    It is a beautiful house! I love the structure! :D Great choice of textures for the outside wall. Love the interiors too! Especially the kitchen and dining area. Where did you get that shelf for the bathroom?

    @misscbong - I like this one. It reminds me a lot of the rambler I grew up in. It's classic Americana.

    Lovely starter homes! I like that you actually decorated them and not just give the house the basics.

    Beautiful houses and I love the color scheme you're using. I love houses like that - they are not overdone, just beautiful, practical, elegant.

    @Rc_shabba - Thanks so much!

    @rosemow - Thanks again for stopping by and taking a look! I will check out your thread, as well.

    @keshialee - I really love the BnS challenges, it helps get me out of any building funks, and keeps things fun and challenging!

    @yanti68 - I believe they have shelving under Surfaces when searching. Instead of going by a specific room, you can search through category/function, and it's surfaces, I believe. I stumbled upon them one day, because I hadn't seen them anywhere else.

    @Ash072 - Thanks! I'm glad it looks like an actual house, it was a fun challenge to work on, I don't do a lot of Colonial style homes.

    @libra_style - I honestly have no clue what setting I'm on, sorry! I haven't changed the settings at all, so I imagine it's the one it comes preset to run on. Might be ultra.

    @opod67 - Thanks so much! I love the decorating part, but I don't like to have anything too cluttered or busy. It's a very fine line, in my opinion, so I'm glad you enjoy it!

    @tyene - What a lovely thing to say, thank you! I try to make houses as realistic as possible, and I always enjoy calmer tones with some pops of colour here and there.

    I have started working on a new series of builds based around the idea of modern, pre fab or modular homes. I'm redoing Oasis Springs with them, and having a blast! It's fun to challenge myself to stay within more clean, modern decor and styling.

    There will be more similarly styled and designed home coming for this series of builds, I'm just starting with some smaller homes and will work my way up!

    Modern Modular #1:

    This home takes the place of the Raffia Quinta home, on a 20x15 lot.
    It boasts two bedrooms and a large bathroom, minimal modern landscaping and interior decor. Lots of warm wood tones, neutrals, with some pops of colour throughout.

    Modern Modular is very nice! :) The roofing and the wooden texture of the exterior looks very nice. It looks nice how you have done the corner of windows. The types of and how you have placed the plants and trees in the front area looks nice and suits the style of the home. Sims will enjoy sitting outdoors on the seats on the front patio, enjoying being in the sunshine. Very nice layout and furnishing of the interior of the home! Nice kitchen and dining area. The pears picture on the wall there is a nice touch. It looks great how you have placed the kitchen cabinets, and the texture of the kitchen walls looks great. The fruit bowl on the counter is a nice kitchen item touch. The type of seating that you have used in the build suits the type of home. Sims will enjoy the sunshine coming in through the windows whilst eating their meals at the dining table. Very nice living room area. It looks great how you have placed bookcases either side of the tv. It looks nice how you have angled the armchairs either side of the sofa. Sims will enjoy sitting resting there, watching tv, reading a book and having a chat. The shelf looks nice above the tv with the photo frames on it. Very nice office study and art room. Sims will enjoy painting on the easel there. Nice study desk nook area there for sims yo enjoy sitting at the table using the computer . It looks nice how you have placed the items on the wall shelves there for sims to enjoy seeing whilst sitting at the desk there. It looks great how you have done the dresser and clothes rack alcove in the bedroom. The coat stand near the door looks great there.
    It is a great home :) I hope that the rest of your makeover of Oasis Springs goes well.

    Thanks so much! I tried to keep the exterior true to the Colonial style of exteriors, while making sure the interior was a bit more modern.

    Glad you found them! I stumbled across them randomly, and love them! I just wish more decor items would fit on them like they did in Sim3. Maybe one day!

    Modern Modular #2

    As promised, I am working on a series of Modern style Modular homes to replace some of the existing lots in Oasis Springs. The series will incorporate modern design elements, and will be constructed based around the idea of modular, or pre-fabricated, homes.

    This second house is set to replace Dusty Turf, and is on a 30x20 lot. Cost is $61,526 with the cost of the lot. It is a two bedroom, two bathroom house.

    Great modern home! I am loving the architecture! Inside, the kitchen/diner, the living room and the double bedroom are my favourites! Great job! :D
  • rosemowrosemow Posts: 147,075 Member
    Modern Modular number 2 is very nice! :) Very nice exterior of it. The texture, colour and roofing of the exterior looks very nice. It looks great how you have placed the windows in the build. Great outdoors patio area for sims to enjoy cooking on the bbq and eating their meals in the sunshine at the table there. Child sims will have fun playing on the nearby monkey bars. It looks nice how you have placed the plants and rocks in both the front and back areas of the home. Very nice layout of the interior of the home. Very nice furnishing of the kitchen! It looks great how you have placed the kitchen cabinets there! The fruit bowl and bottles on the counters are great kitchen touches. Nice window dining table area for sims to enjoy eating their meals with the sunshine coming in through the windows. It looks very nice how you have used a grey and white colour scheme through the home, and added touches of red to give a great look. It looks nice how the two end dining chairs are coloured red. Nice living room area. It looks great how you have placed the two bookcases either side of the tv and created an alcove area for the tv. Sims will enjoy sitting resting on the sofas there, enjoying watching tv or having a read. The patterned floor rug and the picture on the wall suit the room and the rest of the home well. It looks very nice how you have done the clothes closet and dressing nook! Very nice master bedroom. It looks nice how you have placed the fruit pictures on the bedhead wall. Sims will enjoy sitting on the chairs that you have placed there having a read of a book from the bookcase. The hanging robe on the bathroom wall is a nice touch there. The kids room is great! It looks great how you have placed the posters on the walls. The red, blue and greet colour scheme of the room looks very nice.
    It is a very nice home :)
