I started building the house and avoided the difficult part by starting with the layout for the greenhouse to the right
I marked the area at the very top red. This is what I think could help me makeing the edges more "smoothly". However, as soon as I delete the roof, those triangular walls are gone, too. Is there a way to create those?
I tried messing around with the floor elevation, but as far as I understand it, only the bottom floors will be "elevated", while the top floor straightens out as soon as I flatten out the lower floors. That is exactly what I don't want. I only want to create those crude walls on the upper floors.
Btw the whole layout of the house doesn't convince me. It looks kind of weird. Not even close to the original pictures.
Hi! I've been away from this thread for a long time. I have been looking at it since I've been playing more lately, and wanted to contribute from my in-game house. Everything is subject to change, I've been building/remodeling the house since my Sim moved in. I don't have a concrete concept except that every room should have some type of function instead of just being for decoration. And of course, to be nice on the eyes and fit my sims personality. (She's a fairy!)
This used to be part of my kitchen, small dining since it was all I could afford at that time it's all been expanded and changed, and door has been replaced.
Thank you! Good to be back.
It's meant to be brick+wainscoting. I have seen it done before. It's visually appealing in real life if the brick is neatly stacked up and flat, instead of the sort-of-decayed look for brick walls. I find it fun to try different things and break the 'rules' of design.
Here's an example, though my concept is not based on this image (I just found it) but it comes close to what I did.
Another great idea is to replace the wainscoting with brick, and the bricks with wallpaper.
My fairy heaven
My more dark and private area.
The entrance to my house, which has a bit of a fantasy touch on colors. It's next to the dark room, I wanted to have different themes in the house since it's habitated by my Sim and I get bored with the same thing. lol
I was wondering if you had any examples of bohemian decorating, I'm into that. I LOVED your landscaping tutorials, I've been reading most of the tutorials on the main page.
I am building another house now, I want to try the new stuff I've picked up from the forums. But I want it to be more bohemian and 'loose', not strict to a certain concept but still visually appealing and organized. I wish I could add pillows and sheets to couches, it would be so pretty!
Hello! I took a little break from building & posting, but I recently completed this for a contest & wanted to share. It's a redecoration of Drea's Salon and Tattoo from Twinbrook - converting it into a lounge/nightclub. Enjoy!
