    I love all of these builds. The landscaping around Cereus is beautiful and realistic. I think the lakehouse is my favorite so far. So many small details really pull the entire lot together

    Hello!
    Since you greeted me so nice in the introduction thread, I thought I should take a look at your gallery here and I really like what I am seeing here!
    So far my favourite of your creations is your Sweetpea Townhouse. I especially adore the exterior; it looks so well put together and very cozy! I like cozy looking buildings :) So sad that we can't make apartment lots and have multiple families on one lot :(
    Unfortunately I don't have Get Together. Did you use a lot of items of this pack in this lot?
    I might wanna use it in my world :)

    Looking forward to more creations of you!
  • bbdarlingo8sbbdarlingo8s Posts: 201 Member
    @autumnal_sim
    thanks for the visit Jenna! And thank you for the kind words - I too love cozy buildings
    I hear what you're saying about multiple families; what I ended up doing was locking the individual front doors for each sim in my playtest family, so they could be roommates, but only meet in communal areas - unsure if that helps?

    The florist-side living room (furniture) and the outdoor areas (hanging and fence flowers, tables, cafe signs) have the most "get together" items. And then there's loose items like a chair and dresser, the espresso maker - maybe 24 items total that will disappear?

    Let me know if that ends up working for you
    It was really nice to see you here! Hope we see each other often :smiley:

    Waterfront Wedding 01 is a very beautiful hotel and wedding venue!:) Each area of the build, both indoors and outside, is very lovely! It is so very detailed! Very nice exterior design of the building,and great balcony windows. The outdoors wedding courtyard is very lovely! The design of the wedding area with the wedding guests seating either sides of the aisle outdoors and the wedding arch area in the pretty white curtained pergola is lovely! The flowers on the edges of the rows of seating are pretty, and the candles through the courtyard, on the steps and in the pergola are very nice! The interior furnishings are very lovely! The gifts table in the lobby with gifts and balloons is special.Very nice reception dining table and dance floor areas. The setting of the tables is lovely! It is very nice that there is a playroom for kids. The dressing room and waiting rooms are very nice.The furnishing and design of the bridal suite and guest rooms are very lovely!

    I understand putting off something big by building something small, I've been there. :D
    What a beautiful beach house! Another gorgeous creation. The interior design is well thought out. I really like the art looking down in the water, it's an ideal piece for the space. :)

    @rosemow thank you for your wonderful comments! And thank you for the positive feedback about the color choices - they were not easy for me to decide.

    @Lissykin right?? lol I also have like 3 unfinished wedding venues I just keep building around :D
    Thank you very much! And I'm so happy you had a positive reaction to the art - really appreciate you saying that
