Hiya! Just showcasing my builds. I use no cc + moo to create more "custom" elements, like double-sided fireplaces (LURVE) and special wall accents and headboards. I playtest my builds before uploading to gallery, and sometimes upload my playtest Sims too. I'm pretty new to building, so have been looking for feedback; I'd love for you to share your thoughts in the comments :)

Hope to hear from you - and of course, enjoy!

The interior furnishings and layout are lovely! Very nice open plan kitchen and dining area. The windows dinning area is very nice for sims to enjoy eating meals with sunlight coming in. The stools counter is great! Very nice loft computer study desks and reading area. The outdoors dining patio and custom firepit is lovely! Very nice design of the bbq and counters nook! The basement is very nice! Very creatively designed stone walls fireplace ! The design of the tv and book shelves wall area is very nice!

    Very charming home! I like your layout and decor choices. ♥♥♥

    Mulberry farmhouse is so pretty! I especially love the exterior (I always struggle with more complex roofing), the mix of wall coverings on the ground floor and the little computer area up the stairs. It's such a good idea, and everything fits so well!
  • bbdarlingo8sbbdarlingo8s Posts: 201 Member
    @rosemow I really appreciate you noticing the details like Patchy! And the chairs in the Kids Corner and the toy box in the sandpit :smiley: Thank you for your wonderful comments!

    @Lissykin thank you! I really can't tell you how nice it was to read that - really appreciate!

    @SerraNolwen thank you! I really appreciate you saying that, cuz it really was an effort!
    Roofing is my nightmare :# I really have to talk myself into it, like "TODAY is the day, that we make a more challenging roof"

    I wish they had a way to blend the roof seams more, like the way they do with counters, where they end up sticking together as long as they're together? Am I saying that right even? lol

    Congrats on your Friday highlights feature! (Sorry I'm a bit late :sweat_smile:) I love your creations! <3
  • SerraNolwenSerraNolwen Posts: 611 Member
    I think I know what you mean. Like how the eaves of two different roof types or even sizes sometimes refuse to match up?

    Just checked out your gallery. I think they're beautiful! You build so well using only limited packs. I can use all of your builds as well and plan on using them. I also like how the families you have made come with houses for them. Thank you! Please make more!!!!😊
  • bbdarlingo8sbbdarlingo8s Posts: 201 Member
    @Lissykin thank you! that's so kind of you to say, and it really means a lot to me :smiley:

    @SerraNolwen yes wouldn't it be nice if the roofs recognized other roof pieces and could lock together to make one whole whatever-shaped roof? I hope the devs have thought about that for an update 🤞

    @Heathertibb It feels really good to hear that my builds are finding happy homes with other Simmers! thank you so much for your wonderful comment :smiley:
