanks for creating this! I love build challenges vs. playing challenges. I'm much more of a builder.

    Creative notes about your build: All no custom content artwork was created by myself. I used a family created by guidjsim (Thank you) to play test my build.
    Back Story: Mr. Gold owns the town of Storybrooke. Everyone pays their debts to him. He has a pawn shop where you can find him if you need him, but if you owe him anything he will find you. Therefore, there is no need to have seating in his pawn shop. The house has three bedrooms. One for himself, Belle, and if Bae is ever found there is a room waiting for him as well. (Sorry guys, my knowledge is pretty small as I just finished watching the first season)

    Your build is so very creative! @AlJay :) You have designed it so very well! It is so very detailed! Each area looks so very great! Very nice design, furnishing and layout of the bakery, hardware store home, and pawn shop! They are all built and furnished so lovely! Your wallart for the build is very great!
    It is very lovely Storybrooke town! :)

    Creative notes about your build: I love Building homes. just not great at it yet. I tried to make a unique home for this one.
    Back Story: After a few years of running the business from home James' wife asked that he turn the basement into his work space and try to keep "business" out of the living area, after a few hostile break ins to their family home. He decided to make a vault room filled with most of the Items that had been recovered.
