    @kezflake, Thank you for the kind comments. :) I'm sorry you didn't get your home in on time, it's such a pretty townhouse! :) I agree with you about it being a weird week. I honestly didn't think I would finish in time. :cold_sweat: I don't think I've ever taken pics and organized a slideshow so fast, in my life. :p

    @Issabella14, Thank you for the lovely comment. :) Your home is Gorgeous! Such a cool design with the pool and sunken sitting area. Love the two story library! :blush:

    @TwtyBrd0707, Fabulous Victorian! So nicely landscaped for privacy and the interiors are Beautifully done. I know how easy it is to go over budget, and once you've put such pretty things in the home, it's so difficult to try to take anything away. :s

    @itguyinsc, Awesome home, Itsy! Wish you got it in on time...I love the way you designed the back deck and the sunken living room. So cool. :) <3

    @lisa17ann, The Novelist Nest is such a Pretty home with the wrap around porch and white fencing. The backyard is lovely and very private, just perfect for Fire. :)

    @mommataurus2, Opulent Seclusion is such a grand and lovely home! I Love the turtles in the pool and Fire's cozy study. :)

    #27 - Ryunoten, Attorneys at Law

    The intercom beeps at your desk, startling you out of concentration. “Ah, yes Rose?”

    Hearing the faint quaver in your voice, Rose suppresses a giggle and chirps, “Your 4:30 is here. Shall I send them back?”

    “Um, yes. Go ahead.” You manage to recover your dignity, making sure to save your work carefully, before there is a polite knock on the door. You stand up with a smile, as a man and a woman enter the room.

    The woman is lovely, with a mass of coiled copper braids pinned at the back of her neck and large soft coloured eyes. Her willowy figure is clad in an lady-like business suit of sky blue. Following her in, his hand gently on the small of her back, is a handsome man that could only be described as Prince Charming with an Asian touch. His blonde hair is slightly longer than custom and his equally sleek frame is clad in a slate grey suit that compliments his companion’s.

    They make a very stunning couple, an impression confirmed when he holds his hand out, “Michael Ryunoten. This is my wife Evangeline.”

    You shake hands with a smile, “Its lovely to meet you. I understand that you’re both lawyers?”

    Evangeline smiles, a soothing gentle smile that relaxes you even further, “Yes. Michael specializes in business law. I have been fortunate enough to be hired as the new district attorney here in town.”

    "Congratulations!” you say, offering them both something to drink.

    “Thank you,” she says, locking eyes with you for a few moments. With an oddly sleepy wonder, you realize that her eyes are slowly changing from one pastel colour to another.

    “Jesus Wu is an old friend of mine,” Michael says, startling you out of your sleepy hypnosis, “He recommended you.”

    You smile with pleasure, remembering the dashing Mr. Wu and his fire engine red GTO. “So you’re looking for a house as well?” you ask.

    Evangeline shakes her head, sipping at the tea she requested in place of coffee. “Not yet, but definitely we are going to consult you about that later. We are staying at Jesus’s home and we love what you have done. For now, we are more interested in asking you to build us an office.”

    “Not a problem,” You click your pen and prepare to take notes, “What would you like?”

    “Two separate offices, but in the same building, as we share a legal library,” Michael says. “I’ll be taking clients there, so I’ll need a lobby and/ or reception area. Dream will be primarily working at the Courthouse, but when she’s not there she needs to have some place to work.”

    “Dream?” you ask, a bit confused.

    She smiles fondly at her husband, “Dream is my nickname. My maiden name was Keeper.”

    “Ahhh. And what would you like in your office?”

    “Oh, the usual office accoutrements. If you could include a comfortable couch and decorate it in restful colours, I would be very satisfied.”

    “That’s easily accomplished,” you assure her.

    Michael speaks up again, “We want to be close to the centre of town, but have a more suburban feel to it. I want people to feel comfortable and at ease coming to talk to me. Oh, parking of course, and some landscaping. I don't want it too look too sterile on the exterior. I think that’s everything. Sweetie?" he asks, deferring to his wife.

    She thinks for a few moments, ticking off a few additional points on her fingertips. We need someplace a little less formal where we can entertain clients. I'd really love a rooftop retreat if you can work that in. And I think that covers everything,” she concludes with a smile.

    “I do have one question we haven’t covered," you interject. What budget will I be working with for this project?”

    “Well, since its not a large office we’re looking for,” Evangeline says, gently setting her tea cup on the tray, “We set aside $60,000 from our budget. Will that be sufficient?”

    “Should be fine.” You rise and shake hands with them again, “I’ll get a contract emailed over to you by tomorrow night.”

    Challenge Brief:
    2 separate offices in the same building
    Budget: 60,000
    Shared library
    Reception area
    Parking

    @BuildnShare Challenge 27 looks great! However I do not see any specific requirements for Michael's office. Are we free to interpret it anyway we see fit, or do you have a suggestion for that?

    @Buildnshare I am just about done with my build. I was just wondering is this meant to be a generic lot? Or would you like it to be saved as a library perhaps to get patrons?

    @BuildnShare I just wanted to apologise for my slideshow not being in room order and without any descriptions. This is a first for me as I do like to have things done tight and neat but unfortunately I had some RL difficulties with my programme and for some very strange reason none of the links worked. I even asked @issabella14 to test them after I pm'ed it 2 her and we were unsuccessful one again. I therefore had to resort to noah's ark methods 2 get a slideshow up. :)
